DIY Best Show FOT Listener Parties
« on: May 29, 2010, 06:00:55 PM »
I'd like to start a Do-it-yourself zip code listener party option, so that one could meet and listen with local FOT at a nearby home or venue together.  Official FOT gatherings are few and far between, and most of us never get there for one reason or another. So, this could be the DIY alternative, certainly no substitute, but a humble, local alternative.
If you are interested, post your zip code/ or area here. Please mention if you are willing to host, or to find the local venue, or can suggest a place to listen in your area.
You may not want to host total FOT strangers in your own home, so maybe try to find an amenable local club, bar, restaurant, late night public library or train station with free Wi-Fi.

Let the sorting begin!

I dress up in a possum costume and eat trash whenever I listen live to The Best Show.

The reasons why are between me and my holistic therapist.

I just hope you can be open minded enough to accept me for who I am.

though I'm in downtown Seattle when the show starts (5pm Pacific) as I'm leaving work. Unless I'm the only 9-to-5'er?

We should average them all, and meet wherever that is

Including one of the Atl zip codes, I got 34218, Bradenton Beach, Florida.  A 1.5 hour drive from New Port Richey.
