In followup to my post a few days ago, for KaiBorg's concert this weekend at UCSD, I added the following to our contract/tech rider:
1 Large bowl of blue M&Ms, vegan
2 Warm towels soaked in water from Lourdes
The vegan M&Ms were of course a nod to Van Halen, and the towels a riff on a request I received from an artist (who shall remain unnamed) for a concert at our series in Ventura City Hall.
The concert manager's reply to me included the following:
"btw, you didn't mention if you'd like your M&Ms de-shelled. I'll prepare both just in case."
I presume that means the towels are no problem...
