Your TCD Editorial staff found this dispatch, like a signal from a jam-band-packed corner of outer space, buried at the bottom of the email heap upon arrival at the office this morning. Sounds like quite a time. We’ve also taken the liberty of bringing you highlights from Howie’s Twitter feed, so you can enjoy the madness, even if you’re not the Twittering kind. Enjoy. -Ed.
