I would love to announce them all on the radio tomorrow night. If someone could gather them all into one neat organized document for me to read on the radio, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks!

Tom.

I just received word of listening parties on December 10 and December 17 at Opolis in Norman, OK [113 N. Crawford Avenue].

Some friends of mine played their last year. The Opolis folks are good people. Head out early and grab a bite at The Garage and/or head down Main Street to Guestroom Records [one of my favorite record stores!].

Nothing in New York?  That's kind of weak.

There is a gathering of FOT happening at Zeppelin Hall in Jersey City on December 14.
https://www.facebook.com/events/748042205221793/

There are threads here for people interested in finale listening parties in NYC, Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Austin, Victoria [British Columbia], Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, Seoul [South Korea] and Cleveland. I haven't seen any info about anything definitely happening in any of those cities though. I'll keep updating this list as I receive info about any finale listening parties.

No official bar event, but a few FOT are having a house gathering for the finale night here in Halifax, Nova Scotia!

NOW CONFIRMED:

Chapel Hill, NC Listening Party at Local 506. Doors at 8, Show at 9 (http://www.local506.com/ ... not up on the calendar, but address/venue info is all there)

Also, slightly less official group pizza party pre-show at 7, at Italian Pizzeria 3, right next door. It's a lovely little place with charming sporting mementos on the wall... really the kind of place that's right up Tom's alley.

I didn't get to listen live last night and going to work through the stream when I get some free time but did he mention the listening party locations?

He did not. There was a lot happening in the studio last night so I'm betting it slipped his mind.

There's a full list at the beginning of this thread. I also have a Google Doc that lists cities, times and locations along with links to their forum discussions and Facebook event pages.
