not all that many sites that can handle a 1,000 peeps

for advice, might try and find people in sci-fi fandom who do cons



amanda + brian might really get behind the first d.dolls convention

anyone want to estimate how many peeps?

...

might look @ richmond, washington, baltimore,
philly, new haven, and
providence too, from a cost standpoint

i cant imagine it exceeding 100 from across the ocean
but including US brigade/fans wanting to attend anywhere from 500-1000?
The National Theatre (here in sunny Richmond) accommodates up to 1500, and it has
remarkable artist amenities...  Same owners/management as the Norva...

Headliner Dressing Room (Second Floor)
    *   1 room with 10 person Jacuzzi hot tub
    *   1 sauna room
    *   1 dressing room with space for wardrobe cases with counters and mirrors
    *   2 showers-1 with steam
    *   1 large lounge with 42² flat screen TV, refrigerator, ice maker, microwave, coffee/tea maker, sink, storage cabinets, 3 sofas, 3 chairs, wifi

Rec Room (Second Floor)

    *   4 sofas, 4 chairs, 42² flat screen TV, 1 regulation size pool table, wifi
    *   shower with bathroom
    *   washer and dryer

Media Room/Alternate Production Office (Second Floor)

    *   60² flat screen TV, 4 sofas, 2 chairs, 1 table, phone line(s), wifi available
...among other goodies.

Of course, as someone mentioned above, and it's worth repeating, this whole discussion
is very much contingent upon a couple of individuals from whom we have had no comment...

a convention is very different than a concert.
richmond's national is supreb for the later,
but from what cgb posted, fails for the former

it might be possible to do a convention on
a college campus during the summer ...

anyone know any sure where rock and
contemporary popular music are studied academically?



anyone wants to suggest activities for a brigade/d.dolls convention?

it would be rad if a spiegeltent could be acquired. doubtful, but rad and appropriate. punk-cabaret-festival? revival of The Establishment?

the Dolls formed 31 Oct 2000 so 10 years of punk cabaret is definitely worthy of a celebration. I think it could/should/would all coincide, similar to Jason Webley's 11 year party with all the artists amanda and brian have collaborated with coming to celebrate them. That would be totally rad.

I know this is more brigade-centric, but t adding jusmy six dollars and seventy-two cents.

speigeltent(s) YES!

this sounds more like a rock music festival,
not a rock music convention

music venues would be part of a convention,
not all of it

note music festivals generally need 10,000s of fans to break even,
conventions can do so with 100s



a+b meet @ a halloween party in 2000

i've never seen anything reputable,
that said the party was on oct 31st

point me @ it?
the d.dolls wikipedia article needs it

I am pretty sure they met on the 30th but that Amanda likes to pretend it was on Halloween because it makes for a better story.

Anyway I remember we were talking about doing this last year but we were referring to it as a Shadowbox Convention.
I really like this idea and would be willing to help organize it.
About when to have it, the summer would mean far more students (like me) could make it, but airfares will be cheaper at the end of October.

We could have a gallery exhibition / art market sort of thing where the artists among us could sell some of their work.

"fall of 2000, that I met Brian on that fateful Halloween night." (page 19 of the companion)

I will look into the 30th/31st thing a bit more though. It's possible that the party was on the 30th and went past midnight, haha.

Alright, so we need to figure out what the convention would consist of aside from a Dresden Dolls concert.
Then we need to figure out roughly how many people would attend. 
This way we have a clear proposal of what the convention would be like when proposing the idea to Amanda and Brian.

Also do we want this to be a gathering just of people on the shadowbox or do we want it to be something for the entire fanbase?  The concert would probably have to be open to anyone, but for the non-concert stuff, is smaller better or is bigger better?

well obviously, all of the planning would take place on the shadowbox.

i was never a part of the brigade, so i'm only here to be excited and help however i can, but it would be cool if there could be a book created full of stories and memories of the brigade, only available to brigadiers, to be debuted at the show. it could be set up like a yearbook, and at the convention, you could get everyone to sign it!

more generally, something similar could be done for the whole shadowbox. a yearbook-ish thing with a history of the community, and then anyone with x number of posts gets added in automatically and everyone else by request. Donations could get bonuses, etc etc.

a celebration of the dresden dolls is a celebration of the community they created and all of the wonderful things that happened as a result. any events taking place at the convention would be open to anyone but there's no WAY that, even if nothing was specifically set aside to be "exclusive" to 'boxers or brigadiers, they wouldn't receive natural bonuses anyway. I'm sure so many people would be happy just to be a part of it.

Jesse hold the phone until I get a response from A+B/Dolls camp
no point getting over excited until we get some word.
I've contacted Beth with link to my thread and hopefully it will get back to Amanda.
