CSTS Pittsburgh 2016 is TOMORROW at the Hollywood Theater at 5pm!
We've already told you all the logistics, and told you what you can win and how to go about winning it. Let's talk about the other entertainment at the event.
First off, we have a special "Browncoat Photo Station" at this year's event, courtesy of the fine folk at Firefly Cargo Bay. For one credit on your Blue Sun credit card, you'll be able to take a photo of yourself as the Mutant Enemy "Zompire," or get a couple of friends to pose with you as the Fruity Oaty Bar girls. 1 credit gives you the chance to snap either or both pictures, and our volunteer will do the honors for you, because nobody has arms long enough for a selfie at that distance! To see the boards in action, head on over to our Twitter feed (@csts_pgh) later today.
For them as might be interested, we'll also have a petition on hand that we'll be sending to SpaceX, asking founder and CEO Elon Musk (the real Tony Stark) to name SpaceX's first Crew Dragon spaceship, which will launch next year, after Serenity. This petition was inspired by the activism of takebackthesky.net, but even if you've done something through their site before, you'll still want to sign this petition, as it is unique to this year's CSTS Pittsburgh and will be mailed to SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell following our event. Look for it in the lobby, or ask a volunteer where you can find it.
And finally, we're all manner of proud to be bringing Browncoat singer/songwriter Sean Faust back to the 'Burgh this year! Sean has played CSTS Pittsburgh twice before, but he's promising an all new show this year, including the CSTS Pittsburgh debut of a new song he co-wrote with Mikey Mason (of "She Don't Like Firefly" fame) called "A Guy Named Jayne." And of course, he'll still be playing Browncoat standards like "The Ballad of Serenity" and his Serenity-inspired song "Signal." (Sean donates 50% of all sales of "Signal" to Equality Now, and everyone who buys a ticket to see the film on Saturday will get a card with instructions on how you can download the tune.) And of course no Sean Faust show would be complete without the whole house joining him in a rousing rendition of "The Hero of Canton" for the finale! Sean isn't a one-trick pony though. He plays non-Browncoat material too, and if you're a fan of the Grateful Dead, Phish, Yes or Toad the Wet Sprocket, you are guaranteed to like his style. Sean takes the stage at 6pm, so be sure to get there in time. You don't want to miss it. (Also, Sean will be donating a bundle of his music as a raffle prize again this year, and he'll sign the CD's for the lucky winner.)
So, to recap, here's your shindig:
5pm- doors open
5:15pm- the games begin
6pm- Sean Faust takes the stage (sale of Blue Sun cards ends)
6:30pm- games close (no new players)
6:45(ish)- "Hero of Canton" sing-along
7pm- Big Damn Movie
9(ish)- Raffle drawings
No more waitin'. We aim to misbehave!
See you Saturday. Until then...
