Notable: When the band played at Artscape 2003, the city made T-shirts with their name right near the names of headliners Al Green and Blues Traveler.

Quotable: Strukoff on the T-shirts: "We got all that we could get that were in our size that were left. The boys in the band went over and bought as many as they could. I still have three shirts, I think."
