January 9, 2009 – 19 Broadway, Fairfax, California
Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Wikipedia, the town of Fairfax is named after Lord Charles Snowden Fairfax, an English nobleman who moved there after the gold rush. Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? That’s what we thought, too, so we consulted the Legend. According to Moonalice legend, the name Fairfax is actually derived from the Moonalice term for “hills that are pretty to look at, but way too steep for growing hemp.” So apparently the tribe abandoned Fairfax to the white people. We like what you’ve done with the place.
According to Moonalice legend, 19 Broadway is Discordian. You would think a venue called 19 Broadway Nite Club would be located at 19 Broadway. No. No. No. 19 Broadway is located at 17 Broadway. There were 50 guys milling around in the street because they could not find the place on their GPS.
According to Moonalice legend, tribe members who violate the Moonalice Code are punished severely. The tribe turns them into garden gnomes. We brought one to the show as an example: Bare Assed Garden Gnome Moonalice. (BAGG Moonalice is a standard size garden gnome, but he is trying to “two.”) As members of the tribe, you may be wondering, “Yo Chubby, you never told us about a Code. What gives?” Members of the tribe, we regret to inform you that we have never heard of the Moonalice Code. We’re in this lifeboat together. If the situation is causing you any anxiety, we recommend you consult Dr. Big Steve Parish.
Tonight’s poster, by Chris Shaw, provides the first photographic evidence of the existence of Moonalice crop circles. These incredible logos appear from time to time in fields of hemp. Naturally, we suspect aliens. Given the quality of tribal hemp, it’s easy to understand why a Moonalice crop circle is so much more ornate than the traditional alien works.
