Confirm the date & time with the artist.
Create a Facebook/Evite.
- Include date/time, the artist's bio, photo, videos, links, anything relevant.
- Decide info: BYOB? Potluck? Will you provide any snacks?
- Include how the artist gets paid, e.g. "$20/pp at the door (all money goes to the musicians)" or "suggested donation $10-20/person."
Invite your friends! Not everyone will be able to attend, and there is usually a 20-30% no-show rate. Invite more people than you'd think. If you get a LOT of RSVPs right away, you can always tell people the event is currently sold out, but you're keeping a wait list.
Keep track of RSVPs. Private message anyone you think would particularly enjoy the event.
Follow up with invitees a few days before to get a headcount. Post videos or songs of the artist to give people a teaser.
Step 6 - DAY OF SHOW
Move large furniture out of your living room. Borrow folding chairs, or encourage people to camp out on the floor.
Enjoy the show!
