I also played tunes before the show began, and during the intermission. (Apologies to anybody who came up to chat, and got snubbed: I should have had a sign, "The DJ only appears to be here right now. Please do not disturb."  Something like that.) At any rate, people have also asked after some of the songs played during those sets.  Here are a few of the nearly 100 that got played over the course of the five shows:

Blackbird by Dionne Farris
