Ran into this from a fellow Twit'r, a Crystal Bowersox Acoustic Christmas Concert Dec 5th. on Stage It. This is a new format for me, per their site:
On Stageit, artists perform live, online shows from their laptop that are never recorded or archived. That's right! Every Stageit show is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that's not to be missed.
Stageit allows both fans and artists to be part of the show. Fans are encouraged to ask the artist questions, request songs, and even chat with other fans during the show.
Stageit enables fans to support artists. Whether you're helping an artist finance their next album or contributing to the performer's favorite charity, Stageit artists actually get paid for their time.
Couple clicks later I'm registered on their site. Hey ... I'll keep you posted if I ever use the site... I have a meeting when Crystal is playing.
