Ahh, Frank.

A man of many names, and several indelible talents.

He's behind me, isn't he?

Mr. Joey Santiago manages to menace himself from above.

Not just a drummer, also a magician. It’s true.

All of them.

Notice Frank’s coy foot.



Oh, Frank.

Dance! / The man-ta ray!”


Joe has a punk rock guitar strap. Unexpected.

The downstroke.

Downstroke in progress.

Three-quarters turn.

Three-quarters turned profile. Concentration.
No guitarist has ever made as feral a sound.

Thank you for having been rocked.

Thank you for having been rocked.

Bows and thank yous.

The thankers and the thankees.

Doing the wave cracks Kim up.

The band doing The Wave during bows cracks Kim up.

The setting? Oakland.

The setting? Oakland.

The setlist? Yes.
