An upscale department store, Holt Renfrew, was one such nook. My two take-aways from that experience:
- The enjoyable performance Jane Bunnet and Hilario Duran delivered to an appreciative audience; and
- Holy mother fuckity-fuck, are you serious that the pretty skirt I saw on sale for an incredible 75% off or something like that was originally priced at many hundreds of dollars, so even at 75% off, it was absurdly expensive? It wasn't as if the materials or colors or design warranted such a grotesque price; I can't even remember what it looked like. I confess that this sort of profligate commerce offends my plebeian sensibilities.
Below is a piece by Jane Bunnet and Hilario Duran at Holt Renfrew:
Setting aside the channeling of my malcontent Irish forebears who likely shook their fists impotently against the robber barons .... Jane Bunnet and Hilario Duran ... they were a fresh musical breeze to whisk away the cares of the world.
