The Blubrry Team had an incredible, educational andÂ inspirational long weekend, Oct. 14-18,Â at the Blogworld and New Media Expo. And not just the kind of inspiration you see in the photo below,Â rather we gave and received valuable insights about the Blubrry PowerPress, podcasting progress and the people in our communities. Â WeÂ were able to meetÂ some great people, catch up with friends and spread the word to bloggers and podcasters that blogging louder through RawVoice and Blubrry is more than just an option, it’s the option.
True, socially our highlight of the weekend wasÂ the Blubrry Vegas After Party at the famous Peppermill Fireside Lounge Friday night, Oct. 16. The strolling magician, DJ’s tunes, showgirlsÂ and of course Little Elvis set the toneÂ and pushed the kitsch over the top atÂ the Peppermill. Yeah, we can honestly say this was our best party yetÂ — because you told us so.
Thanks to everyone whoÂ attended and made the event such a success! A special thanks to our organizers, Aileen Kenny and Mat Luschek.Â We hope they’reÂ not busy next year. Even more importantly, we look forward to seeing you there next year!
Today marks the official end date of the Blubrry Jam To Fight Cystic Fibrosis charitable campaign.
I want to thank everyone who donated. You can see a list of individuals who gave here at the bottom of the page. I also want to thank those who attended the live show and bought Brother Love’s music from Amie Street. Every little bit helps.
And to top it off we raffled an Apple TV at the end of the night. The night crawlers moved on to Tribeca Tavern just a few doors down to continue the party. From the looks of it everyone was having a real good time.
Thank you to everyone who helped out, showed up or gave some kind of support to this event.
How would you like one of these? We’re adding a last minute bonus to our Blubrry Jam live event featuring Brother Love releasing his brand new CD.
We are going to raffle off an Apple TV unit at the end of the night at 10:45PM. The lucky winner must be present to get the prize. We’ll take that person’s home address and get them shipped the console after the show.
So for $20 at the door you get:
* A Brother Love CD
* A Blue ‘Fight Cystic Fibrosis’ Wristband
* Performances by two great bands.
* A chance to win an Apple TV unit.
And you’re helping out a great charity in the Boomer Esiason Foundation. It’s a win – win – win situation if there ever was one.
(Assuming you’re already in New York City of course.)
1. Hop in a cab and say, “285 West Broadway at Canal Street please.” (Don’t forget the please.)
2. Go To http://www.hopstop.com/?city=newyork and type in 285 West Broadway in the “Destination Address” box. (You’ll have to know where you are to come up with the info for the “Starting Address” box.)
3. Use this handy map we created if you’re coming from the PodCamp NYC party at Slate.
I really can’t believe this date has snuck up on us so fast. Podcamp NYC is kicking off tomorrow at 6PM over at Slate. I hear that Brother Love will be there tomorrow night pressing the flesh and hanging with the folks who’ve really made a difference in his indie music career.
Saturday will surely be a day of podcasting intensity. Jeevan and Jeff will be there talking to folks about Blubrry and participating in the sessions. Be sure to stop by and say hello. Pick up a promo card for the Brother Love CD release / Blubrry Jam benefit show. Speaking of the show!
We’re five days out from this very exciting event. We’ve got Brother Love unleashing some great new songs live on stage. We’ve got special pre-release CDs going to all those who come down to the show. Plus you’ll get a light blue bracelet to signify your solidarity in the fight against cystic fibrosis.
