Here Comes G-FEST XXII
Up from the depths...thirty stories high...if you know the next line, chances are you are going to be in Illinois very soon for G-FEST XXII. We haven't previewed this year's Fest on the blog, but you can expect full coverage of the event including an eventual Monsterland Ohio Radio episode complete with interviews for your listening enjoyment.
As it stands, the things that I am looking forward to the most are seeing "Gamera vs. Jiger" and "Gamera: Guardian of the Universe" on the big screen at the Pickwick Theater and then returning the next night for the Symphonic Fury concert. The chance to hear composer Kow Otani's music played live is so extremely rare, it can't be overstated. It has never happened in his home country of Japan, so to be in the right place at the right time in Park Ridge is going to be very special.
If you're coming to G-FEST XXII with kids, look us up Saturday morning in the Kid's Thread--we'll have game demonstrations, story time and prize giveaways! Plus we may be recording a little bit for M.O. Radio. You could end up on a podcast!
We're very excited for our annual trek to the Windy City and look forward to sharing it with you.
