August 30 & 31, 2008 Whiskey Jack’s, Big Sky, Montana Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw(August 30) According to Moonalice legend, the lands around here are home to a variety of unusual creatures. Our favorite is the Rocky Mountain River Hippo. Unlike its African counterpart, the River Hippo has adapted to survive in the mountains. First, they are equally happy in water and on land. Second, the hippos are indistinguishable from granite, which protects them from predators. Third, they are actually made of granite, which protects them from having to work, eat, or think. Some adventurers have discovered Rocky Mountain River Hippos covered in a green organic material similar to Polar Fleece, but mostly on the north side. If you come upon a Rocky Mountain River Hippo in the wild, be very quiet. This is especially true if you are white water rafting. You don’t want to wake River Hippo. Nobody knows what happens when one wakes up . . . and we don’t want to find out. (August 31) to Moonalice legend, the calendar is not fixed. It is a matter of personal choice. We bring this up because today (August 31) is Hardwood’s New Year’s Eve. He will be distributing party hats and noise makers after the show. We invite you to join us in celebrating with whatever organic material suits you best. M106 Listen to these shows now at Moonalice.com.
