MEETUP! 6/27-BALTIMORE / Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY

Recommended Posts

UPDATED: Meeting at 4:00pm at Houlihan's for late lunch/early dinner/long island iced teas. I need to get to the concert hall early at 6, but folks are welcome to arrive later & stay later since the doors open at 7.

Also, WEAR YOUR OCR SHIRTS! They won't let us sell shirts at the event but if you need one, let me know size/color in advance and I'll bring it for you, $10. We'll find a convenient back alley in Baltimore, and if you give me the cash, I'll give you the stuff, etc. It'll be just like HBO's The Wire.

Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY - June 27, BALTIMORE, MD, Doors open 7PM

Baltimore Symphony Orchestra conducted by Arnie Roth, Meyerhoff Symphony Hall

Tickets: $30-60 range

BSO/Distant Worlds ticket information

The BSO around the web

Alright, as far as I'm aware, this is Distant Worlds first trip to the MD/DC/VA area, so we've gotta represent!

We've got OC ReMix, MAGFest, Firaxis Games, Big Huge Games and the Gamer Symphony Orchestra all in the general area, so clearly we're gonna do a meetup of some kind.

The concert's gonna kick ass, AND both MAGFest and OC ReMix plan to be spreading the word to concert attendees in partnership with the BSO. So if you're in the area, please make sure you lock in your plans to attend the show with us!

I'm going to be on my way up to PA, and it's possible (though unlikely) that I may be able to convince the rest of the crew I'll be travelling with to stop for the night somewhere near baltimore, meaning I MIGHT be able to come to this.

Are we trying to order group tickets, or just meeting up before & after?

Either way, put me down as a definite. Also, I may be able to persuade a certain Mogu-ette to come along as well. ^.^

My friend Jimmy-Taru invited me to this a while ago, so I'm definitely going to be there. We haven't ordered tickets yet, so if people are doing group seating, let me know. Dunno if I could attent a meet beforehand, as me and some buddies got invited to go on a free tour of the Clipper City Beer Factory (with FREE BEER! :) )

Here's a suggestion: anyone want to do a Fell's Point/Canton/Federal Hill bar-hopping trip after the concert?

I'm in. How slightly reduced is the group rate?

Ok, if I can get a ride from Baltimore to Frederick after the concert (has to be that night, not the next morning), I might be able to come. Otherwise I can't make it.
I've got you covered for a ride if you need it.

Dangit, I thought this was July 27th when I first saw the Facebook notice. I'm gonna be out of the country on 6/27 so I can't make it; but if I could, I would've been there. It sounds awesome. KF

Awesome.

I'll need to look into train/bus schedules to get up there from Raleigh, but I'm probably in.

Brandon, would you be able to take one additional passenger? One of my older students may be interested in comming.

I'm actually in College Park, MD for an internship at the Goddard Space Flight Center, so I may be able to make it. The only thing is that on the 28th, as part of the internship, we are going to Sudbury, Ontario (Canada), so I may not be able to make this. However, living where I do, I've had been this close to one of these concerts. I am definitely considering just going and not caring if I'm tired the next day because this sounds awesome.

I'm tentative.

I have a late event Friday night, but I should be able to get my ass down there from Pittsburgh if I have the funds...

It'll be nice to see the MAGFest people (we're having an OCR meetup in Pittsburgh next month with VGL) since I can't do Otakon this year :???:

Okay, so Mogu-ette already has plans the evening of this, but I'm definitely 100% in.

Let me know if we're able to get a group of tickets.

Okay, so I'm not sure how quickly tickets are selling. I may just go buy them with my friend and we'll meet up a little before and definitely after the concert. I'd like to have mine ordered or at least organized in some way by the end of this weekend. So excited for this concert.

So Larry, what's up with the group buy? We gonna make it to 15, or should I just buy my own?

Echoing this request for info, as the date is now only two weeks away, and I see some seating sections are already sold out...

We could do the same thing with VGL where people PayPal'ed the OCR account with their ticket money, then we'd simply use that $ to buy the tix.

Who is going and has their $ ready now? Show of hands plz!
