a week ago wednesday Holopaw played Lightnin’ Salvage and thursday they went on an east coast tour which they are still on. john, lead singer, is the resident artist for LSE, and Jeff, bassist on the left of screen was our star pizza maker before leaving to open his own bar and pool hall called Palomino. the other jeff, on the right, is an old old friend who i’ve known since he was about 6, and patrick, on the left behind the first jeff, still works at satchel’s serving and has been with us many years. patricks twin ryan is on drums and matt is on keyboard, neither who has anything to do with us, except they probably eat our pizza and drink our beer. anyway, this was i think possibly the best show i’ve seen them play and it was a really fun night. there was a big crowd of very mature and hip people and i was surprised to find myself having so much fun.
thanks to wade for filming, with danny’s camera.
on another note, tonight a guy told me, “i’m 68 years old and this is my first time here and that was the best pizza i’ve had in my entire life!” another guy told andrew that it was the best pizza he ever had at our place. anyway, it was good times all around and there was even this amazing lemon cake my mother made that everyone loved. happy memorial day to all.
