The show season rolls on this weekend with the MoCCA Festival here in scenic New York. Although it”s a hot summer day in the 80s today, it’s expected to be in the 50s by the weekend, so sweat looks to be at a minimum.

  1. I’m a bit upset the festival wasn’t in the summer. I guess the location choice and last year’s experience pushed it to April. Oh, well…

  2. (NOAA) forecasts temps in the 40-65°F range, slight chance of rain. Is there a coat check?

    Perfect time for a show. Right before Chicago, counter-balances APE and SPX.

    No reason why someone couldn’t program a show in the Summer, but HVAC is costly (I still remember the chill from the King Con gymnasium, and from Big Apple). A hotel would solve that problem, but cost more? (SPX has always been in hotels.) Or maybe a school cafeteria or gym like Ramapo, or a church, or community center.

    Only problem: Con War with Kids Comic Con in the Bronx on Saturday. Different clientele, but some fans (like me) attend both, as do some professionals.
