(The Rat Bastard at Tom Smith's pre-b'day dinner, Decatur, April 8, 2006. The drinks hadn't quite kicked in, but the heroin suppositories were beginning to tickle.)
(Rat, ready for another keg run, sometime between 1:00 and 3:00 AM, April 9, 2006.)
(Rat records the next nine Squelchers albums while Brent - later punctured in a traffic mashup - lunges for the mortar and pestle. April 9, 2006.)

(Rat talks to Ben Wolcott while TS, shell-shocked, recovers stage right from a brutal roasting. Decatur, April 8, 2006, just a block north west from the old Microgroove studio compound.)
