After leaving the caucus, lizardprincess and I went to Noodle-ism for a quick dinner, then we were off to Threadgill's for the evening mixer. It was a hot Texas night, but the Asylum Street Spankers did a good job entertaining the crowd, although they didn't get to play some of their more ribald numbers. The opening act, Steve Moore, wasn't as successful; my favorite thing he did was the Soundcheck Song. I did get to meet some activists from Kerville and Plano, a voting-reformer from Bastrop, and a labor union researcher who moved here from D.C. It was a fun atmosphere, and while it was a little crowded at times, I'm sure it's nothing compared to tomorrow night's 2200-person sell-out at Stubb's.
I've posted photos online at http://splashblog.com/demfest2005. I hope to get more people posting pictures to the moblog tomorrow.
