Grinder Media Expo - Report

The first annual Grinder Media Expo was held on February 28th at Club 307 in downtown Lafayette, Louisiana. Grinder is the brainchild of local comic book artist, Kody Chamberlain. The show was set up in the same spirit as other independent media shows such as the AntiGravity Media Expo we did last October. I'm always looking for little shows like this around Louisiana, so I jumped at the chance to get a table and be a part of it. The show itself was a lot fun. Club 307 has undergone a lot of renovations since I did stand-up there three years ago. It looks a lot better, but it is still cramped for space. The exhibitors all got to know each other a little better since we were in such tight quarters. The show started at 8:00 PM but the crowd didn't really get going until around 10. It was a young, college crowd, and they all seemed to be interested in what the exhibitors had to show. Overall, we didn't sell that much, but I'd still like doing these small shows because of all the people we get to meet (including the exhibitors). The funniest part of the whole night is that our table was next to Brad from Icon Visuals. So the whole night we had to explain to people that although we are both "Icon" from Baton Rouge, we are not the same group.
