Nick: That is awesome! And I can't believe that bar had "Alright With Me" in their jukebox! Did the owner happen to mention where he already had tickets to the show? I hope Elle was able to talk with the owner as well about getting an "after-show party" thing going there after the Valpo gig. It would definitely be great if we returned the favor by making sure people stop by Franklin House after the show.
Great job! Others can definitely use this as a guideline for future promo. And make sure to thank Jill's friend for us for helping out :)
Wow - that's great promo!! Nice job, guys! :) What I like most about the fliers is that they advertise Kris as "the guy who sings LLWD" and not as "the 2009 American Idol." Yay!
Great job, Nick!
(And just want to say that adding LLWD to the flyer was my idea, lol.)
Hi all, It's Jennie from Valpo. Glad to finally be here where all the excitement is about Kris. My daughter Jenna and I are looking forward to having the group in town for the show this weekend. As Nick mentioned yesterday we plastered the neighborhood with KA concert posters like the one attached (if i even attached it??) and have a few more to do. Hopefully we'll have a good turnout at the concert. Of course there's more fun to be had after the show too. As you heard we are working on a fan after party at a local establishment. Franklin House is the oldest pub in the area and the owner has been very receptive to helping us out anyway he can. His goal is to make our visit a success and he would be really happy if Kris or the band was able to attend. He has signs and mini flyers for the show and already has KA on the jukebox like Nick said....the bar owner told me his music was there but Nick and I had to see for ourselves...i think we did a little happy dance when we saw ALL his singles there. So, the details for the afterparty are forthcoming as I am waiting to hear form their promotions manager but it will include some discount for us at the bar. It will also be karaoke night so be ready to sing (sorry have to add this too.............they even have AL on the jukebox). I will post the details after they are finalized with Elle and/or Nick, myself and Franklin House.
I finally rec'd a response from the UPC dept at VU who is hosting the show. See below, I think we will have to keep the after party on the DL. I am expecting to have flyers form the bar to hand out to concert goers but out of respect for the venue we will have to be discreet about this and obviously they are not going to facilitate our efforts to notify Kris and the band of the party so we will have to slip them a flyer ourselves.

Re: Kris Allen Show
We appreciate all of the energy you are putting in to make this a great show for Kris. We are excited to have him here and think it will be a great time!
For publicity, we are definitely trying to hit up everywhere we can. Thanks for checking that out and helping us promote this show in as many places as possible.
In terms of the after party, we will be unable to encourage him to attend local bars. Because of our dry campus policy and our Lutheran affiliation, we cannot promote stars hanging out with students while drinking alcohol. We hope that you can understand. You are welcome to contact him yourself to ask but we cannot have any 'official' part of his after show choices.
Thanks again for helping to make this a great show. Please let us know if you have any other questions...
