Local Hype (Part II)

The gig last night at BMOCA went very well. Boulder Digital Arts brings out a great crowd and I enjoyed seeing many people I have not seen for awhile including old friends (not old is in old, old as in "as times goes by"), former students, current students, Boulder artists, and many others.

And now for some more Boulder hype. Is it really this good? The City of Boulder would like you to think so. They have an entire area of their website devoted to recent accolades:
