FOUND: 2 X $2

Found:  The month of August was a quiet one for The Shoegazer, who did not make any interesting finds on the ground, monetary or otherwise.  It’s also worth noting, however, that it had been quite awhile since The Shoegazer had visited Great Scott – a streak that was broken on Friday, August 28, when he attended The Pill, and quickly found 2 $1 bills lying on the floor near one of the coat racks.

The following Thursday, September 3, The Shoegazer once again ventured to the enclave affectionately known as Allston Rock City, to catch a few local bands.  Upon ordering a drink, bartender and club manager Tim was quick to regale The Shoegazer with the tale of his own find – a $20 bill under a bar stool after closing time a few days prior.

While the band Lifestyle were beginning their set, The Shoegazer glanced downward and though “hmm, that looks like a dollar bill stuck to that girl’s shoe”.  Low and behold, it was a dollar, along with one of its twins, and another piece of paper.  Realizing that the source was probably the owner of the shoe (the girl in front of him), The Shoegazer alerted her.  After a little assistance, dollars and girl were reunited and attention shifted to the synth-pop offerings of Lifestyle.

Location:  The 8/28 dollars were found near a coat rack not far from the main entrance.  The 9/3 dollars were found in the dance floor area a few feet from the sound booth.  Both finds, of course, happened at Great Scott at 1222 Commonwealth Ave, Allston MA.

Source:  The source of 8/28 dollars remains at large, $2 poorer as a result of their own lack of paying attention.  The 9/3 dollars were returned to their likely source, who identified herself as Emma.

Destination: The 8/28 dollars were likely spent that night at Great Scott.  They went into The Shoegazer’s pocket and quickly made friends with the other dollars in there.  Since the night was young, The Shoegazer surmises that the 9/3 dollars were spent on a drink at some point later in the evening.
