Hair Dyeing in a Hotel Makes Me Feel Like a Hitchcock Leading Lady

Our second performance on Saturday was stellar! For some reason it was a particularly somber show (which was especially strange given that our Friday show was a bit unhinged and jangly) leaving many of the audience members, and even most of the band members, in a contemplative state long after the show was done.  Unfortunately, my camera disagreed with the theater lighting so I didn't get any good band pictures...but I did get a nice shot of my foley table junk (below), and yes, that bell IS labeled "phone," and a pic of the well lit Mr. Brent Green on guitar & vocals!

Afterwards we loaded up and made it out to the closing party for the festival complete with delicious mini-cupcakes sparkling with multicolored sugar crystals and some of the best company one could imagine! I even watched as a friend of mine visiting from Austin blushed uncontrollably when she came to the realization that the man sitting next to her, Sam Green, was in fact the Sam Green who made The Weather Underground, a film that redefined the way she thought of documentary cinema! Being with friends and filmmakers, and all of the wonderful people who worked on this festival (too many to begin to name!) was a great end to the overwhelming feeling of love I have for Texas! Tomorrow I head to the eastcoast, as does Brent who had a brief detour over at the San Francisco International Animation Film Festival today for a screening of Gravity!
