Last night the Greatest American Heroes got to play a total rock show event as one of three bands for Frog Design's SXSW Interactive Opening Night Party (thanks to our singer Dana, who works for Frog, though she's taking a new job in DC in a few weeks)! This was a giant party held in an old produce warehouse, and filled up with hundreds of people (not everyone was in front of our stage, of course). They had a great stage setup, with smoke machines, crazy remote control spotlights, and all kinds of graphic projectors putting cool images all over the walls! The sound guy was Damon, a cool guy that I've worked with before, and he's really professional - he had five mics on my kit all setup in just a few minutes, and he cranked us up loud. We only got to play an hour, and I have no idea what the crowd was thinking with the Muppet Show theme started blaring across the room, but it was really cool to play for a huge crowd with all that equipment and rock the house (in our own cheesy way)! Since the SXSW Interactive conference is going to be a majorly blogged event, I've already found some mentions of the party on the web - maybe someone will talk about that cool TV theme song band eventually. I didn't have my camera with me (baka!), but I tried to take a few crappy cameraphone pics to capture some of the moment.
