I thought the rave scene died after the hillbilliy sons-of-the-soil inherited meth and subsequently wrecked their teeth.
Nope, while checking/deleting all of my facebook messages I noticed an angry screed from somebody who couldn’t find any help from his many facebook fans. I’ve changed his name to “Raver Dude” in an attempt to protect the innocent and hopelessly naive when it comes to marketing in the digital age.
First, let’s go easy on the guy. Event planning is quite tricky in Kansas City during this great recession.
Social media hasn’t made it any easier when it comes to realistically turning out a decent size crowd. Difficulty in bringing people out is exceptionally rough when it involves crappy electronic music and its mostly substance dependent fans.
Without any further ado, here’s the frustrated testament to Facebook event planning and marketing.
Depressing. If the digital age has not brought forth a Renaissance in house, trance and techno tunes then we really are headed down a road to nowhere.
Still, there is a bit of optimism. Realizing the error of his ways, our beloved “Raver Dude” makes a bit of an apology.
Now there is the spirit of Internet optimism that I adore.
Still, I think we’ve all learned a lesson. When planning a party, don’t think that your facebook friends are going to come through for you. Also, stop listening to music that peaked in the early 90’s.
