StrowlerCon is October 8-10 in Woburn, MA, and we are going to rock like you would not believe.

Join us in the Grand Ballrooms of the Woburn Holiday Inn, just north of Boston, on Columbus Day weekend — October 8th-10th, 2010 — for three nights of entertainment (live music, circus arts, burlesque) and two days of workshops, panels and other activities, including a special 10/10/10 celebration, and a Maker Showcase featuring inventions and material creations as well as artwork by local creators and attendees.

Click there to buy tickets - $45 for the weekend, $25 per day for day passes (so if you're going for more than one day, it pays to just buy the $45 weekend pass). To reserve your hotel room, e-mail lodging@strowlers.com.

Can't go but want to support StrowlerCon and sponsor a strowler? We have supporting memberships, and they come with goodies.

Okay. You have the technical details. But 'song, you say, what did you say about ROCKING?

An editorial comment. Strowlerfest in St Louis was astounding. If you are anywhere near the area, do not miss this.

I would love to, but it's quite a ways away from me, and I went to the St Louis event. Also that is Pythonacon weekend.

Take it back

Take it back
Take it back
Take back the right,
To sing and play.
It will fill your heart,
it will feed your soul,
When-you take-back the-right,
To sing and play!

Gabriel Gray's Song

This is my future,
My destined design
I'm closer each second,
each-tick of-the-clock in-mind
And the strong survive,
And the wheels turn slow,
And the pendulum swings,
And the power is Mine!

Okay, maybe you can explain - why are there multiple conventions with the same name? I have been completely confused because some people seemed to be talking about this in St. Louis and some in MA, and now I get that they are different events. But what's the connection?

StrowlerFEST was in St Louis, StrowlerCON is in Boston. They are run by the same people (and originated by K and S00j). They feature some of the same performers, but not entirely. They are very similar events.

And from what I understand they'll also be running StrowlerNIGHTS on the west coast later this year.

Yep... StrowlerNights is Halloween weekend in Seattle and I'd love to go, but it would be hard for me to be there and also be at Wild Mercy's gig that Saturday, and it would be kinda rude to not show up for my own gig, eh? :-)

Ah, thanks! I don't think I processed the last part - I probably just turned them all to "con" in my head. *grin*
