After the NYC show on 11/26/08 at the Pyramid Club in NYC (101 Ave A.) Yes, I wore white. I'm a rebel. I also left for NYC from work.

It is better if it is not your icon picture either. A little effort here, people. :)

I actually decided to post a few links, to pics I've not posted before:

After some transportation trouble (like my wallet falling out of my purse in Marnen's car and having to walk over a mile and into the Bronx to get to the college that he had a rehearsal at to get it, then taking the bus to get to the subway- instead of just taking the Metro North from Yonkers like orginally planned)... I went and saw MirrorMask down at the Sunshine theater on E. Houston..

Oh my goddess, it's an incredible movie. I am *so* buying it when it comes out on DVD.

I then had dinner in Chinatown at this little (and cheap) Vietnamese place on Mulberry... hmmmm chicken with scallions and ginger (and the ginger was in long julliened strips...). Then I stopped off where Marnen was playing his contra gig (on the corner of 7th and W. 13th) and touched base then got dressed (as a gothy cheerleader, with red and black leather floggers as my pom-poms) for the Cruxshadows concert.

After waiting forever outside of the club (I got there about 45 minutes before the doors were supposed to open, then they were a half hour-ish late in opening them. I got a chance to speak to the other people there around me. We were also outside of a homeless women's shelter, and a lot came out for smoke breaks and kept asking why were there and dressed up like we were.

The concert was cool. I actually got a chance to hear ego likeness, and they're pretty good. The club has multiple rooms and levels, but the actual performance area was really slow. Marnen got there in time to see the Cruxshadows start. I think it was the same set list as Albany, with a little mixed up (the final encore was Marylin, My Bitterness). I got pulled up on stage again, and ended up with a few hugs from Rogue after the concert (like getting off the stage, when he was passing by, and when I got the dvd box signed). I got a the DVD box that they came out iwth (Shadowbox). I'm listening to the audio disk that comes with it now

Pictures to follow.

I got home this morning (after crashing with a couple of SCAdians in the E. 15th street/Styuvesant Park area- one of the fencers was having a birthday party and they had an extra crash space, something that had been worked out as a possiblity after fencing practice on Wednesday).

Now I'm trying to stay awake a little longer so I don't end up falling asleep and waking up at 4 am and not being able to go back to sleep.

Good Gods, I looked good.... even after a 2+ hr concert and stuff.

At least, for those who appreciate someone dressed in Goth gear...
