WHAT IS THIS?
I am playing Bug Hunter's first album, Torn Between a Couple, live on Zoom in its entirety! This will take place on the 4-year anniversary of the album's release! I will play all 11 tracks in order, with intermittent stories about the writing and recording of the album in between.
Tickets are Pay-What-You-Want, so please respect your own budget here! I am HAPPY for anyone who doesn't have the extra cash laying around to hop on for free.
Even though tickets to this show are theoretically free, please don't share the link with anyone. I need to have an accurate attendance count so I can make sure my Zoom subscription will fit everyone. If you have friends or family who also want to attend, just have them come here and "purchase" a ticket for $0.
WHEN IS THIS?
This event will take place at 2 pm CST on Saturday, March 20. It will last approximately an hour, but maybe more!
DAY OF THE SHOW
We will be sending out the link to the show immediately after you order, and then again on the morning of the show. We will open the Zoom waiting room about 30 minutes before the published showtime. You can log in to the show anytime during that 30 minute, pre-show window. Once inside, feel free to chat with other fans or hang back and wait for the show to start (we do request that you keep your mics muted, and instead use the text-chat). If you arrive after the start of the show, we’ll wait until a break between songs to let you in. The show will start right on time, FYI, so don't be late.
VIDEO ON / VIDEO OFF
You don’t have to be on screen if you don’t want to, but it ends up being a lot more fun for everyone involved if you turn your video on. You can look at it this way: with your video off, it’s like watching from the last row seats of a stadium. With your video on, it’s like being on stage and hanging out with the band.
AUDIO STUFF / CHAT STUFF
Your mic-audio will be turned off while Bug is playing but can be turned back on for applause and between-song banter. HOWEVER, you’re welcome (and encouraged) to use the in-Zoom chat window as much as you’d like to tell jokes, ask questions or compliment people on their pets. No private messages please (We will have a moderator reading questions, so Bug won't see private messages during the show!). It’s way more fun if everyone in attendance can participate in the chat together.
Within Zoom, you have the option to view the show however you want. “Speaker View" will make Bug the only window visible on your end. "Gallery View" shows everyone’s window. Gallery View might not be a great way to watch since we’ll have up to 50 guests, the windows will be pretty small and you won’t get the full “Bug Hunter” experience. However, it can feel more like you’re hanging out with the other participants, which can be cool too.
Please be respectful of the show and other guests. Basically, act like you’re going to a show at someone’s house. Please don’t do weird stuff that might distract the performer or other guests during the show. If anyone does anything offensive, overtly distracting, or inappropriate, we’ll remove you from the show without a refund.
