The worst moment of our tour so far:

switching into Beaumont Rag

Amy, Dave, and I are playing kazoo and being silly at the Toronto Island Dance, and we're ready to come out of that into Beaumont Rag.

This was very painful to listen back to the first time, but now each time through cracks us up.

Then the next night Audrey broke her new E string, in exactly the same place:

switching into Beaumont Rag again

We're not sure whether we should play this set again tonight...
