Pics from the Randboro set last Friday at Barfly

Randboro (left to right): Jean-Marc Barsalou, Jose-Luis Duque, me

We had a wicked fun time playing in front of the Barfly faithful last Friday for John's & Kim's birthdays. Randboro blasted through a set of nine originals that was only marred by a broken string on Spitsbergen (and, ahem, more than a couple of flubbed lines). But no matter - the crowd was there for a good time, and so were we. L'il Buck played like their usual fabulous selves.

One thing I learned back in my days as an editor at the Concordian was to never forget to give photo credit. Especially when they're as arty as this one on the right. I love the effect from the cigarette smoke. You won't get to see that again after the new total indoor public ban comes into effect May 31st. So a big thanks to Ms. Jen Peterson for these. (Her comments on the show: "Paul Westerberg would have loved it, as did I.") Glad you liked it, Jen, and a big thanks to all who came out. Hopefully we'll get our lazy butts out for another gig this Spring.

Cheers

Waycool.
But those damn anti-smoking zealots. Superman's late wife didn't even know what a cigarette was. A private members' bill?

Good pics. Looks like it was a lot of fun.
69 was the year I got married, so I could definitely be your mom. I've promised to take my son to Montreal for his 19th birthday in 2008. Hope you're still playing.

It's too much fun to stop, gg. I always find a way. Nothing beats performing live. It's a cathartic exercise to voice your hopes and frustrations at the top of your lungs in public.

The smoke actually looks like one of those paranormal pictures. Are you sure that isn't music friendly apparition trying to stop you from playing???....lol
