Comment on this artwork

In those days, we were at the Turf every day. In the painting is Jerry (R.I.P.) the bartender, Vicki and Dave by the bar, Rob Rule on stage, owner Mark (at the time) at far end of bar, Riley in the kitchen, and I'm not sure who I put at the table. It's me in the foreground, lining up a shot on the unseen pool table. Rolling Rock beer bottles and SPMC Calendar (Saint Paul Music Club) are visible.

Thanks to Rich Mattson for recently digging up an old SPMC Calendar from April of 2000. I've put a copy of that calendar image up here. Here in April of 2000, the fully contingent of Turf Bands played. Many of us were probably up at the Turf way too much, but Raleigh and her fantastic tacos made sure we got some fuel in us to dilute the Summit Pale Ale and PBR if we were broke. For posterity and searching folks, here are the bands and shows listed on this calendar:
