Party for the Parks/ Gala Announcement :
Been out on Allentown with Gillian the past few nights between Lagniappes Lucky Dogs and Nietzsches during Buffalo Infringement Festival 2011. Our audiences have been wonderful, last night some folks from 12/8th Path Band joined us on percussion and it was bloody awesome. They are our favorite band in Buffalo to play with and we are looking forward to being next to them at Curtain Up!
We’ll be out tonight around midnight and quite possibly again tomorrow night.
“There is a spirit to the festival that would benefit us all if infused into the other 354 days of the year. It’s a sense of exploration, discovery, creativity, and celebration. It seems during those 11 bustling days that anything is possible – there are no boundaries, no restrictions, and no judgment. It’s a space where art is created organically and with intention, with the support of a strong and organized community.”

At the event Dance Your Art Off we spun LED props and Flags at various locations around the dance floor to enhance the Dj performances and create an interesting backdrop.
Dance Your Art Off, as the name suggests, is first a dance party and then an art party. Town Ballroom was transformed into an avant garde dance palace where respected deep house star John Ceglia and Buffalo-based artist DJ Cutler spun breakbeat, funk, hip hop, and deep house all night.
I have worked as a content creator in the Virtual World of Second Life for many years, and created a series of “fire props” for my avatar for this New World Notes feature. The profile was based around the this video of me fire hooping! Here is some pictures of my avatar with her virtual props!
