Fire Show Listening Party (2007)
From listener Mike Gintz: "A while ago I posted pretty regularly on a messageboard and we got in the habit of doing "listening parties" every Friday, where one person would host it by picking an album and uploading it, and then whoever wanted to participate would all download it, press play at the same time, and listen together at the same time, in our various locations, typing to each other about what we were hearing. I found a lot of great stuff that way (John Cale, The Associates, etc) and I decided to bring the first Fire Show record to some people I knew would pay attention to it. It worked, and a few folks got into it, listened further, and ended up picking up a CD or two. Here's the thread in case you wanted to have a look and see what some complete strangers thought as they heard your music for the first time."
