One of my all-time favorite moments in Taco Shop history. We're at Mama's Tamales across the street from MacArthur Park in LA circa 2003. I'm doing my poem which I haven't really ever rehearsed with the band since my move to San Francisco a year prior, so this is essentially "wingin' it" already. Then just as I'm winding it up a lady jumps on one of the open mics and starts going off! To this day I have no idea what she was saying, but as she walked away she said "I love you!". I'm hoping that means she was blessing us somehow...the encounter was a blessing regardless. That's what TSP was all about...nothing more and nothing less.
