Last week, we threw a party and streamed it live on Facebook. The event went down at Lynx Music, the no longer secret musical sanctuary in Toronto’s Junction neighborhood. It was a fun and casual evening that attempted to mimic the old Much More Music, Intimate & Interactive television format. Hosted by Damien Sogren, who kicked it off at 9PM, the invitation only event was attended by fourteen VIP guests.
We got the idea for doing the event because Lynx Music has some super fast wifi. They also have this "Live Room" which is spacious enough to bring a few guests, and has great sound.
To do the stream we just set up an HD webcam and a regular microphone, but in future it would be possible to go direct, which means all the instruments are mic'd up individually.
Our stream reached just over 1,000 viewers throughout the night, so it was definitely a success for something that was really just a fun experiment.
