Years ago, I was called out on the street by guys sitting outside a bar because they noticed my WFMU T-shirt. Turned out they were Mission of Burma. Amazing to meet them that way (I was actually on my way to see them)

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:43am fred:

@Paulo: yeah, the goal is different for each show. It's at the bottom of the "pledge" box when you click on it. Right now it says "$432 raised of $800"
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:59am fred:

@Brian: does the show's title mean you're going to play the Chieftains at some point? I need to have Guinness at the ready if you do...
