I was reading about the ongoing union protests at Chicago's Riviera Theatre and was linked from there to a great and blessedly lengthy profile of a rock venue manager who goes by the name of "Jolly Roger" dating from 2003. Wonderful snapshot of how he got into the industry, what he does, and being a father while working backstage.
