Jacksonville show - Wet and wild. The band cover up in local gear against the rain to residents delight.

Jacksonville show. So we play outdoors again and the rain comes down again.. No matter, the band played on and as usual turned adversity in to a virtue. Whether it was a moment of madness, or a gesture to the increasingly moist crowd I don't know, but the band emerged from the Lemon wearing "Panthers" sports shirts, in honour of the local team. The shirts were huge, untucked and came down to the guys' knees, which looked pleasantly daft. The audience loved it, and really the whole show was quite fun in a damp sort of way, but none of us were sad to get back to the warmer climes of Miami after the show.
