Re: Joe at Carnegie Hall

I actually found out about the Carnegie show from a Twitter message (or a tweet or whatever the heck you call it) from the street team around 10:30 am (tickets went on sale at 11:00), but the email with the package never showed up until late afternoon.  I don't use Twitter much but there are a few feeds that I get as a message on my phone.  It can be annoying, but also quite helpful as in this case.

I have been a proponent of morphing the Street Team in to something more current like a Fan Club. I think the old Street Team model is dead in that there are no traditional activities still viable. The Street Team served it's purpose. With social media everbody is a Street Teamer if you give them content and information to share. The days of hanging posters at the record store are over. The day of the record stores are over. You have fans that want to share Joe without any organization necessary. There seems to be a need to allow Meet and Greet access to Street Teamers but when you have other ways such as Box Set and Litho purchases then you still can gain access or through PBS promotions. The PBS exposure is the best thing to ever happen to Joe in the US and now the momentum is on the side of J&R. Those of us that have worked the Street Team have been rewarded by seeing the success happen before our very eyes.

How to transition is the question and I don't know what the answer is.

+1. There will be howls of the haves and have-nots, criticism of ticket prices ad nauseum, but I am ready for this. There should be a way to allocate prime seats for the fan club members ahead of the scalpers.
We early fans worked hard to s/t Joe to the public and the job is done. Time to move on. We paid for the perqs when we street teamed anyway with our time, gas and other expenses and never gave it a thought.

Re: Joe at Carnegie Hall

Thanks for the heads up Eric.
i don't know about paying for a fan club.....not that I haven't done it but you still can't give meet and greets to whoever joins the club. I'd prefer some sort of lottery or something so it is not a pay to play thing.
and actually some of us still do put up flyers, or rather place the cards places. I like doing that when given the opportunity, which is not all the time. Until it becomes completely unmanageable (loaded word) i think that getting perks to those who pay attention is not a bad thing. I wish there were a better system for it as it does not work great each time and some fans have felt left out because they didn't want to pester for an answer or confirmation of a meet and greet spot.
i'd rather have a darn lottery or something with a strict - reply within a certain amount of time rule or we move to the next one - or whatever. IDK just rambling


FWIW the email lists are odd, i seem to get most of them but it is not logical. I have a few email addresses and some are more consistent than others. I did notice on some emails (most of which do not get read because TRIBUT, lol) that you can click something to stay on the list. I know this has failed for some friends who told me but yeah you can also unsubscribe which i had to do with tribut.

Re: Joe at Carnegie Hall

Fan club membership??? Seriously come on what a great way to turn off tons of people. I will not pay for a fan club for anyone are you kidding spoils the whole vib. Turns it into its all about the money. It will turn me off for sure. Just as bad if you told me I had to pay to join the forum.
