Torben came by and helped me work out some technical details. I think his edits are exactly right and I am suuuuuuuper glad to have his thoughts on these modifications.

Bye bye bed

Torben did not come to play. But he did get dirtier than he says he has ever been (hard to believe…)

Side panels

To limit our renegade set-up/break-down time, we want to load our speaker cabinets in place and simply remove the side panels when we show up. Our side panels have lived inside the truck which has made this impossible to accomplish.

Tasty Humanity

“Food and music are common denominators amongst us all.” – Lori Wolf

We have a fantastic mural on 51st Street in Oakland, California made by Camille Hoffman. Her art “All Of Mankind” is of four women holding hands and bonded together to share a single body. Her piece was inspired by the “All …
