Opus Dei 1... Opus Fantasy Arts Festival, NOT Opus Dei from The DaVinci Code

Ah. The first day of Opus Fantasy Arts Festival is over. The festival is awesome! If you're in the Denver area, what are you waiting for? Come join us!

I was hoping to write something about it late last night after our show, but we ran into a little snag--time change. We've been on three different time zones on this trip. So when we played an 11:30pm gig last night, it was 1:30am EST. So we were a touch tired. No doubt the altitude didn't help matters, but the show went. Great!

We asked the audience if they wanted to hear our new "Jedi Drinking Song Prequel" and we had an overwhelming response. Aside from fumbling a few lyrics, it seemed to go over Really well. I finally talked Andrew into playing it live for the first time at O'Malley's Irish Pub in Missouri, but it still needs some work. When we get back to Austin, we will practice that one a lot, maybe even add it to one of our podcasts... We'll see...

Otherwise, the festival is awesome! The hotel is better than ever. It's a beautiful layout. Our booth is attracting more and more traffic and we're making new fans as usual. Rion and Sage, who run the festival, man, they've outdone themselves. I'm so impressed.

Oh! And there's a Feast tonight with a list of food that sounds deadly delicious! I need to remember to buy some tickets if they aren't already sold out.

The next big step is to convincing Rion to do a podcasting panel next year. We need to build up the whole podcasting phenomena. Because I tell you I LOVE doing podcast

Well, there's a show in another hour. So I need to get downstairs and help sell some CDs before Andrew gets snippy (as if he EVER is snippy, it's disgusting...;)

Oh! Last, I heard an Official confirmation from Voltaire about his gig at Elysium in Austin next month. There were a few particulars that needed working out and they are done. So now I can watch Voltaire rock Opus this evening and relax doing it. :)
