Meet-ups: Darren Criss @ The Garage, July 6th

Darren Criss gigs on July 6th! YAY!

I've thrown together some info, so we have a place to start working things out. Suggestions are more than welcome!


General questions:

- Who is coming and when?
- When do people want to meet and where? (Depending on the time, it might be good to meet somewhat close to the venue for the 4.30pm people.)
- When do you guys want to start queuing?

WHEN? 1pm.
WHERE? Amici Coffee Deli.

The Plan thus far in all its detailed glory!

Gig info:

Mat: doors 4.30pm // show 5.30pm
Eve: doors 8.00pm // show 9.00pm

Venue website // How to get there // Local info


I've compiled a provisional list of people who've expressed interest in meeting up over at the meet-up post for the July 6th gigs. Please let me know if you're still interested and if I've got your gig info correct.

[ profile] nixied
[ profile] pinkfinity (eve)

And everyone who's not yet on the list, just leave a comment and introduce yourself. Aside from that, discuss, go crazy. The works ;)

It would be good to have the following info for everyone:

- What's your name? (I keep thinking in lj names atm. Which is quite amusing.)
- When are you arriving in London? When would you be joining us?
- Are you coming alone or are you bringing people with you?
- Which show are you going to?
- Anything else you wanna tell us (e.g. where are you staying?)
- Also, do you guys wanna swap cell numbers just in case? (via PM/email)

My info:

My name is Stefanie. I'm flying over from Germany on July 6th and I will be arriving at Gatwick around 9.30am, probably taking the train into London around 10.30am (cheapest option atm) and arriving at Victoria around 11am. I'm usually staying at a hotel near Euston (2 tube stops away from the Garage on the Victoria line), but if anyone needs a roommate (or has a cheap-but-decent hostel suggestion), I'd be up for that, too. Depending on where we wanna meet, I'm gonna go and say around 1pm would be good for me. My flight home leaves on Thu around 6pm, so if anyone wants to hang out on Thu, I'd be up for that, too.

Okay, that's all I've got for now. So... discuss!

TOMORROW Y'ALL!!! (The Plan thus far!)

[identity profile] 2011-06-03 03:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I like this post. Okay, so..

I'm Natalie. I'm from England but I live in Scotland and I'm going to travel to London via sleeper Train (11+ hours!). :) I'll be at Euston train station pretty early in the morning! I can meet up anytime anybody wants because I'm going to be by myself/really bored! :) I'm going to the 4:30 show. Then after that I'm going back to the train station and going home. That's pretty much it.. but it's obviously all subject to change.

Also, I know this is random but does anyone else feel the need to go to Kings Cross and do this??? Pft, I do.

Also, shall I PM you my mobile number?

[identity profile] 2011-06-04 10:28 am (UTC)(link)
Hi there! I've added you to the list :)

11+ hrs! That is one hell of a trip indeed!

RE Platform 9 3/4... I've actually done that a couple of years ago! (I may even have pictures to prove it. lol)

And yes, do PM me your mobile number :)

[identity profile] 2011-06-03 04:05 pm (UTC)(link)

- When are you arriving in London? When would you be joining us?
I'll arrive on 5th, coming from Dublin (Glee Live! YAY!).

Not sure yet. I may bring 1 friend.

- Which show are you going to?
One show on the 5th (not sure which one yet XD) and both shows on the 6th.

- Anything else you wanna tell us (e.g. where are you staying?)
Also dunno yet, will book as soon as I figure out stuff with my visa.

er... I don't feel like posting it here, but yeah. Just send me a message or something and I'll post in private.

[identity profile] 2011-06-04 10:43 am (UTC)(link)
More people doing both shows on the 6th! Yay! Added you to the list :)

- What's your name?
Dunno why, but not comfortable writing my name online. But you can call me Alex for now. (I am a girl tho haha)
- When are you arriving in London? When would you be joining us?
On the 5th - leaving on the 8th. I think pretty much all of the 6th will be free for me. I think meeting at 12-ish sounds great. I don't know how much I can stay with you guys after the eveninf concert as I am staying with family and it depends on their "curfew" for me - like.. I don't wanna wake up the house at 2 am lol)
- Are you coming alone or are you bringing people with you?
Coming alone, staying with family.
- Which show are you going to?
- Also, do you guys wanna swap cell numbers just in case? (via PM/email)
Sure! Send me yours?

[identity profile] 2011-06-04 12:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Going with Alex then :)

I could do 12-ish, I think - depending on where we decide to meet. It's probably the earliest I can do, though, since I'm most likely not getting into town until 11am. And then I'll have to drop stuff off at the hotel first.

RE cell number - Gonna PM you in a sec.

Sort of late to this but okay...I'm 22 (so I'm kinda scared of hysterical 15 year olds at the venue, but let's be honest, I'm probably gonna end up being worse...) and flying in from Oslo, but I'm visiting family so probably just gonna grab the train into London on the morning of the 6th and have a mooch around Topshop etc...
Planning on just the evening show, but I've got a ticket to the matinee as well and if enough people are doing a double-feature I might be convinced;)

[identity profile] 2011-06-04 10:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Also, I'll PM my number, but I'm in the middle of switching numbers/phones at the moment so it might take a few days!

Alas, I have had to give up my ticket to the 6th mat, as I have been informed that small children are invading my place of work and I have to teach them about microscopes, so my boss doesn't want to give me the day off. And no one will tell me when it finishes so I'm likely going to be screaming at them when the doors open for the gig instead of queueing like I should be... It's probably for the best, I'm going on the 5th anyway.

But if I manage to wrangle away in time I'd love to me you guys. I work only a couple of stops away, so could meet people going to the eve performance for a natter, or possibly during a long lunch (knowing my temperment around children, I'll need one).

[identity profile] 2011-06-05 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Oooh please try! The more the merrier etc...Plus I really want to meet the angel that managed to get me a ticket to the evening show;)

I have this nightmare vision of Joey Richter flying out just for the matinee show and then leaving before the evening one and leaving me crying into a gin & tonic consisting mainly of crushed dreams and hopes...

Just to be on the safe side I'm gonna have to go to both shows me thinks!
Which means SIGN ME UP FOR BOTH!

I'll pm you my cellphone just in case

Brilliant! Hi! Added your info to the list.

Seems like meeting around lunch is gonna work out for most people :)

[identity profile] 2011-06-06 10:04 am (UTC)(link)
Hi, My name is Lis, I am arriving in London on 5th for the meet up then (didn't get a ticket for the Borderline show so will just be there meeting and chatting to those on that day) I can meet up with people anytime on the 6th as I will be in London anyway.

I am coming all by myself :-) and I'm going to the evening show!

I am staying in a B&B between Euston and Russell Square. And I will PM you my mobile number :-)

I will be in London all day Thursday so am more than willing to hang around and giggle insanely with others who will still be hyper from the night before ;-)

[identity profile] 2011-06-06 11:28 am (UTC)(link)
Awesome! Added your info to the list.

I'm all for hanging out on Thu and giggling insanely! (The occasion basically requires it ;)

Also, I'm staying in the same area as you :)

I'm just gonna throw this out here. I'm an artist, so obviously I have a sketchbook I take everywhere, I was looking through it today and there's alot of darren/starkid sketches. I was thinking I might copy them and try and give them to him as a little gift or something... BUT is that too weird? Because, in my head, it sounds a bit odd.. :/

PS. I got my train tickets today! I'm gonna be in London at 10am! :D

Crybaby copy paste first: Hi guys!
I'm from Argentina but after a year's planning and lots of saving I'm in Europe visiting family and will be in London during the first days of July for the HP premiere. I'm meeting up with an online friend I met through HP and we'd love to go see Darren live.

I doubt I'll ever get another chance to see him live so if you know where I could get two tickets to his show, no matter which date, I'd love you forever and write you fic.

Someone posted info today about having one, but I don't want to take that one if there's a possibility I can get one for my friend, too.


- What's your name? (I keep thinking in lj names atm. Which is quite amusing.) Jana
- When are you arriving in London? When would you be joining us? I'm in Spain right now so it's ucnertain. Most probably last days of June/first days of July
- Are you coming alone or are you bringing people with you? Depending on what I get, my Londoner friend will join us.
- Which show are you going to? ANYONE I CAN GET
- Anything else you wanna tell us (e.g. where are you staying?) Uhm, I haven't booked a hostel yet, but I'd love recs! Also, I'd love it if you guys wanted to grab a bite after the show and then go straight to the red carpet to wait for the HP premiere.

Even if I don't get tix I'd lvoe to meet up and be with a large group while we wait for the premiere


[identity profile] 2011-06-10 08:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey Jana! I can't help you regarding tickets, but you're welcome to join us :)

Atm, it looks like we'll be meeting up for lunch at Amici Coffee Deli ( around 1pm-ish. Most people will be going to both gigs or the mat one, so we'll probably all be pretty jazzed about queueing already.

Regarding the food situation in between gigs/after the second gig... Well, we haven't decided that, yet. At some point we'll hopefully eat, though ;)

Re hostel recs - I've never actually stayed at a hostel in London, so I'm not much help, but I've been told that Piccadilly Backpackers ( is quite okay and a friend of mine is trying out Clink hostels (, so that might be okay, too.

Aaanyway, I'll put you down as a "maybe" for the moment. Let me know how the ticket situation &c goes :)

Don't think I ever filled this so here you go

- What's your name?
Minna (you can call me Mins)

- When are you arriving in London? When would you be joining us?
I'll be arriving at KingX at about 11am on the 5th ... not sure about the plans for the 6th yet but whatever everyone else is doing if there's a meet up sounds good to me

- Are you coming alone or are you bringing people with you?
By myself for the 6th show though meeting my friend afterwards as we're camping for HP

- Which show are you going to?
evening show on 5th and evening show on 6th

- Anything else you wanna tell us (e.g. where are you staying?)
my plans are still rather open, going to the pm show on the 5th with a friend but would still be nice to meet up with LJ and UK street team people, then it's just me on the 6th so again meet ups is the plan, then I'm heading to Trafalgar Sq and camping out for HP

- Also, do you guys wanna swap cell numbers just in case?
yep would be useful...shall pm it to you

[identity profile] 2011-06-17 08:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Awesome! Hi :) Added your info.

The plan so far basically involves meeting up for lunch at Amici Coffee Deli ( around 12pm/1pm-ish on Wed and then go from there.

Also, HP premiere! *sighs* I've got some major Potter nostalgia going on at the moment. I really don't want it to be over (but I'm still really really excited for the final movie).

[identity profile] 2011-06-24 01:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Awesome! Hey there :D Added your info to the list.

The current plan is to meet up for lunch at Amici Coffee Deli ( around 1pm. I'll probably put the 1pm thing up for a final vote, but that's the time we first agreed on when we started planning, so it's probably gonna be 1pm. (Anyway, that's the time around which I'll be showing up.)

Re PM/cell number - That would be me :)

[identity profile] 2011-06-24 01:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Everyone, I'll be off to London on Sunday for Glee Live, so I might poke around the Highbury&Islington area for a bit on Monday and see whether we're all gonna fit into that deli.

As I said above, is everyone okay with the meet-up time being around 1pm? I might be able to show up a bit earlier if EasyJet and London's public transport let me. If not, I'll most likely be there around 1pm :)


This has nothing to do with any of the above, but I was re-watching "Blame It on the Alcohol" earlier and I love that episode. Just wanted to mention it. And that is all.

We need some way to recognize each other? While screaming YOU MOVE ME KURT would be super fun, I think it'd be akward for the rest of the people in the cafe.
Any ideas?
Also, IMO we should not stay there forever... just have it as our meeting place, get aquainted over some coffee and then head over to the queue... maybe grab some take out on the way.
Those of us that are doing both concerts... i doubt well have time to consume anything between the concerts!

Also, those that are only going for the evening show... are you meeting with us at AMICI DELI CAFE?? Can we have a roll call?? (i.e post your name if you are going in the evening and for sure are going to meet us at 1pm at AMICI COFFEE DELI.

OMG I JUST SAW THE SOLD OUT SIGN-pic in the main post and did a little flaily dance :D

[identity profile] 2011-06-30 08:06 am (UTC)(link)
I must have looked like a really bad spy or something when taking that picture! Or at least it felt like I was behaving like one!

I doubt any of the people at the bus stop who (I thought) were looking at me funny actually made the connection between the t-shirt I was wearing (the BTW "Can't Sing" shirt) and the reason why I was taking that picture. But I since I was basically going all flaily dance on the inside, I felt like I was being really obvious. lol


[identity profile] 2011-06-29 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm backkkkk. XD OMG! ONE WEEK! *is freaking out*

I don't have any pink items.. because I am THAT bland... and surely every 2nd DCriss fan will have the pink sunglasses (right?).. won't that be even more confusing?? Orrr maybe that's just me? :P

I might just wear a SUPER notciable t-shirt like my 80's-esque 'CHOOSE LIFE' one because you cannot miss that bad boy.. you just CAN'T. :D

I'm also in support of the not lingering in the deli idea because, as previously discussed, tall people obscuring DCriss is not fun.

Maybe we need to invent a sticker or a badge or something *lame idea is LAME* but at least we'd all have the same and it'd maybe help???

haha I LOVE the code sentence. I'd never have the balls to just SAY it to someone, though. My shyness wouldn't allow it.. but IMAGINING it is PRICELESS. You're all wonderful. Ahhhh. :P

[identity profile] 2011-06-29 03:49 pm (UTC)(link)
LOL yeah I'm way to shy for that, but if it's like "Sorry, I'm new here" I might be able to get away with it!
And also, I think the weather supposed to be pretty good so I'd rather just wait in line and chat...that being said, I'm a tall drink of water (5'10) so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to see the stage either way;)

Anyone still around that day and up for a 2nd meet-up? Aside from the people camping out for the HP premiere, I mean, because you guys will most likely be hanging out amidst the crowds ;)

I'll be in town until around 3pm and will probably head over to Trafalgar Square in the morning/around noon just to check out the masses and have a look at the decorations &c
