I will be there Tues. I drive from AZ to San Diego Tuesday and I usually get there around 1pm.

I may have to go to this show. Thursday is a busy night for me generally beucase I go out with the spawn board people then.

I definately want to check out the Woebots live painting though thats sounds incredible and if they have a sale I will be there for sure.

Here are two afterhours events that I'm super stoked for!:

July 24, 2009
Brian Posehn and Doug Benson @ Balboa Theater
I ordered two tickets a few days ago and scored third row seats (I know, WTF, awesome!). You can order from Ticketmaster or you can call the Balboa Theater box office and order directly from them, which is what I did.

July 25, 2009
Repo! the Genetic Opera Midnight Show @ Gaslamp Stadium
Here's the message about it from Darren Lynn Bousman:
We at REPO like to Party!
So, of course we will be at Comic Con partying like it's 2056!
So, if your around come hang out July 25th in San Diego if your around... Even if your not around COME HANG OUT!
Of course we will have special guests, shadow cast, prizes, new Swag... and lots of singing!
Get your tickets early, because WE WILL SELL OUT!
See you all there!
http://www.fandango.com/gaslampstadium_ ... =7/25/2009

I am super stoked about both, but particularly the Repo! screening. I went to the Repo! Road Tour and had such an awesome time. Lots of people dress up and it's a crazy time. Darren Lynn Bousman, Terrance Zdunich and Bill Moseley were at my road tour, I met them and they are all really cool guys. It should be an awesome event - I'm curious about who the special guests will be!
