Truly fine citizen

Eleven years ago today, we participated in a benefit at Southpaw in Brooklyn to help Alejandro Escovedo with his medical expenses.  Our acoustic set was heavy on the event-specific covers, especially if Alejandro is a fan of Gary Lewis & the Playboys and Moby Grape.  A reasonable assumption, I’m sure you’ll agree, but just in case we also performed Ernest Tubbs’s “Thanks a Lot,” remembered fondly from Rank & File’s repertoire, and the True Believers’ “The Rain Won’t Help You When It’s Over.”  Some of the details of the night are fuzzy, so I’ll have to guess that we ran out of time before getting to the Nuns’ “Decadent Jew.”
