    A mini one-day festival. I have no idea if ticket sales would be good but a members only fest would be rad. I’d fly to attend.

    Would love to see a Seattle version of the spins again. I'm aiming lower than everyone else!

    @mcherry That is a phenomenal idea. I think less a fest and more of a showcase would be very cool. With the right venue in the right city (cough*NYC*cough) the event could run from early evening until late and feature a bunch of artists on the bill. Elsewhere in Brooklyn is a cool facility and has room for visual artists and vendors, too

    To piggyback off of @mcherry idea, a mini one-day festival or event showcasing VMP Rising artists to celebrate the 2 years of supporting emerging artists

    I like @mcherry 's idea. I'd also like to see a presence at big music events like Lollapalooza since a lot of the acts there tend to issue exclusives through VMP. Tangentially related would be meet ups that mix VMP/community with the labels or even artists you have relationships with. I'd love to do a VMP Classics meet up in Memphis with a visit to the Stax museum or Chicago and a Chess museum.

    I've still never been to the Spins. The one here in SF would probably be hard to get to (or at least expensive... bridge toll/parking, BART or ferry, and possibly Uber) ... I guess I should go to one at some point

    Went to my first spins last night in Brooklyn. It was a nice spot, not too crowded. They apparently start right on time so I basically missed everything except for a DJ playing “anti-January” music.

    @green.bean Yes, East Bay... That would be much easier than making the trek over to SF.
