    A group of my friends are going to this and I will go with if I can get the money together. So probably not then.
    Don't you get a free ticket if they're showing your thing Sloane?

    I know the guy who's putting this on, James his name. He let me try on of his dreamachines once. Can't say it was mind-blowing, but it definitely did something. Not sure if I'll be around to go to the event.
