“The South End String Band, long branded the island’s gnarliest bunch of musicians after being 86’d from the Lights of Christmas and banned by the elementary schools for playing their roughneck  brand of drinking songs, gambling tunes, whoring ditties and murder ballads, are trying to clean up their image.  To that end, they are bringing in Janet Schweiger on the concert piano and Julie Campbell on the violin as guest musicians, proof, they claim, that they have a softer side.
You be the judge.  Beer and wine are available for those with delicate ears who require medicinal sound-blocking assistance and finger foods will be served for delicate eaters.” — 
Skeeter
