Two weeks ago, I went to an indescribable place. It started with the entrance, as seen here, and it only become more magical and weirder as you ventured deeper into the grounds.
This is its 30th season, at the Vortex, a limited engagement event that runs from the end of March until the middle of May. I’m surprised I haven’t heard it before.
I was there with my old friends Carl and Alex. It has been 20+ years since I last met Alex, in fact. It was very surreal. Well dressed performers, danced and sang around us, like former college and high school drama geeks. The creative quotient was very high. We talked about our jobs from may years ago, in the 90s, the industry and technology at the dawn of the internet age.
The juxtaposition of retro-technogy, flamboyant drama performances, and drinks, in a distinctly Austin setting made for a night that I may never forget.
