Seacoast NH’s First Foursquare MeetUp Thursday at NHTweetUp SceneUp
That’s a lot of ups happening at The Music Hall on Thursday and from the looks of the folks already registered for the NHTweetUp SceneUp, it’s a not-to-be-missed Nor’easter of social media, tech, art and merriment converging in Portsmouth’s treasured theater.
Fusing art, good times and a touch of cutting-edge nerddom, the SceneUp (part of the Scene @ Five series) is part social mixer and part art happening. It marks the first time The Music Hall, NHTweetUp, and Portsmouth Foursquare team to host The Music Hall’s first TweetUp. It will also be the Seacoast area’s first Foursquare MeetUp where foursquare users can connect face to face.
Scene @ Five organizers Christine Major, Jason Boucher and Monte Bohanan are looking forward to this series as a chance to get close and personal with art and art makers, bringing them down from the stage or the big screen and into the intimacy of a cocktail lounge. Walter Elly and I are also psyched that Portsmouth Foursquare could be part of it!
Scene @ Five is scheduled 5 – 7 p.m., once each month at The Music Hall. There is a $2 cover charge but Music Hall members get in free. Following a two-hour cocktail session, The Music Hall will get us ready this week for Thanksgiving travel and invasive body scans with John Candy/Steve Martin classic “Plains Trains and Automobiles” screened in the theater.
Fittingly, the inaugural Scene @ Five artist is photographer and founder of TheDailyPortsmouth.com Philip Case Cohen. Scene @ Five patrons will get the opportunity to see hundreds of Phil’s photos. Truly distinctive, his work brings a bright and sensitive eye to documenting Portsmouth and New England.
“By partnering with NHTweetUp and Portsmouth Foursquare we’re able to bring in a whole new audience to The Music Hall,” said Monte Bohanan, Electronic & New Technology Manager at The Music Hall. “By connecting the event with social media technologies like Twitter and foursquare, we’ve created a unique opportunity for the online community to meet and to mix with the offline community too.”
NHTweetUp, a Twitter meetup group, was created to gather people together offline to network and strengthen online connections. NHTweetUp also reports about events, meetings and TweetUps in and around the local New England area.
“NHTweetUp’s been growing since early 2008 and we’re excited to be partnering with a venue as prestigious as The Music Hall,” said Christine Major, founder of NHTweetUp. “As NHTweetUp was created to connect the online community together offline it’s only natural that this event centers around a great local artist whose subject matter is of the city itself where the event will be taking place.”
