Things that happen during performances

Discovering that an audience of a good writers loves the poems in the Manuscript That No One Will Publish. "When is that book coming out? I can't wait!" cries one of the good writers excitedly. Hah.

The moment when a high school math teacher at the bar figures out that the mom from the parent-teacher conferences is also the fiddle player in the band. "Woah! I had no idea!"

Playing the last few bars of Neil Young's "Powderfinger" at the exact moment when David Ortiz launches his 500th career home run and the entire room erupts in cheers and the guitar player, in the middle of his end-of-song solo, gets very confused. "Wait. What? Who?"
