When I saw Nil Lara (you know Nil, right?) at The Belly Up Tavern here in
Solana Beach (gorgeous; curved wooden ceiling, small venue, got in free :)
the opening act, a local band called Burning Bridges, had really posh
equipment. Then Nil and co. came out, wearing marvelously ugly shirts (one
Jack-in-the-Box, one 7-Eleven, one McDonald's) and from where I was sitting,
we got to see all the equipment hidden behind the wrap-around speakers. His
lead guitarist's pedal was a homemade thing of wires and stuff jammed into a
Spam can. It was beautiful.

And the show was absolutely the most passionate musical event I've ever
