Do you know about QLab? It’s the software you want if you’re running sound. Doesn’t matter if it’s a storefront or a stadium, a church or a theatre, this is the program for you. QLab allows you to control audio, video, and MIDI from a single workspace. If you don’t run sound for your venue, ask your sound people–they’ll tell you why this is a big deal.

How about Tixato? Sure, you’ve tried other ticketing services and systems, but have you seen what Tixato can do?

This week, I talked with Chris Ashworth, the man who brought us QLab and Tixato. His company, Figure 53, makes things with love in Baltimore, MD. (You can follow them on twitter @Figure53.)

As long as we’re here, this is a video Chris made one not-so-lazy Saturday afternoon…

Silly Saturday Project from Figure 53 on Vimeo.

If you feel the muse poking you and decide to make a lazy Saturday video of your own, let us know and we’ll post a collection of them on the site.

The music you heard in this episode of Twenty:

Powerhouse, a Raymond Scott classic performed by the Faux Frenchmen.

Hey, Pocky Way by the Meters.
