Superheroes, Statistics, Snapshots

tag evers ditty bops madison wi concert barrymore theaterThanks all for coming to the Ditty Bops show this Wed., even Wonder Woman made an appearance!

The bike valet proved to be a great success.  Over 25% of concert attendees rolled to the show on two wheels and cashed in on local restaurant discounts for doing so.  We think our fellow Madisonians are pretty damn cool.  We heard you loud and clear and will be thinking about more ways to create bike-friendly concert experiences.  Please feel free to comment on what helps or hinders your earth-friendly concert ways.

A very special thanks to Bike Fed, Dream Bikes, and the Barrymore Theater, all of whom pushed the vision in to reality.  We also deeply appreciate our sponsors who helped us spread the word: Willy St Co-op, Yellow Jersey, 105.5 Triple M FM, Isthmus, and 89.9 WORT.

Check out show preview by Scott Gordon at Decider Madison, or show review from Emily Mills at 77 Square.  Also, don’t forget to check back on Live Concert Photo Tuesday for lots of concert, valet, and audience shots.
