Fri, July 29: Another reason to celebrate this year’s seventh month was that it contained five (5) complete weekends of FridaySaturdaySundays—what better reason for hearing songs based on math. For the final July series, we asked our guests to bring their favorite quantities of something to share, so we got one keg of beer, two bowls of guacamole, three bags of chips, four calling birds, etc.

You can always count on Green Man to produce an entertaining evening, so what follows is that night’s list of melodies, played in numerical order:
