Oooh, that sounds cool!  I hope it’s an annual thing, 'cause I’d love to go next year!

Welcome to HTMF, Midnight! :smiley:

This event is such a wicked idea - I hope lots of people go all out on costumes and there’s lots of attendees - not just the old, ugly, loser kind either.  JK - it’s all what you make it and the attitude you show up with, plus the ugly people will all be wearing masks…

Oh that kind of masquerade. Sounds like a lot more fun than a bunch of geeks talking about iptables… :smiley:

Is there a projected start / stop time?

Oh yeah that sounds like a good time, but what can I wear is the big question now.

Times… doors open 7:30. 
5 hours continuous music from three different bands. 
No tickets at the door - so get your tickets early!!

Paper mache masks are fun!

TIP: Oil your eyebrows (or other facial hair you wish to keep) before applying paper mache to your face - otherwise when the mache dries and you peel it off you will lose them. (voice of experience - youch!!)

I once made a really funky sun mask - took an evening.

At the IceHouse Gallery they are making amazing masques with nothing more complicated than a glue gun and some box-board.  a few feathers, some sparkles, and ribbon…

also an update:
I have some info about music and times etc that i’d like you to pass along to anyone who you know who is thinking about comming out!!

Doors Open at 7:30!!!

Nothing is written in stone, but we have 3 bands : Lil’ Kiki & the Wolf (Karen Young), the Ditto Sisters, and Nonsuch (Jack Sigurdson, Charles Justice & Peggy Carl).

the plan is to have 3 separate sound set-ups at the front of the dance floor so the bands can change with a minimum of fuss.

As far as I know, there is to be continuous music from 7:30 or 8 o’clock on until 1 or 2 ………so 5 hours or more. .We’ll probably play it by ear…………what the crowd seems to want & how much each band wants to play.

No tickets at the door… .so you’ll have to get them ahead of time!!!
