Re: JBC LA show

My story is similar. It was my first JBC show. I too was wearing a Jazz Butcher T-shirt (although I had to make it myself). The show was excellent and the encores of "Skinheads" and "Roadrunner" were great. In the brief time I asked Pat for an autograph he said I was "mad" for traveling from NY to see his show. It was worth the trip and I can't wait to see him in NY too!
If you want to see the autograph it is on my JBC "variations" page: http://home.earthlink.net/~monkeeman/jbcsongs.htm
I saw only one person taking photos (and she only took two that I could tell). If anyone has any LA show pictures, please post them so we can all see 'em. Big thanks.
