BANDTHRO Concert
The Toontastic Pilot Show (FRIDAY @ 8pm)
Over the years I've had the privilege to perform and collaborate with some incredibly talented musicians. Now after all this time, I think it's about time I started an "official" band with these guys. So for the first time and at Texas Furry Fiesta 2015, we will be performing our first ever live show under the name "BANDTHRO".

So it's with great pleasure that I can introduce TFF 2015's Bandthro lineup to you. Featuring your ever musical Fox, Fox Amoore, the Bear that plays EVERY instrument Rhubarb, British loving beard wielding keyboard maestro Cosmik, the Texan whack everything with your fluke Dolphin Boy on drums ('MURRICA), the minstrel of fiddle and magic - Alexander James Adams, the angelic and
voluptuous voice of Amadhia and finally some local dude with a guitar (granted, that dude is the amazing Shredon Koroz and he is awesome and plays like a mofo... AND A RARE GUITARIST WHERE YOU HAVE TO TELL THEM TO TURN IT **UP**). We will be featuring guest performers including the amazingly talented Matthew Ebel and Pepper Coyote. Needless to say... We have an utterly incredible line up!

This concert will be the biggest band event I've put on for a convention in the Fandom so far. The concert will be free entry, bring as many friends as you like. The event will also be photo and video friendly, so feel free to film us
when we're shouting our heads off at the drummer to zip it. We're here to entertain and rock you with a whole host of original and energetic live material!

I would also like to extend a HUGE thank you to Jackrow whom has provided BANDTHRO with logos, posters and other promotional materials to help us get started. Please make sure you checkout the rest of his work, follow his galleries and ultimately tell him just how amazingly talented and awesome he is: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/jackrow

Thank you to all of the Texas Furry Fiesta staff for helping make this concert possible. And thank you to ALL of you for your support over the years. Enjoy TFF 2015!

Your musical Fox,
Fox Amoore

In the darkness of ages past, our universe was visited by aliens strange and unknowable. They enslaved hundreds of people and they conquered thousands of worlds. For untold generations, the Myriad people served them, and worlds were stripped of all resources, and left barren and dead. And then, a century ago, the Syndics were gone. Discover primitive worlds with savage monsters, high-tech stations of amazing technology, and places far stranger. You will find lost treasures, and you will find horrors best forgotten. The risks are great, but the rewards are greater.

Furry Short Film 'Classics:' Animal Soccer World
In 2005, Phoenix Games released a title called "Animal Soccer World," considered by the video game review site Desctructoid.com to be "one of the worst games ever made." However, the "game" is nothing but digital coloring books and one short furry film--one singularly, monstrously memorable train wreck of animated glory. Come see what happens when a single voice actor, Disney character design rip-offs, and animation from an offshore tax haven converge to form a 30-minute cinematic masterpiece. Critical discussion to follow after the film--if you can hang on for that long.
