Concert Setup and Sound Checks (Friday) - Friday, 02-10-2012 - 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm - River AB (Programming - Media)
Concert setup and sound checks for Bill & Gretchen Roper and Cheshire Moon.
Cheshire Moon Concert - Friday, 02-10-2012 - 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm - River AB (Programming - Media)
Cheshire Moon is the fanciful collaboration of trickster bird Lizzie Crowe and crazed magician Eric Coleman. What began as a simple joining of two talents in song circles, and occasionally during the mad-hatter antics of Eric Coleman on stage, whipped and frothed into the most likely of pairs. Eric’s love of punk, folk and prog rock gives them an eerie, otherworldly sound, while Lizzie brings the voice of that otherworld to life in chorus and verse. Together they bring about a torrent that is as playful as it is lightly sinister, all wrapped up in a pretty little beribboned box. Do you dare to open it?
SF/F Music that Isn't Filk - Saturday, 02-11-2012 - 11:30 am to 1:00 pm - Birch A
Science Fiction and Fantasy has inspired more music than just filk. Artists such as David Bowie, Rush, Styx, Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, and Janelle Monae have incorporated genre tropes and stories into their songs and albums. We discuss some of our favorites.
Ooh, I'm the moderator on this one!

Concert Setup and Sound Checks (Saturday) - Saturday, 02-11-2012 - 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm - River AB (Programming - Media)
Concert setup and sound checks for Toyboat and Il Troubadore. May be able to start later... this is my "worst case" time slot until I have confirmation from Dave Ifverson of how much time we need.
Toyboat Unclogged! - Saturday, 02-11-2012 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm - River AB (Programming - Media)
The question Toyboat is most often asked is "Why are the guitars distorted? Is there something wrong with the guitars?". So, due to underwhelming demand, Toyboat will leave their electric instruments at home (except for Raven, he'll still bring his organ, we tried to get him to play the accordion, but he just looked at us like we were crazy, still, he always looks at us like that) and bring … yeah … acoustic guitars, standup bass and real drums. There is still no safe minimum distance.
