Mar 14, 2014- All-Con Show Report/Con Report!
It’s our favorite weekend of the year! Or at least tied with Halloween! All-Con, held every year in Addison (home of…hotels and restaurants), is awesome and they love us and we love them and we have been their snugglebuddies for like the last 8 years. And considering they were celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, that’s a lot of snuggling!
So what do we do at the con? Officially, we perform Rocky Horror there on Friday night! Officially, we work the hospitality suite all weekend, which is a rad place where you can have a seat, a drink, a snack, watch some All-Con TV (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY TRAILER!!!), tell us how much you love us, etc. We also like to hold a little informal cocktail party after our show, since we always travel with a 55 gallon oil drum full of liquor, and if we didn’t have help drinking it, we would die.
So I’ll start with Rocky. How was it? Who was in it? Thanks for asking!
Dr.Scott- Surprise(d) Gus
Tech: Kristin, Chance, James, Danny and Sean
Grip-David, Snow, Cody, Joe, James
FW-Alex, Jason, Cody, David
Transies- Rainbow, Michael, June, Nikcola, Sims, Brooklyn, Pete
What would a con show be without FANCY PRESHOWS!!! We had three this time, videos will be up soon. First, out of the crowd of dancing folks on the stage, Alex popped up and live rapped Fett’s Vette, which went over huge, just like last year. A couple songs later, Jenny and Renny did a genderswapped Blurred Lines, along with Pete, Jon, Sean, and Snow as their scantily clad dancebitches. #Bastards. Finally, Madame Leah herself led a troupe of Jenny, Renny, Patricia, and June to a version of Kes$ha’s “Take it Off” that ended with…well, with things taken off. And boners. And glitter. And glitterboners. Okay, just Jenny had a glitterboner. #Boners.
Attempting to follow that was Alex and I: telling jokes, yelling swears, laying down the law. Or at least the rules. By then, Khaleesi Leah had put some clothes back on and came out to announce the what what (in the butt). We popped some cherries, and then Sean led some special virgins through a live slashfic workshop…acted out with words and motions and pie.
We had a “minor” AV issue, but we had A, so with naught but a blue screen to accompany them, our cast went through opening dance with no hiccups whatsoever. Before the song was even half over, the video joined the party, and all of a sudden it was a spectacle of theatre! Gregg was scheduled to be Dr. Scott, but he had a fever (he’s feeling better now, thanks), so Gus was kidnapped, shoved into a wheelchair, and made to perform. We also had Megaaaan surprising Frankenjenny in the bedroom scene, although only a few lucky Bastards got to see what went on behind the sheet. We had a great crowd though, packed the seats, plus standing room only, and you guys were LOUD. Which is good! We like loud! And tacos. But you weren’t tacos, which is okay. Cause you were loud.
After the show, the party raged on for a few hours, plenty of good tunes, good drinks, and sweaty fuckers. Thanks for all of you, we didn’t get shut down, and no one booted or passed out or crawled into a cabinet and ended up in Narnia. After that, moooooooost of us got some sleep. Sleep is rad.
The rest of the con was awesome. Alex was a panelist this year! Alex’s secret identity is the Nature N3rd, and he was teaching us how to survive a zombie apocalypse. He has survival gear and a slideshow and prizes! He also had a Sean helping him, and if you didn’t see his panel, then check out his website: www.naturen3rd.com
We had hot tub fun, some of you came out to join us, which was baller. Nothing like a hot tub with cold rain falling…except when it gets too rainy and we fear electrocution from lightning (FUCK YOU THOR). A little scotch and cigars time, some random chance encounters with you, the audience, etc etc etc. It’s All-Con! It’s the best thing ever! It’a like the Avengers movie had three vaginas and it’s tits dispensed Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Next year, be at All-Con!
