According to Moonalice legend, all members of the tribe shall be chiefs, whether or not they play bass. While it is a fact that bass playing is the heart of Moonalice spirituality, it brings with it a heavy amp and a sore back, not a special place in the tribal hierarchy. Evidence of these great truths was on display in Union Square this day, as the band played a lunch time gig in the heart of San Francisco. A large tribe formed in the Square shortly after noon. In keeping the with tribal tradition, everyone was in charge. The band played a spirited set — complete with four bass players — with lots of dancing and carrying on. Other than a touch of sunburn on Chubby Wombat’s scalp, no animals (or tribe members) were harmed in the making of this gig.
