There's a story out today about violist Joseph Eichenseer and his performance at Pamela Z's Longer Burning concert in San Francisco. Apparently, Eichenseer, aka JHNO and delicateear, was booed and heckled by audience members (one of whom is a fellow violist). In anger and frustration, he threw his viola down and left the stage.
Brian Rosen's blog has a fascinating account of the events, via Eichenseer and another audience member in attendance.
In unrelated news, this is a Heckelphone.
