CONSTANCE: “What the fuck are Yuuu lookin’ at.”
ADAM: “We are the harmonies!”
Once a street type fellow, seemingly strung out on drugs, helped my brother and Pat push Amanda’s broken down van into a parking spot on 8th ave. During the show, I was informed that a sketchy guy was on the sidewalk between our house and the neighbors house. The cops seemed to be shining the light around our street trying to find someone. He ended up coming in. He was the van pushing helper and seemed a little drugged up this time too. Austin greeted him. Austin told him he thought that the cops might be looking for him. He told him there wouldn’t be a problem, he is not the type to call cops. In exchange, Austin asked if he would be cool to our house, no problems. It was a deal and he stayed all night, occasionally throwing quiet lines into a conversation or introducing himself. He was timid though and on something, glazed eyes with weighted lids struggling to stay open. He kept dozing off in the back of the basement. We had a brief conversation about how Austin and I were twins. He seemed to enjoy the music. He was on his way after the show. You may have seen the poster. Snitches get stitches. Taking a chance takes courage and this time it seemed worked out.
The night ended with laughter in the kitchen over bad interpretations of crump dancing.
