      Northampton, MA, the Scientific Americans (SciAms) and the Chet Dragon Orchestra.  For two final blissful numbers, the two bands jammed together.  (Cover of "Submission" and a polka SciAms front man Jim Whittemore wrote for the occasion, "The Dead Cat Polka".)  Seeing the kid from the CDO on accordion pogoing in his powder-blue suit was worth the admission right there.
