What to expect for my first Critical Mass? First real city ride in general.

So I finally got a bike last night, yay! I've done some adjustments, I'm fairly confident its a solid ride, though the skinny road bike tires are a little scary for me. Tonight at 6, I'm heading out for my first Critical Mass ride. What should I expect?
Will complete cycling newbie me be ok? Will it be really weird if I actually stop for the lights? (Atlanta PD has in the past been pretty aggressive with ticketing Critical Mass riders for not stopping at lights, plus my own personal bike ethic says to obey the rules of the road.)
Any advice, experience, or thoughts welcome!
