Finally, a moment to update livejournal.
Hoover's Blanket performed on Friday at Frontera Fest.
Holy God in Heaven it could not have gone better. The audience just HOWLED with laughter throughout the performance. I knew it was going to be a good show when they laughed at me saying "This is All Things Considered." Everything landed. It was especially gratifying to hear people laugh at lines I wrote and helped write. I wish I'd found the time to post this the night of the performance, because words escape me now.
But it was seriously one of the most satisfying performances of my life and I'm proud to have been a part of it.
A little later that night we got the call that we had been picked for the "Best of the Week" and we got to perform again on Saturday night. The Saturday audience did not like us as much, but who cares. Friday was simply amazing.
Oh, and to top it off, after rehearsal for Parallelogramophonograph tonight, a random girl recognized Kareem, Wes and me from the Friday show and told us how much she liked it.

We're doing it again at the Hideout on February the 10th. So come see it.
