The Nuns were an early San Francisco punk band (featuring Alejandro Escovedo). They were an opener at the Sex Pistols "final" show at the Winterland!

Mike, is this a vegetarian show because cherry blossoms are vegetable?

I keep getting falafel mixed up with farfalle, which are vegetable even though it means "butterflies".
Avatar Sat. 9/21/13 4:28pm Fredericks:

This Above is quite a nice piece of music.
Avatar Sat. 9/21/13 4:30pm Fredericks:

Butterflies aren't vegetables? What am I going to do with this salad?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/21/13 4:31pm Mike East:

oh man...denied!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/21/13 4:33pm Mike East:

@Robert - I believe terre's vegan, and I think there are a few commenters here that are as well, so I thought it might be a good pool to draw from.

I was just thinking the same thing. My first five albums from the Columbia record club. Sitting in front of my lo-fi 1970's hi-fi up in my bedroom stoned and spraying watermelon air freshener to throw my mom off the scent.
