SLIDESHOW: The People of Something Wicked 2014
"Only half your face freaks me out"
It seemed that security at the main stage was constantly telling the same girls to get down off of peoples' shoulders.
"I love Crystal Castles" "You know they broke up last week, right?" "I'm going to go in the corner and cry now."
"Okay...I need another beer before I get sober again"
"I wonder how many dead batteries there will be tonight"
The funny thing about how many Deadmauses were walking around: these people were not dressed up as Deadmaus for Halloween. They were truly just repping a DJ who wasn't there, except for the guy whose helmet was made out of a pumpkin. Now that takes some balls.
- Day of the Dead/Sugar Skulls (seemed most prevalent this year)
- Sugar Daddy
- Ryu from Street Fighter
- Eric Cartman
- Jake from State Farm

Of every fest we have ever attended, this one was exceptional at staying on schedule, without any lulls or dead time.

Extremely accurate and very effective; massive kudos to your IT guy, Something Wicked.

"You'd think if they didn't want people to drink and drive they'd make it easier to get a cab"
"That's the future of our country right there"
