Casino Carpets of Nevada -- pictures I meant to take and didn't.

The Vista IV lay it down. "First Thursday," about halfway between South Main and the Strip. Tolagson and I stood in the cold for over two hours in order to catch both sets of tasty surf covers, modern pop tunes chopped and retooled as postmodern 60s spy show themes ("Billie Jean" & etc.) and punchy, stop-and-go originals. Think of Jack Womack or Mark Mothersbaugh fronting the Rodney Graham Band and you won't be far off. Near the end of the proceedings we both spotted Michelina -- our Michelina! -- playing energetic air bass, while her long-suffering parents lounged nearby, cradling a shivering Jack Russell terrier between them. A very strange conclusion to an evening of culture far from home.
