The 2007 Rites of Spring Festival has come and gone, and we are extremely happy to have been a part of such a great festival. From start to finish, the people who run ROSFest turned out to be friendly and helpful, and handled the issues that sometimes occur at such ambitious events with as much grace as could be hoped for. This is another event to remember!

We'd like to thank everyone who organized, performed at, and especially those who attended ROSFest. The venue was spectacular, the sound system was excellent, and you couldn't ask for a nicer group of people to spend the weekend with.

We have a photo diary that you can check out here, which will open up in a new window.

Below is a brief summary of the timeline of our trip in order to give a little context to the photo diary:

Monday, April 23: A travel day for Mike, Big Gulp, and Craig, who flew cross country from San Jose, California to Baltimore, Maryland, via Minnesota. As you can imagine, this took up much of the day. Sean & Chris Mack live in or adjacent to the Baltimore area, so that put everyone on the same general vicinity.

Tuesday the 24th through Thursday the 26th: The band practiced at Orion Studios in Baltimore with equipment generously borrowed from Jim Rezek & Dennis Mullin of Iluvatar, Dave Demarco of Oblivion Sun, and the owner of Orion Studios, Mike Potter.

Friday the 27th: The band travelled to Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, arriving around 4pm. Gear was loaded in to the Colonial theater, and the band went on about 2 hours late due to problems the ROSFest folks had with the lighting company.

Saturday the 28th: Puppet Show attended the festival like everyone else, catching as many of the other acts as possible. The notable exceptions were that someone was usually at the band's vendor table, and we did an interview for the Sea of Tranquility folks.

Sunday the 29th: Early Sunday morning (like, 2am or something) we attended the ROSFest VIP party where we chatted with all kinds of folks, and our own Chris Ogburn jammed on guitar a bit with three of the Spock's Beard guys. Alas, Mike, Big Gulp, and Craig had a return flight out of Philly at 6:30am. So, we just hung out at the party until it began to dissolve, then packed our bags and checked out. Sean graciously missed several hours of sleep and drove us to the airport. The last photos are of the VIP party.

Enjoy the photo diary! We had a great time, and only a few weeks later, we were on to a performance at CalProg in Whittier, California.
