The Identity of the Mysterious Captain Murphy Was Revealed Last Night
... Flying Lotus. Cue mass eruption. So much so that Nocando shouted yet again, "We don't want to end up on the news. CONTROL YOURSELVES."
The warning wasn't necessary, because the crowd thinned after FlyLo left. Shame, because they missed Pac Div, the trouble-beset trio who just released their new album, GMB. We'll give Flying Lotus a little bit of a break since it was his first time performing as a rapper, but Pac Div put on such a polished, party-starting performance, my friend turned and said, "I wish they had come on earlier."

Personal bias: I'd rather dance than bob my head.
The crowd: Regulars, but also, as Nocando said, plenty of "looky-loos."
Random notebook dump: Two tall freaky-fashionista types were being followed and filmed dancing, and then they got the bouncer to pretend to throw somebody out. Anyone know what that was all about?
