Zarathustra came from somewhere in Jimmy Valadez and Lynn Kozak's minds. Lynn and JJ organized this construed advertising campaign, full of posters and collages touting Zarathustra but remaining a mystery. The whole idea was to have a festival of art and music, trying to get many people from our school to submit any works of art or poetry they had laying around...or might create just for the festival. So, for the music part of the festival, Lynn asked if the racing pisshorses would play, the musical entertainment for the evening. And, of course, after consulting the other pisshorses, I said we'd love to do it. We spent the night before hanging out and working on songs, then recorded and rehearsed in the studio for a good part of the Saturday of the show. While we were playing in the auditorium, the rest of the art show was taking place near the Pillow Wall. Folks contributed photography, paintings, sculptures, collages, poetry, and even painted new works while others were viewing in the gallery by the Hamster Ball. We tried to make our set as exciting as possible, both musically and visually. It was damn loud on stage, but you could FEEL the music, and we could hear each other. Musically, it was a pretty exciting show (except for a few screw-ups). We had two pillars on either side of the set, one for love, one for death (one, a beautiful uncertainty, the other the only indisputable fact of life).

The show was filmed by two different camera people, which gave us much footage for editing. Oh, the show was free to anybody who happened to drop by.
