According to Moonalice legend, early generations of the tribe included both nomads (known as bands) and farmers (known as hippies). The bands and hippies gathered from time to time for pow-wows (known as gigs), where the low tones of traditional Moonalice music could be heard for miles around. One of the core Moonalice gig rituals of that era was the peace smoke, initiated by the hippies, which occurred at precisely 4:20 in the afternoon. While the details of the peace smoke have been lost to history, elements of the ritual survive to this day.
The first gig of the new tribe of Moonalice occurred in United Nations plaza in San Francisco on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Billed as Cannabis Awareness Day, the event was a breath taking example of truth in advertising. Among the many surprises that afternoon was the appearance of The Seventh. With Yggdrassil in the line-up, the rest of the Moonalice tribe settled into higher-toned instruments for an afternoon of new material and great times.
