Luckily the people in InWinter were monstrously cool and were tolerant of the bizarre things I do when I get bored. I found a little glowing raver stick and discovered that it fit perfectly in a straw. And then I found I could shoot the damn thing across the club with fairly decent accuracy. That kept me entertained for a few minutes! Then I started hawking In Winter CDs at the top of my lungs. The band next to us started a hawk-off which I won soundly. Then I got chastised by a security guard from India when I started claiming that we would donate 1% of the proceed to Tsunami Victims. Turns out his family was in the Tsunami. I felt small.
Ventana was headlining and they nobody could use the club's intelligent lights. Good thing I brought my own! In Winter took the stage in a cloud of fog with swirling lights and strobing goodness. We only had 10 minutes to set everything up, so the laser didn't work. Bummer - that would have been cool.
Have a Happy New Year.
