To fund his art, Serra started a furniture-removals business, Low-Rate Movers, and employed most of his struggling friends. For a while Philip Glass worked as his assistant, helping him install shows and lug furniture up and down the steps of brownstones.

Guardian Interview with Richard Serra

I saw them the first night they played in NYC and this is all completely accurate. (It was a great show.)

you mean there was an obese shrooming makeout/crying duo at your show too?

no, you only get that combo if you’re living in san francisco.

what about you ry? Ride fall through again?

The Dino Jr./MBV was on a school night in ‘91, so I couldn’t go… Show was in Atlanta.
