Step 1.
Confirm the date & time with the artist.

Step 2.
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."

Step 3.
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.

Step 4.
Keep track of RSVPs. Private message anyone you think would particularly enjoy the event. 

Step 5.
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. 

Step 7.
Enjoy the show!
