With "Hard Times are In Fashion," newly transplanted Lawrencian Rob Suchan finds the strongest Koufax lineup yet. Tim vonHolten tosses back a pint with Suchan, erstwhile ivory tinkler Jared Rosenberg, and newest members Rob and Ryan Pope, at the Bourgeois Pig on a chilly Spring evening. This episode features footage from Eudora's Black Lodge Recording and Jackpot Saloon in Lawrence. When The Boss penned "Dancing in the Dark," he probably wasn't thinking about Koufax, but when you hear their contagiously upbeat ditties of unbridled pessimism, you may find yourself frug-ing yourself over to the nearest molotov cocktail. Vive la revolution! Vive la Koufax!
