Gaspar’s to Schuba’s: Vertebrats to Aaron Lee Tasjan

Look at these two pictures. I’ve been looking for the one of me and my friends at Gaspar’s (which later became Schuba’s) and I finally came across it. It was after a Vertebrats show—I’m guessing 1981. Ileana is on the left, not sure who is next to her, and then Cathy Flynn next to me. I loved that pink shirt I’m wearing. We’re sitting right behind where Owen and company were when they got the pic with Aaron Lee Tasjan. Forty freaking years later. Wow, that’s how to make yourself feel old!

There’s something startling, but so wonderful about the symmetry.
