Bass Player Magazine's BP LIVE IN LOS ANGELES, CA: November 1+2!

Discussion in 'Social Events and Get Togethers [BG]' started by Jay Terrien, Sep 26, 2008.

  1. I just found out that Bass Player Magazine is holding their annual BP Live event on the West Coast this year in Los Angeles, CA!:

    I will be there saving souls and converting sinners. Who else is going to be there?

    Hope to see you in LA! :)

  2. I'll be there. I'm so glad they're having it in LA this time. I FINALLY get to go :hyper:

    I already received my tickets about 3 weeks ago :D

    yarghhhhhhhhh why do i have to be in la jolla?
  4. Why not just make the drive up? It's not that far from you. :)
  5. Anybody else going to go?
  6. We can't possibly be the only TBrs to be going to this. :confused:
  7. I was thinking about it... which is better to go to, the day event, or the concert at the Key Club?

    You better be! I will, too. Sunday.

    Stop by and say hi if you're there, bass dudes.
  11. I think I read somewhere that you can only buy concert tickets if you also buy a pass for at least one day of clinics.

    They have a schedule up now on the BPL page that shows who's doing clinics on each day.

    P.S. I'm going to both day events and the concert. I'm HARDCORE :D

    I decided to just purchase a 1-day ticket so I'll be there on the 1st to get 2 hours more for my money... I wanted to go to the concert but I snoozed and only purchased tickets last night and it's at $40 already (a day earlier than announced)... So x-nay on that.

    If you care to pm me your number, I would love to meet some if not all TB'ers that are going.
  13. I'll likely be going on the Saturday - and might come by the concert in the evening as well. I got a buddy who knows someone, who knows someone, who's sister dated the guitar player from the opening band for Aerosmith back in the 90's who might get me a pass. ;) We'll see if that pans out...

    The TB people should wear "pins" or something... but it looks like there will only be a few of us there. PM me later in the week if anyone wants to hook up at the event on Saturday, and I should know if I'm going.

    Yeah, I hear ya. BUt La will be cool I think. NY has its challenges. And DAMN its expensive. Im coming for 4 days this year and its gonna be way less than my reg 3 days in the city. Maybe we could get them to come to New Orleans next year. What a party would that turn into!!! Hey bassXgirl, do you have a myspace??
  20. Just got back from the event today. Skipping the concert tonight - I'm all "bassed" out! (It's not as bad as hearing 6 guitarists all playing at once in a room, but 6 bass players playing all at the same time at different booths, really starts to wear on you after a couple hours!)

    The event was really good - nice size - small enough to talk to the guys that make the stuff I buy (or want to buy). I wasn't overwhelmed by the size at all (well, except maybe by Markbass & Fender - they each had a large room filled with their stuff - never seen so many Markbass cabs & amps all in one space!). And b/c everyone was a bass player, it was very laid back. :)

    Notable performances by countless people I saw.... from 5-10' away. Crazy. Still a bit "star struck". Ok - going to eat some food... none available at the event!
