Moonalice poster by Chuck Sperry
According to Moonalice legend, Coos Bay is one of the terminus points of the Elevated Underground Railroad. The railroad emerged in the 60s, when it became clear that Moonalice agriculture might not be universally accepted in society. Moonalice farmers who ran afoul the law needed to make a quick getaway, and the Elevated Underground Railroad emerged to provide safe passage and relocation to open minded communities around the country. Coos Bay was one such community. We were reminded of this last night when Big Steve whacked a noisy compressor at the gig, which countered with a harassment suit. It was looking grim for Big Steve, but an engineer from the Elevated Underground Railroad came out of nowhere and saved the day. We are indebted to you.
According to Moonalice legend, on this day in the year 565, Saint Columba reported the first sighting of the Loch Ness Monster. We had it on good authority that the sighting occurred after Saint Columba’s first visit with the local Moonalice tribe. That was the saint’s first exposure to the blessings of hemp. As well as brownies, shrooms, and a primitive vaporizer. St Columba saw a lot of things that day, but Nessie is the only one anybody remembers.
According to Moonalice legend, Coos Bay is home to the world’s largest Douglas fir tree. To show respect for your tree, we have brought with us the world’s largest Howling Monkey truck. Your tree is taller, but our truck is louder. You should check it out after the show!
“When I heard that Moonalice was playing at The Green Spot in Coos Bay, Oregon on Saturday, August 22, 2009, I thought, let’s make a red, pink, orange and magenta poster. I guess that’s just how my contrary mind works. The warm colors also contrast the euphonious green spot which I also couldn’t resist. The Moonalice Series also celebrates it’s 200th poster.
Moonalice legend says that all work and no play makes Obama a dull boy, so on a wise wombat’s advice the President of the Free World found himself vacationing in another bright green spot on this big blue marble, Martha’s Vinyard, this very day, chipping golf balls and waiting for Tiger. The POTUS may have a long wait for Tiger – Mr. Woods has plans. Or as one might tweet: “Woke up, had breakfast, went back to sleep. Life’s good LOL, IMHO, OMG.”– Chuck Sperry
