* MCats Gig 39: Thorpe’s Barn II

2012-06-16-17-59-42

Thanks to the Thorpe family for having us again at their annual backyard barn party! There were far fewer snakes in the well this year, and we successfully recreated last year’s epic photo (Jon on the left, Paul on the right). We were disappointed, however, that the police never showed up. Perhaps we were not loud enough. We’ll work on that. This year’s barn bash also featured the debut of the much anticipated Jessie’s Girl! See you next year!
