OVERHEARD AT THE MERCH TABLE -- WEEK 5
Tour's over! Off for two weeks. Then the west coast run begins on June 1st.
- •"So this is Cat Stevens?"
- •Texan: "You don't have any other shirts?" Me: "No, we have one shirt." Very long pause. I help another customer. I turn back. "Did you want to buy something?" "I don't like the shirt." He walks away.
- •"Can I help you?" "No, I bought the sad dead mom one."
- •"I liked his beard. I wanted to caress it."Actual feedback left on our Sufjan merch Square account.
- •Sufjan, after soundcheck: "I need to get a small shirt. I can pay for it." Me: "If you payed, I'd just hand you back the money." He laughs. I hand him the shirt. Me: "These are selling really well." Sufjan: "I don't know why. They're so ugly."
