the Stragglers played for the door as headliner for a three-band concert in the local big-box venue ... extremely cold for here, driving rain all night, several great shows in town ... we didn't draw flies. i counted eight people in the audience during the middle of our set (the opener played to, oh, at least 30!). luckily, the fiddler was buying us all shots of Jack to kill the pain.
but we played our asses off regardless. those eight people will remember that night.
Truth is stranger than fact ...
It pays to appease all the gods
