Moonalice, Hot Tuna poster by Chris Shaw
In Moonalice legend, the medicine man was a bass player who combined great musical skills with a prodigious ability to procure organic materials to take the edge off tribal reality. So powerful was Moonalice medicine that no one could afford it, which gave rise to the Moonalice Free Clinic, which provided drugs and care to those in need. It is said that the whole tribe soon needed care. In modern times, the free clinic movement got second life in San Francisco, where the Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic set a standard of care that is admired and widely imitated. The admiration of the city of San Francisco was reflected in a benefit at the Great American Music Hall, where the band shared the bill with Hot Tuna and (opener). GAMH offered the perfect setting for a benefit show on a warm Wednesday night. The air was fresh with the smells of summer. Moonalice tribe members attended in large numbers, many sporting stickers saying, “Hi! My name is _____ Moonalice!” The band was pleased to see F. Stop Moonalice, Roadkill Moonalice, P. Bitch Moonalice, Technicolor Moonalice, Captain Moonalice, Chrispy Moonalice, 8-String Moonalice and many other chiefs.
