AND BETTER ORGANIZED LISTS.
*lurks artist for next 4 weeks*
182189, I disagree|
Posted by handle, Tue Jan-27-09 12:37 AM
MC Disagree here--
I liked the *SMALL* venue.
Move it somewhere smaller.
And let me mingle with the celebs - they need my perspective on things :)
182190, key club is actually a perfect size|
Posted by krayzeeboi38, Tue Jan-27-09 01:08 AM
not too big, not too small
182192, HOB would be ideal|
Posted by e_money, Tue Jan-27-09 02:39 AM
they dont have a show scheduled on 2/7
182207, double fail. el rey might be nice. bigger than a club, smaller than|
Posted by Natural Mystic, Wed Jan-28-09 01:38 AM
the average theatre.
182208, How aboot the newly renovated Conga Room?|
Posted by rons1ne, Wed Jan-28-09 02:57 AM
The old venue on Wilshire and La Brea was cool (caught a Common show and PPP show years back).
Haven't been to the new venue yet, but saw some pix on the web site.

Posted by Jeremywww, Wed Jan-28-09 11:40 AM
Isn't there usually some definitive news about this by now?
182211, Deep Economic Recession|
Posted by rons1ne, Wed Jan-28-09 02:35 PM
Or they're really waiting it out to give any news.
I hope they don't do something like two days before or day of stunt.
182213, We were not notified until the 8th on February last time|
Posted by handle, Wed Jan-28-09 04:07 PM
Althought I think they had a press release on Jan 24th (I can't find it right now.)
Posted by rons1ne, Wed Jan-28-09 05:16 PM
maybe thats why my hotel was in the G - H - E - T - T - O.
actually, i think we we sent requests on the 4th, didn't hear until the 7th.
Posted by handle, Wed Jan-28-09 06:16 PM
The Key Club shows Febraury 7th (the night before the Grammys0 as "INFO TBA."

182291, came to post about this and check-in|
Posted by JtothaI, Mon Feb-02-09 11:51 AM
182293, hopefully we find out in the couple of days...|
Posted by rons1ne, Mon Feb-02-09 12:29 PM

i think the first time they did it (with the 45's as the invitie) we didn't find out until the day before. and i lived in SF at the time!
anyhow, hopefully we find out soon. would like to meet up with some of the okp's again.

Ya every minute that goes by I get the feeling this may not be happening or maybe no fan invites this year. Hope I'm wrong...
182357, i dont think its happening at the ket club at least...|
Posted by rick, Wed Feb-04-09 01:18 PM

Posted by Jeremywww, Wed Feb-04-09 01:22 PM
I looked at House of Blues and it looks like nothing is scheduled there on Sat.
182365, just got off the phone with key club|
Posted by krayzeeboi38, Wed Feb-04-09 07:41 PM
they said that the roots grammy jam isn't happening at the key club because sponsors pulled out of the event. is there any truth to this?
182367, RE: just got off the phone with key club|
Posted by Jeremywww, Wed Feb-04-09 09:31 PM
That sucks. I am surprised there is no official word on this. Maybe they are scrambling for a venue.
182368, damn they gave you THAT much info? lol.|

182359, ima just go schedule time off on sunday just as a back up plan.|
Posted by Natural Mystic, Wed Feb-04-09 01:59 PM

182364, i like that confidence|
Posted by rick, Wed Feb-04-09 05:40 PM
if it ends up happening, and we both end up there, im buying you a drink
182366, it HAS to happen!|
Posted by krayzeeboi38, Wed Feb-04-09 07:42 PM
this is the last time the roots will be in the so cal area cause of the jimmy fallon gig. can't break tradition!
182372, Well, this is a late recommendation, but how aboot....|
Posted by rons1ne, Wed Feb-04-09 10:53 PM
a Secret Show?
a la early/mid 90's.
let us know where to pick up an invite, that'll direct us to another location, and that location will direct us to another location...etc, etc, until we find the venue.
Maybe some type of Urban Race, or something Juno-ish. Just a thought.
Anyhow, I'm still holding on hope that there will be a show.
182375, i feel you..|
Posted by aprila430, Thu Feb-05-09 12:33 AM
i wont be working on saturday and sunday as well. hope i can get an invite!
182376, has it always been at the key club?|

Posted by Luke Cage, Thu Feb-05-09 01:41 PM
That was the best thing about grammy week. Oh well. I guess I'll have to settle for seeing a bunch of half naked broke chicks trying to meet a star at some other wack events. This sucks.
