FOUND: A Reason To Take It All In Stride

Found:  The Shoegazer was spending the evening at the Middle East upstairs, as he has recently taken to the show booking racket.  The show in question featured touring bands Holy Fuck and Crocodiles, along with local favorites Hooray For Earth.  Crocodiles, incidentally, draw fans of shoegaze music, however there’s more going on in their sound and The Shoegazer would hardly call them a shoegaze band.  HFE brought the crowd out early, including many friends and acquaintances of The Shoegazer.  Among these folks were two members of one of his favorite local bands, The Everyday Visuals.

During Crocodiles’ spacey set, The Shoegazer was standing with the aformentioned Visuals not far from the bar when a familiar scene unfolded – The Shoegazer looked down and spied President Jackson lying helpless on the floor.  After quickly retrieving the bill, The Shoegazer then set out to ascertain the source of the bill.

Location: This action all unfolded near the bar at the sold-out Middle East upstairs on Mass. Ave in Cambridge, MA.

Source:  Following the bill’s retrieval, The Shoegazer took a moment to brag about his unusual talent before asking if anyone in the area was short by $20 or so.  After checking his pockets, Everyday Visuals’ drummer Joe Seiders came forward as the likely source of the $20 bill, and it was prompty returned to the grateful drummer.

Destination: With his wayward bill return, Joe Seiders set off toward the bar, head held high, and purchased a round of drinks with the $20 bill.  Perhaps by coincidence, that was the exact same plan The Shoegazer had in mind for the Jackson, had he been unable to locate its source.  With the change, The Shoegazer presumes Joe purchased, say, a set of drum sticks, with which to practice for their next big Boston show: The Shoegazer’s birthday party on Saturday 8/8 at the very same upstairs room featuring Joe’s Everyday Visuals along with The Shills, The New Collisions, The Motion Sick and Hymns.
