We had a big free city park get together on Hunter's birthday just this past weekend. Was a great time. John K band announced RH's birthday two into first set and before playing a song co-written by Hunter
I am not sure what the song should be called but we have been labeling it "Givin Me The Business".
Was great to hear... most of us had heard it before.

Very interesting that as soon as RH's birthday was announced we were witness to many, many huge ground strikes of pink lightning bolts while hundreds more struck white up in the clouds.
It was honestly more thunder than any of us could remember hearing in the state. I have never heard more rumbling but for monsoon season in the Indian tropics.
It was super intense for over an hour and at times seemed extremely dangerous!
Then it started to rain right after set break called. Big silver dollar sized drops pelted everything but did not hurt and was not cold. Made me think RH really has the "Keys to the Rain".

My personal trip is that upon realizing the weather could be a manifestation of RH's genius awareness of our birthday wishes and his song lyrics, "giving me the business in my own back yard", the rain stopped almost immediately. Within minutes the clouds poured away exposing a blood red moon that was bigger and redder than I've seen when not being in the presence of a Tibetan mediation master.
Was all very far out and remarkable. Was a fun birthday party for sure. Happy Bday RH and huge news his tour. We are psyched. Thanks
