Pachter has a pretty interesting day
job - he films horse races at the Isle Casino. He agrees that it's a
cool gig, "except for the horse flies and horse shit." He promises Montage won't be smashing their instruments at this show, "because it's at Dada's y'know, antique house." He adds, "And we shall, of course, play our song 'Burrito' at the end of the gig, like every show."
Montage and Maddie Basser perform at Dada, 52 North Swinton Ave, Delray Beach, on May 18, from 11 to 2 a.m.
