My brother Ben on the left.

Poster for "The Creosote  Nightgown"
The files hold some alarming stuff. Take this handout for Ben's casino rock band in Lake Tahoe.  The hairdo —trust me—is a step up from his cruise ship white-boy fro. I am wondering what the playlist might have been. (Somewhere in the back depths of one of my scores of closets there will be a cassette tape.) You can be absolutely sure that it was a cover band.
  As for Blanca Uribe and the Creosote Nightgown, the band was a conceptual piece (ie total fabrication) by my college boyfriend. The far-out catchphrases should make carbon dating of this artifact a cinch.
