It’s been a busy week. It’s going to be an even busier weekend. I’m pretty booked up for the next few days—in the best way possible. As many of you know, MoCCA graciously asked me to curate the festival for the second year in a row. One of the upsides of that gig is the opportunity to play a role in many of the panels themselves.
And like last year, I will also be spinning records at the official MoCCA party. Sarah Morean will also be on hand, helping me run the panels downstairs at the armory, so if she doesn’t look too crazy busy, make sure to say “hello.”
Check out a quick schedule of my goings on at the show, after the jump.
