Linux, musical road-dogging, and daily life by Paul W. Frields

We had a great show on Saturday night at Andy’s in Maryland, despite our beloved drummer Rich being stricken with back problems that left him in agony and unable to travel with us. It was very interesting when a couple of patrons, annoyed by the loud conversation at an adjacent table, and after repeated attempts at more subtle shushing, got up and asked the talkers to kindly shut up. It’s refreshing to see people so interested in hearing live music that it becomes the focus of their attention, rather than treating the musicians like they were an automatic jukebox or background noise.
