Hercules the Lesser spent the morning fretting over to things; his cowlick and his feelings for Janice Coraopolis.
Hercules the Greater was more excited. Tonight, would be his solo guitar debut in front of an audience at the gazebo in an afternoon concert.

Booger Wilson was in charge of setting things up and breaking them down.
Miss Kravitz was going to accompany the fireworks with Coltrane at sunset. Everyone would be sitting in the grass facing up in the night sky.
