Last night we had our kick-off party, featuring an outdoor screening of The Kings of Leon documentary, Talihina Sky. It went well. Like really, really well (maybe a little TOO well for some of us). All of us on the staff of deadCENTER are thrilled when we see pictures like the one posted by twitter user @toddscottballje:
We’re not sure yet how many people showed up, but are pretty confident it was more than last year. But it really wasn’t the numbers that bowled us over – it was the energy the audience had. You guys rock.
So from all the staff – thanks to all you audience members and our volunteers for coming out and making our first night awesome. Stick around for the next few days – we’ve got a lot planned. You can plan the rest of your festival here.
UPDATE: George Lang has a good write-up on last night’s festivities here.
