Goodbye Planet Earth LIVE is HAPPENING!

I'm so excited I could explode.

Runtt and I will be performing all of my album "Goodbye Planet Earth" synchronized to the 2005 movie "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" LIVE ONSTAGE this March!

It's been a while since I could announce this, but we always ask. The last time we did this was at Further Confusion in San Jose, but now it's happening at ROFcon/FursonaCon in Virginia. This is something I dreamed of doing ever since I started work on the album back in 2007, yet I've only been able to make it happen once. Why? Because licensing, that's why.

For a convention to be able to book THIS show, they not only have to get us there for the performance, they have to pay for the rights to publicly display the film from Miramax. It's actually not as expensive as you'd think, but when some of these cons are already over budget just from renting the hotel space… you can see why we haven't been able to do this one more than once so far. ROFcon, however, is a Sci-Fi con that just added a Furry sub-convention to its family. So… if there was a more perfect place to do Goodbye Planet Earth LIVE, I honestly can't think of one.

If you can't make it to ROFcon, don't worry… we'll also be performing the entire album at Texas Furry Fiesta and Fur the 'More. If those cons can't afford the movie licensing, we'll still play the whole album nonstop (with a few new songs as well, maybe even some requests).

Some of these cons are checking to see if they CAN get the licensing… the updated list will live at:

    I hope Fur the More can do it. This year's a bit messed up in terms of cons for me, so other than FTM I'm not sure where I'll be able to go.

      Well, drop 'em a line… I know they're considering it, but not every con has the budget for a license like that.

        I get ya'. Will see what happens, I guess.

    Nice! Unfortunately, I can't get to those cons. The furthest one I can get to is Rainfurrest, and I'm not sure I can afford to keep going to that one even. shrug Sounds awesome though!
