I've played a bunch of places in this town over the years. It was a tough choice, but I decided to go with Water Street Music Hall to host the CD/Video release. It's not the cost-effective choice, by any means, but it will do well for the size crowd I'm hoping for, the screen for the video, and they promot really well.
Danny Deutsch offered Abilene (Danny is the best, BTW), but I worry it's too small. Thought about Record Archive's funky stage and their vibe as Rochester icon but they were booked.
So, July 11th at WSMH it is! Much to do:
Determine set list - Figure out which songs from record will translate with current instrumentation.
Get keyboard player (hopefully the fab Meghan Koch).
Merchandise. Crap! Got to order! That means having all files from graphic designer.
Video. Have it in the right format for WSMH's projection system.
Kickstarter Backer door packets.
Media blitz!!!!!!!!! (Social and traditional) Hello, PR?
