Caught the Fresh Robots again tonight at the Punchline. Personally I prefer the Mock Cafe as a venue. These guys are great, hopefully they aren't too smart to make it in the inane entertainment sphere they lampoon so well. Catch them while you can....

Before hand I went to this Sci-Fi reading. It was odd. There were about eight of us there including the author and store staff. And of course we were all a bunch of trenchcoat/leather dressed-in-black socially-strained geeks so it got a little awkward at times with such an intimate group. I bought two of the guy's books, since he read well.

On the way to the Punch Line a crowd was spilling out into the street. They were watching some sort of dance performance, so I pulled over and stood precariously on my motorcycle seat to see over their heads. It was some sort of flame twirling burning-man sort of thing happening on the sidewalk. There was a VW bus loaded with equipment playing video (live I think) on a make shift screen behind them. The crowd was mostly yuppies, it was a little odd. I took some photos, maybe I'll post them later.
