So I was chatting via email with Tom from distilled and we decided it might be fun to organise a night where a bunch of SEOs and other digital types get together. However, rather than just standing round talking about 301 redirects and making robots.txt jokes* (“so the actress said, didn’t you see that I disallowed that section?”), we’d get some SEOs/digital marketers who like to play records to provide musical entertainment.
I’ve already put some tentative feelers out on Twitter and have had a pretty positive response. Already, if people mean what they say, I’ve got 5 DJs, which would probably be enough for the first night. So what I guess I need to know now is whether people would be interested in coming along to the night (if it goes well, we could try to make it a semi-regular event). It’s likely to be in a bar in Central London (quite possibly Soho) and, I guess, on a Thursday night.
I’d hope that it would be free to get in (though there might be a small charge if we have to pay to hire it) and it’s likely to be a BOOB night (buy our own booze). What’s for sure is that it wouldn’t be worth doing if people aren’t interested. Whilst I can’t guarantee what people might play, I’d guess it would be a mix of funk, soul, maybe a bit of hip-hop and probably a drop of house.
So, what do you think? Fancy seeing if geeks can dance? Leave a comment so I can gauge interest.
PS – I do mean play records by the way. For a digital person, I’m also a massive luddite!
*I love nights like that as well by the way.
