Who is ready for a little Duran Duran tonight? As you know, Duran Duran is playing in Miami Beach at the Faena Theatre! This is a special show for SiriusXM. As the press release on the band’s official website states, “This very special performance for SiriusXM coincides with 2017’s Art Basel in Miami Beach, the world-renowned premier art show and gathering for Modern and contemporary art.”
While I’m not sure how many Duran Duran fans are present there, many of us will be enjoying the live stream tonight on the Sirius channels, 1st Wave and SiriusPulse. The best part? One does not need to be a paid subscriber to Sirius. You simply need to go for a free 30 day trial, in order to be able to enjoy the show. Some of you might be wondering where and how you go about doing this. Start out by going to http://siriusxm.com/freetrial
Then, you just need to fill out your name, email address, etc. You don’t even need to provide a credit card! Once you get to Sirius, you can search from one of those channels and you are all set! The show starts at 8 pm EST with a pre-show with Lori Majewski and Richard Blade. Apparently, the show will also replay at 12 am EST, in case you had plans during the live show.
I know that Rhonda and I hoped to be able to listen and do some sort of Twitter party. Unfortunately, Rhonda is busy with an event for one of her kiddos and I’m drowning in grading. (For the record, I wonder why I assign papers?! Oh yeah…because writing is super important not just for the disciplines of History and Women’s Studies but also in life.) Nonetheless, we are disappointed that we couldn’t do more to celebrate this little event. I plan on tuning in but will not be able to focus as I would like. Instead, I’ll be forced to multi-task a bit. That means that my social media presence will be much less than what I would like.
That said, I would love, love, love for people who were lucky enough to be there to send their experiences to us in some way, shape or form. Tweet at us, email us, send us messages about the show. I would say the same for anyone who listens and/or participates on social media. I want to be able to blog about people’s reactions, thoughts, etc. as well as my own tomorrow. I know that I dn’tt want it just to be my thoughts about the show, especially since my attention will be split.
Until then, I’m off to get as much grading done as possible!
