SN Fan Awards on Saturday night
It’s official. The SN Fan Awards show is moving to Saturday night. I’ve already hashed out most of what I have to say about all this in the original post. The bottom line on the move is, it’s worth a try, I guess (and Saturday night is smarter than a per-head showcase, which I stand by as the first draft of NQC’s brainstorming about all this). The Fan Awards show guarantees that at least several top groups will perform, and as for the rest of the line-up, the Saturday night mainstage schedule could certainly only improve after this year’s parade of pearls and swine. The best thing that could happen, I think, is that this change would tilt the center of energy back to the end of the week at NQC. Of course that depends on what the Friday night line-up looks like. Here’s hoping that Thursday becomes the new Saturday (one less night I need to book a hotel and pay too much money for crappy concessions fare at Freedom Hall) and Friday remains anchored by major acts.
I have no idea if the Fan Awards will keep people around and I suspect the people we need to hear from aren’t online that much (or if they are, certainly aren’t frequenting the likes of averyfineline.com). But, as I say, it’s worth a try. And if they could just bar the doors to the artist exit to the Exhibit Hall and figure how to keep the fire marshal from finding out, we might have a serious shot at a Saturday night at NQC that doesn’t feel like the soggy stump of a melted Erhlers ice-cream cone.Email this Post
