and addressing crowd, "Hello, groovers!")

After the sets, Robyn and Scott signed things at the merchandise booth,
Bill broke down his drum kit, John hung around on the edge of the crowd,
and Peter drifted in and out of the crowd. The band had mentioned, while on
stage, that they were helping Robyn record a new album. Scott confirmed
that 3 songs tonight were part of the new recording project--Ole Tarantula,
Adventure Rocket Ship, and Undergroud Sun. I mentioned to Robyn that Joey
Burns from Calexico is interested in working with him, and Robyn said that
they were try to nail a bit of time down to approach doing something.
On a personal note, this was a milestone for me tonight--it was the 50th
time I've seen Robyn perform. A great night overall. Time for sleep, as I'm
nodding off at the keyboard. Later, Marc
