TLASILA Flood: Live, Safari Lounge, Providence, RI, September 17, 2004

It was pissing rain, the club was a dismal fuckhole in a dreadful location, and no one seemed to be running the joint, much less cognizant of an impending performance... Hours passed; our mood darkened. Then, many people appeared...

To Live and Shave in L.A. - Live, Safari Lounge, Providence, RI, September 17, 2004

The group:

Rat Bastard, Ben Wolcott, Mark Morgan, Don Fleming, Andrew W.K., Chris Grier (majordomo), und Term Smurf.



(Rat tracks an opening salvo's ballistics...)



(A desperate circus ambiance masked thee stench of d**th...)



(A sweet believer... We'd see more of her kind later.)



(Izzat Leslie Q at center tableaux? A sweetie, to be sure, but this perv was digging the lifeguard's gams and laser eyes.)



(Andrew's infectious smile brightens the world!)



("Row Houses" revs...)



(Had to ditch that fucking hat after the tour... Don and Rat refuse to look at it any longer.)



(If you look closely you can just pick out AWK's leg below Rat... No, over there. That's a Middle Earth Mark Morgan center-right, and the 20-foot, TS-themed carillon tower to his immediate right.)



(As promised... Dig the stereoscopic scan action
à doite!)



(Andrew breaks it down once again...)



(Counting the filthy lucre? Always a pleasure. Don is on the left, CG to his right.)
