I’ll be there for pretty much the entire thing. I’m landing at Cologne airport at 12:05. I’m not exactly sure how long the train journey is from there into the city, but it doesn’t seem very long, so I guess I’ll be at the party location at around 12:30-ish… maybe a little later since I also have to check into my hotel.
While I’m in Cologne I have no other plans except for the club thing on Friday night and of course Evoke itself. I think I just want to relax while I’m there so I can take it all in, have a few drinks, meet and talk to people, take some photos, etc. I probably won’t even bring my laptop into the party itself. I’m not planning any big compo entries or anything like that, so it would be nice not to have any equipment and shit to worry about… just me, myself and I. Perhaps I’ll share someone else’s machine for some co-op music action if an interesting opportunity presents itself.
The skateboarding exhibition thing seems like it could be interesting, but I think I prefer to stay at the party location since it will be my first time at Evoke (or any scene party, actually).
As for reserving some spaces… I’m not sure how all that stuff works. Do you reserve spaces and get some kind of place holder to put on the table, maybe with a name on it? Or do you just have to sit there and kick peoples’ asses when they try to steal the space?
It would be nice if most people showed up at around the same time (ie. early) so that one of us doesn’t have to sit there alone for several hours.
