One evening, in the University City Loop Phil and Merferd were fortunate enough to meet a gifted Kurdish musician. He was playing near Ranoush, a Middle Eastern/Syrian restaurant. The restaurant had been damaged during the recent protests. And the Merferd and Ranoush trolley peace train picture was still covering the broken glass front doors.
As you watch him playing, the camera moves to the restaurant. Merferds are covering part of the restaurant. That part of the restaurant was damaged when protesters took to University City, Missouri a few weeks earlier.
We are honored that he'll be performing before the documentary "The Man Behind the Merferds," November 10th and 11th as the doors open at 6:00, at a place of many peoples and nations "New City South."
The Bucket truck didn't work today so Phil and Merferd didn't either. They had more and more fun not working. They were in down town Ferguson, driving along -- Carson's mom was JUST telling him about Merferd when Carson spotted us!
Phil did one box and three more Fergusonians made four new friends. We all knew of Merferd! Second day the tree truck is broken down, but Phil and Merferd don't care! Outside of the Aldis of course.
