Who Was There?
According to Moonalice legend, the tribe declares a High Holy Day whenever a nomadic band plays a gig. Some High Holy Days are Higher than others, but all gig days are high. May 23 is High and Holy three ways to Friday. First, it is the Day of Disunity in the Discordian calendar. (Disunity was the word of the day for Moonalice, the band, as Blue was not with us for family reasons.) Second, it is World Turtle Day. By coincidence, two large, green dancing turtles adorned the stage. One member of the audience said she was a Goffle, a person who celebrates turtles. Others in the audience did not claim to be Goffles, but were celebrating turtles in their own way, often with small offerings of burning plant material. Third, today is the saint day of Aaron the Illustrious. Aaron was a monk in the 4th century, which probably means he got to be a saint by having hallucinations. All we know is that Aaron was also known as Aaron the Nuts. We are not making this up. Aaron the Nuts. Hallucination? Anatomy? You be the judge.

Schwagstock is a great scene in a really cool location. We celebrated with a set that included three - count 'em THREE - bass solos by Sir Sinjin. Sir Sinjin, Jesùs H., and Chubby all joined the Schwag on stage for a rowdy rendition of Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad.
