Wow, can't believe it's been over 20 years and exactly 199 shows... we're coming up on the 200th show of the legendary Consortium of Genius, to be held in Houston this coming weekend at the Houston Arcade Expo, a wonderful arcade-centric convention that I've attended many times in the past - always a great time. Houston's got a vibrant scene when it comes to pinball and arcade collectors, and every year they clutter the hotel up nicely with three arcades-worth of classic machines to play. And this year they hired us to perform! We're going to field a great big rock show with lots of old favorites, 80's covers for the occasion, and even a couple new songs. Also trying a couple new technological toys for the occasion - running three backscreen video projectors instead of the usual one, with environmental video loops flanking the main screen. Also running a bunch of Arduino powered lighting on various things like guitars and mic stands. Lots of last minute stuff to get up to speed quickly, but so far, so good!
So last night, we shot this little promo / coda to the 'Pinkerton For President' storyline that has consumed most of the year. I had to knock this out quickly, so some corners were cut, but I think it does a decent job... big thanks to the band and to director Chris Enyart for pulling this together very quickly on a stormy evening last night...
