Who Was There?
According to Moonalice legend, September 17 is one of the great days in the history of the tribe. Every few years, something incredible happens on this day. In 1630, it was the founding of the city of Boston. In 1776, they founded the San Francisco Presidio. In 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed in Philadelphia. In 1814, Francis Scott Key finished the Star Spangled Banner. In 1859, Emperor Norton I began his reign here in San Francisco. In 1862, September 17 saw the Civil War's bloodiest battle - Antietam. In 1920, they formed the NFL. In 1991, Linux was released. And today, we are playing this free show in Union Square. This gig may not be as big a deal as the signing of the Constitution, but we thinks it ranks right up there with Emperor Norton and the NFL.

According to Moonalice legend, the tribe played a role in the creation of San Francisco's cable cars. In its early days, San Francisco's growth was constrained by the challenge of getting people and stuff up the hills. The city solicited proposals to remedy the situation. The Moonalice tribe, which was never big on exercise or hard work, suggested that the city provide a supply of hemp buds at the bottom of every street to eliminate the desire to go up hill. The city rejected that idea and went with cable cars instead. To add insult to injury, the city built the system with metal cables, rather than hemp rope. In the end, the tribe got involved the old fashioned way, by providing passengers - and perhaps even cable car employees - with the finest hemp products in the land.
