and the crankin' rock songs blasting through our theater speakers!

NOTES AFTER THE FIRST TOURNAMENT
(Revised again, 5/15, 12:30am):


Wow, that was crazy!


So apparently, we're told, we were the FIRST EVER Guitar Hero II tournament in Los Angeles!  Can that be right?  The house was packed with die hard gamers, Sacred Fools, and folks who were just plain curious.  Ten-year-old Elis Sanchez's family drove him down from San Francisco just to compete - and he ROCKED the joint!  What showmanship!  He didn't win the night, but he sure won everyone's hearts!  And congratulations to winner Tom Prag, a high school junior from Claremont who won what his proud papa, Jay, says was also HIS first-ever tournament!

And NPR came to cover the event.  You thought they only covered classical musicians and macrame.  But no.

But the most important thing is, everyone had a great time, and seemed to want to do it again.  So will we?  SIGNS POINT TO "YES!"

But we don't know when yet.  So if you missed that big red notice up top, chekkit out.  Join the Sacred Fools Guitar Hero mailing list, and we'll let you know when the next one is.  Okay?  Okay!
