Yesterday, my ears were ringing a little too loudly to make heads or tails of all the flickr galleries and YouTube posts on Ümloud! But today I finally found a video of my friends' band rocking out.

My buddy Andrew and his housemates have been playing Rock Band for ages, so it wasn't much of a surprise to see them there at the event. What I didn't know is that they'd be bringing their LEGO heads. Other great acts of the night include Ironheade in full cosplay gear and the girls that rocked the Dixie Chicks.

That pink and black smudge with the tiara in the bottom right hand corner of the screen is actually me acting as Stage Manager Fairy, writing out Chris Kohler's script for the next act. Next year I think I'll procure walkie-talkies for the stage crew. Or possibly a bullhorn just for myself. Either way, I still don't have a voice today — but I have a ton of fun memories and a wonderful feel-good glow that comes from donating time, money and swag to Child's Play.

Thank you to everybody who came out. We'll see you next year!
