I’m still having trouble finding words to say about the Cafe Racer tragedy.
At least I can give you pictures of just a little bit of the near-citywide outpouring of grief, condolence, and mutual support.
The above images are from last Thursday afternoon.
The following are from Sunday evening, when the weekly jazz jam session went ahead as scheduled—in the alley between the cafe and the Trading Musician music store.
For up-to-date word about memorial and benefit shows for the victims’ families and the one shooting survivor (taking place all around town, just about every day), go to caferacerlove.org.
Owner Kurt Geissel (who was not on the premises at the time of the shootings) has said he will reopen. Just when, he hasn’t decided yet.
