2016 In Retrospect: Unplugged Concert

Greetings and Salutations Crowbot!

We've been in monk mode since our Halloween show at the Gothic Theater on October 28th, so we were thinking of potentially doing bare-bones versions of our tunes and chatting about our first full year as a band. Together.

And so we did.

But we did NOT anticipate the turnout we received. Our Crowmunity showed up in full force and we are continually blown away by our amazing Hollowers. 

Here's a cut of our fan-favorite "An Open Letter to Kim K" from our concert:

So, we had about 50 people tune in 'at the peak' and a solid 30 people or so on average throughout the whole night. It was such a cool experience for us and being our first time doing a live show, we weren't sure what to expect. But when we looked over at the screen we were shocked by what we saw: a barrage of likes, hearts, thumbs, and O-faces.

We received some SOLID feedback too and we certainly appreciate it! Here's what we learned:

  1. For one, we're going to structure the next live show we do with the concert up front with a Q/A session at the end, so if you want to partake in just the tasty tunes, you can do that, and if you want to sit around and chat with us at the end, we'll be delighted to answer any questions you may have. 
  2. We're going to stream live using YouTube. It's a much better streaming service that has a much cleaner way to access the stream. We had feedback that people reached weird javascript errors on FB from our link. Not cool, Zuckerberg!
  3. We're going to have a little contest / raffle / bug-the-shit-out-of-us where you'll be invited to join us in the room while we do the show. Not going to lie, 'twas a bit strange performing to an iPhone without seeing your beautiful face. Although, we had interactions and comments up, we still would love to seem some of your beautiful faces in the studio.
  4. Obviously, there's a laundry list of other smaller items we want to clean up, improve on , but this was quite the learning experience for us. You know us, we're always trying to bring our music, show, and stuff to the next level to bring you joy.

Did you have anything else to contribute? Don't know if you were on the live stream, but we would LOVE LOVE LOVE any feedback, suggestions, ideas etc. into how to make our live show better for you. 

We <3 you and we'll see you soon!

Be well. Chat Soon. 

Spencer, Jonathan, Ethan, Angela, & Crocket
