event { Buffy sing-a-long


On Saturday, June 2nd, at midnight the members of the nerdpod went to the 'Buffy: The Vampire Slayer' sing-a-long at the Riverview Theater (of all the theaters in all the world I've been to, this is my favorite). It was at midnight, so we went over after a particularly brutal D&D session (1/2 of our party was killed). We were thinking it was going to be maybe 40-60 people. The Riverview can hold around 700 people...and it was almost full. The energy in the room was amazing. The Buffy sing-a-long was put together by a group that does this weekly in New York, but this summer they are touring. Think 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' except much more fun. Props were handed out, and audience participation was required...and FUN! I sang along, the rest of the nerds sang along. It was about a 2 hour event, so I rolled into home back in Rochester around 4am, still jazzed.



It was an amazing collection of people from all walks of life, gender, race, income, age...singing together, in perfect nerd.

We went Friday night! It was great fun except for a couple of seriously drunk and obnoxious folks that got up on stage for the Buffy-oke. The crowd actually booed and hissed at them until they left the stage. That was a shame, but things picked up again.

We sat near the front so we got to do the "They got the mustard out" dry cleaning dance!

Um...I should point out that GG did the "Mustard" dance. I didn't.

I was actually pretty non-plussed by the Friday night crowd. GG and our friends had a great time, but in the end I felt a little fleeced.

Must be getting old...

Boy, I'm glad we went Saturday night! Because I thought the event totally RULED! Sounds like the Friday night viewing was a bit of a dud.

I'm sorry you guys had a few that dampened the experience. Saturday night was a blast.


Also I'm looking forward to 'Pray for Daylight' on the 28th!

Saturday night Buffy Sing-a-Long did rule, though maybe it helped to be there with a bunch of nerds who were TOTALLY INTO IT.
