    Like Larry said, put in in the movie or the book. Playing through adversity will make you a better player.

    Thanks Suthol.
    I hope my brief rap of the story doesn't offend you, I laughed so much with your original telling of the story.
    Legend!

    I've lived in the Haight for 34 years. Just another afternoon in SF. So how's your 4 year old...?

    man! you guys will be talking about that for years! it reminds me of a cartoon I saw once in a magazine, where a naked man and woman are sitting at a restaurant table, the waiter standing near with a scowl on his face. the woman is reaching into her purse and saying "dammit Frederick, don't you ever have any cash on you?"

    A lot of other bands would have joined in the spirit of the afternoon and stripped off and started smashing trolleys around, guess your band held it together pretty well.

    In the Castro, $15.

    Ugh. I won't be here all week.
    And stay away from the veal.

    Great thread.

    Last night playing a very sad and slow song, I look out on the dance floor and there are 15 people doing a gleeful train, snaking around like it was the happiest song in the world. Then a harp player comes onstage. One lady wrote a request in all caps: "ANY GEORGE JONES SONG."

    That is the point where I nearly bathed my laptop in coffee. Actually got some on the front of my t-shirt.

    I think the best gig ever would've gone in reverse, and ended with a bunch of naked people.

    Yeah.

    Why would you wan to raise children there? To quote Bob Dylan: "You ask why I don't live here; honey, how come you don’t move?"

    I have a great pic of a naked accordian band in the castro right after the city tried to outlaw nudity.

    Why do these people NEED to be naked in a city plaza? I don't have a problem with it, but I always wonder about the purpose.
    Are they enjoying the fresh air on their naked bits? Surely there are more pleasant places to be for that.
    Is it political protest? But then it comes back to why? Why is this worth protesting for?
    Is it easier than getting dressed? They certainly wouldn't have much laundry to wash.
    Is it shock value?
    Or do they just enjoy having people notice their dangly bits?

    It takes a very confident man to hang around a naked accordion band with a camera...
