Back when hurricane Irene crawled up the east coast, the Flecktones were on the way to play a show in NYC on Governor’s Island. Our set time was excactly the same as Irene’s scheduled arrival. Gig canceled. We had a few days off after this gig anyway, so we looked for a city out of the path to wait out the storm. Burlington, VT seemed like a good choice. Well, Irene came through VT and dumped flooding rains. Our hotel of refuge was safe but the surrounding areas were hit. I holed up in my room for 4 days and played. A new looping tune was born. I’ll play it for you someday.
