through the whole thing again it will have to put me in some sort of a facility to break the habit of caffeine good god what happens is I get bored I think I feel I feel drag down a little bit this is this is how I got back on it will get to Chris Porter in a second this is how I got back on the caffeine wagon I said to myself I just get a decaf coffee I think there's a little caffeine in it and this the habit it's not just the caffeine is the root ritual in our next time I sent you know can you put just a little bit of a little bit of caffeine and you know like one tenth just splash it's a slippery slope up now to pound in the diet cokes again I am a loser all right you you want to talk about some more fun to do the owner of portable directions is just happens to be named Chris Porter and he's put together a thing called the town and the city festival in Lowell Massachusetts please welcome to the program Chris Porter hi Chris I Bradley all right great now you've been you've been around you've been in show business show business for a long time you were early Boston Booker the Middle East center how early what when did you start nineteen ninety as far as booking venues and I bet you'll remember the bit you bundle wrapped that was my humble start back in nineteen ninety I mean prior to that I babble about I mean I've been I've been in the music industry in one form or another for over thirty years but the bulk of that was booking shows being promoter being talent buyer per day Lombok think about seven years I also worked it bonded can use a call the short lived Aerosmith own venture I'm John this is good for me because I can try to conserve the put everything together again what were the years that mom again was a thing that was a thing from ninety five to ninety nine give or take couple months to about four years of IT I was there the first two years of that before I went out to Seattle for a while yes any he booked this bumper shoot show about the book booking shows tough tough work I mean the if you mess up it's very expensive what is it what is the hardest part of what you do is but Bakir the Booker part of your job well if I need to put it is far as you know being a a on a festival situation in the coming out big and and then bishop stuck up to live by I like you that June juggling and putting a jigsaw puzzle together all the same time the year you know juggling a lot of different ideas and agendas depending on what the the the other theme aren't all the goals of the festival are are trying to work within a budget sometimes I have some budgets of some events I work on my work and I'm a big one in San Francisco that had many times more of a budget then the pound of city festival has cell where you try to work that out and and also logistics and the other bands that bailable and interested in playing your offense I'm all out of it pitch to me which is nice night problem have been there some but I want them now and is trying to work all of that I would be giving your and then you can't work it out in one year well then maybe you can the next time but you gotta wait a whole other year also with a new festival this is more of a production well now but if this is the second year of the town the city festival and you know we learned a lot after the first year of that and the only thing about a full business it's not like a restaurant where okay you need to adjust your business well you can expect the following week million the customer you gotta wait a whole year before you know a few new ideas going to work or not so that's a little weird a little awkward at times but I love it it to me putting a puzzle together is a part of a good one one that I had to work on one that a very eclectic buckled bumper shoot at that and me I had prior to that I you're the stockyard booking then use that I like that but then I would really love it filling a calendar your morning about how bar did and everything is possible it's it's it's much more creative could sued I think a memorable one for her the patron and you can be a lot more experimental this is your baby you this the town in the city festival this is your baby you do I take all the risk you make all the money is that correct well we are good too yeah more or less yeah I mean I have some you know by the convention and visitors bureau at their great Merrimack valley or they helped me out a lot with that and then we have some sponsors yes it's it's in it in a nutshell the agree answer the question yeah yeah on my shoulders and I came up with the idea of the whole concept it's something I've been very compelled to make so you're right it's on me so you have to find partners like maybe the town if you work with the town itself anywhere because sponsors as you may as you mentioned and if there is a lot yeah I mean in the return of the reach of how this started so is your point out I work on the Bumbershoot festival in Seattle many years about eighteen years and then I I left that the just started concentrating on my own company and I do tell buying it could be seeing it your rating for yeah I've been in various cities around the country but I I'm from Lowell that's my hometown and it all started with a conversation actually with someone from the city getting bills the merits with the time of the city councilor now we may share any sort of knew what I worked on and and you hold them on quite a focus of economic development about bringing more advanced artistically art and music and entertainment that type of things there and we just thinking from casual conversation back in twenty fifteen about what you know it was something I could bring to the city and then I told my what I do acceptable particularly Merrick come up with the concept and it took a little while to work it out for variety but you know it's sort of it's moderate it's modeled after I type of festival that I called venue hopping experience and there are a lot of cities and smaller cities particularly that they do the sort of thing the mini van Daddy about all of those south by south Austin Texas and that one though we are normal and it's the very industry cut as they've been saying it because it's a global on with that but there are some other ones that that happen there's one called to report news acceptable in Boise Idaho one of my big years festival in Knoxville Tennessee and another one collides with their weight thank you Vic Eiffel and that have been very big rations to me where they're all eclectic there there there's a new all in walking distance before it found the city utilizes eleven venues over two days now the quarter mile radius walking distance and everything from little you know eighty eighty after the art gallery to what extent the capacities church to opt for the compact Glock room you know it's really very and I started happening in other cities and I thought well why not wall a guy coming in some way global more attractive because it's history it's quite nice downtown downtown at the end of the day a lot over the last dozen or so years it's it's a very acceptable city from the transportation standpoint as far as roadways and trains and all it's right smack in the middle of the legal and and then also at the same time it's near a major Boston so is the acceptability of it and I think the time with the attitude of wall sayings and and being more vibrant and growing it just seemed like a really good time to do something like that so let's take a break and then we'll actually go into detail about your festival the town and the city you can really you can see tell me the names the venues is going to be there you can go to all kinds of details sponsors the whole thing at its WBZ Boston's newsradio Jane talk
