Upon reading Raul's answers below, we find ourselves left with a hankering for margaritas, more local history, and of course, lots more music...
What's been the most stand-out Penny Arcade show so far?
Ooh, hard to say. They’ve all had their own unique moments of radness. The 1 Year Anniversary Party with The Papercuts was awesome. The Sugar & Gold gig was nuts. LSD and The Search for God were pretty cosmic…But I’d have to say the first one in 2005 still resonates in my mind quite a bit. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years…We had the Bellyachers, Loquat, Patrick Abernethy, the Junior Panthers, Pat Johnson, and Nathan Moomaw perform…6 acts!…My pal Greg Morantz was DJing…I don’t think anyone went on stage sober…including myself. (We can vouch for that! -- SFist Leanne)
If Penny Arcade could transcend space and time, what would be your ultimate line-up of all time?
Aw man…lets see…Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem - you know the “Muppet Rock band”, The Banana Splits, The Monkees, and Fat Albert’s band…alright we’ll throw in Billy Bragg to politicize it a bit…hmm no. Ok…Seriously? I’d have to say Woody Guthrie, Silvio Rodriguez, Big Star and George Harrison.
Got any crazy stories that happened during Penny Arcade?
Pat Johnson was scheduled to play solo, but recruited enough musicians in the audience to play with a full backing band…even the sound engineer/musician, Chris von Sneidern, got into the action playing bass…rad times indeed. (Yep, that was awesome! -- SFist Leanne)
Lots more after the jump!
