The Shondes Benefit Show

Post  WhatFreshHeck on Fri Feb 17, 2012 9:08 pm

The Shondes have already a show at Thee Parkside for May 11th (facebook event here) and they'd like to make Permanent Wave event/benefit. They have a full bill and everything. All we need to do is figure out how we want to involve ourselves with that show.

I've never run a benefit show, so if anyone has input on this I'd really love to hear it.

We could have a bake sale at the show?

So based on our March 4th meeting, it sounds like Planned Parenthood is the top candidate for where money should go based on visibility of the organization and recent political issues. Our to-do list items right now look like:

Poster and fliers: I'm sure The Shondes have friends who will take the lead with this if we don't. Let's work with them and get the word out about this show.
Permanent Wave Bay Area presence at the show: We should be able to get a small to medium-sized table in the venue, no problem. I like the idea of baked goods and some reading material would be super cool, either stuff about Planned Parenthood or about that.
The money itself: Has anyone done fundraising for Planned Parenthood before? Does anyone want to learn how? Like I mentioned before, the band is pretty cool about this being a benefit but they have to eat and buy gas. Avi mentioned that one way to divvy up the money is assume a certain number of tickets the band would expect to sell, then donate their share of the door above that number. That gives us incentive to get hella people at the show.

If anyone wants to take initiative on any of these, now's a great time to do that! Let's talk about it here and at our next meeting.

I am not super experienced when it cones to benefit shows/benefits in general, but it's something I have been really wanting to get into! I would be happy to swing by planned parenthood and get some literature to give out. I also think the method Tim mentioned for collecting money seems like a pretty good idea. Should we try and get some permawave lit by then. Maybe just like an informational flyer? I would also be down to help bake stuff Razz

Lindsey, if you could take the lead on this, I would be super grateful. I can put you in touch with their singer/booker and support you however else I can, but I don't think I can organize this event as well as I'd like with the other commitments I have.

It'll be awesome. I promise.

I don't know if I feel completely comfortable taking the lead on it fully, just because I wasn't a huge part of the initial planning and I'm not familiar with the band's music or the band themselves :/ I would be happy to go to Planned Parenthood though and get some informational pamphlets/fundraising info from them! Anyone else have time to get in contact with the band??

If you want to just focus on the benefit side of things and organizing our presence there, I'm fine acting as the contact with the band or venue. Just tell me what we need and I'll talk to them. There really wasn't a whole lot of initial planning. Louisa of The Shondes just took charge. That's why I figured this would be a good opportunity for you if you were interested.
