It'll be nice to see a gig in a totally different environment. Should we bring earplugs to the gig this Saturday Bill?

I think the Int Music posse is making an appearance as well....

hey dave' date='

yes, i think the new space will be very cool. not as cozy as the other one though, but good in other ways. i think the ems shows will float though after this...i've got a few other crazy ideas for spaces for later in the year. and i don't [i']think we'll need earplugs but it's better safe then sorry, so bring 'em just in case. it should be a really good night...doug is crazy.

i like the 'lots of money' idea!

You could try recording what happens in a post office Bill and see if its anything like this.

Who needs minimalism or techno when you can have this lovely ditty from Jim Koetting's 1975 recording of an African PO?
