Peter & the Wolf beat gas prices, tour with eye-patch wearing pirate/DJ
Red Hunter likes going on adventures
"The most innovative solution we heard came from little-known indie act Peter and the Wolf. Though it started as a lark aimed at playing offbeat venues, the band's upcoming tour is turning out to be a petrodollar-saving stroke of genius. The group, along with the Castanets and singer Jana Hunter, are about to board a sailboat (pirated by an eye-patch wearing DJ from New York, they swear) that will take them up the Intracoastal Waterway--which runs along the East Coast between Boston and Key West, Florida--on a two-week tour. "It will be nice because that will be two weeks when we're not spending $3 a gallon for our van," said singer Red Hunter. "We're going to go mostly gearless and get off the boat in each town and walk or take a cab to the nearest venue and perform."
Man, I love Red Hunter.
