Why is the man in that photo dressed like a French oil painter?

1) He left his cowboy hat at the cleaners?
2) He's trying to get to France ASAP and wanted to let his friends in Paris know he is "kitted up"?
3 better than a bag over his head..
4) A lot of musicians in Memphis dress like this during the summer. Not kiddin about that.
5) because he IS a French oil painter, at least on the current dog & pony "festival" circuit. I mean to say, some bands sell CD's, t shirts, I be selling oil portraits..
6)Qu'est-ce que ├ža peut te bub?

Next week: Crystal Lake Daze, in which the artiste' proves once and for all that he CAN chew gum, drink a Dark and Stormy Night and play 1-5 patterns in G..all at the same time!
This summer is getting long.

Probably French Canadian musicians. They like to visit Memphis in the summer to see where Jerry Lee Lewis recorded "French Fries an Gravy Stomp" for Sun Records. Did you know that Jerry Lee Lewis is a national hero in Quebec?

bass person obviously left out:
7) to show support and solidarity with visual artists, including the agrarian from semi upstate and the painter from SE Wisconsin as well as his own wife.

I think you have Jerry Lewis confused with Jerry Lee Lewis,

No, Jerry Lewis was made an honorary Yurpeen French monarch for his performance in The Nutty
Professor. Jerry Lee Lewis married Winona Ryder in England when she was only 13.

And then there was Shari Lee Lewis. She was a popular cajun ventriloquist/singer from Jeanerette, LA (Sugar City Shari they called her) and she dressed up in a Little Bo-Peep costume and played an accordian. As I recall her career was cut short when it was discovered she had co-starred in a low budget porn-comedy movie called The Slutty Professor which was directed by Jimmy Swaggart. Who, as things would have it, is Jerry Lee Lewis's cousin.

The "Love Parade".

Where the crowd was performing STOMP.

But here? More likely we'll see mass hysteria at the polls- unless a purported shortage will encourage the hoarders to pry their asses off the couch and do something positive for future generations.

the teabaggers like making crowds.
