December 20, 2009 Live at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Without a set list prepared for his final show of the 2009 Festival of Light tour, Matisyahu engaged his entourage by asking them what they thought he should play. The backstage request of “Rastaman Chant” was a great song to start the show. Throughout the night Matisyahu took requests from the crowd, his band and from his twitter fan base. The show came together very organically.
Backstage at the Music hall of Williamsburg, Brett Siddell engaged with Matisyahu on the subject of story telling, twitter, and crowd surfing.
Meanwhile, outside in the cold Chilly S provides a behind the scenes look from the venue. You might recognize Kerel Roach from the MGCA event that took place last year @RShotel.
The Live broadcast of the December 20, 2009 show drew 100,000 + viewers on Ustream.tv. The ability to reach that many people via the internet is impressive to me. As we enter into a new year of technological advancements, we will harness the power of the Live Internet. Stay tuned for more Live events in 2010.

“Why do some ideas thrive while others die? And how do we improve the chances of worthy ideas? In Made to Stick, accomplished educators and idea collectors Chip and Dan Heath tackle head-on these vexing questions. Inside, the brothers Heath reveal the anatomy of ideas that “stick” and explain sure-fire methods for making ideas stickier, such as violating schemas, using the Velcro Theory of Memory, and creating “curiosity gaps.”—Made To Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die | by Chip and Dan Heath ::
