"Porn" at the open mic

I was down at the Pengilly’s Open Mic Night on Monday and Rebecca Scott was the host.   She announced from the stage that folks would be performing til midnight, but “please stick around because the barkeep will be pourin’ til 2 AM.”    Well, what my ears heard was that there would be “porn” til 2 AM, and I was truly frightened.  Most singer/songwriter types strive to bare their souls to their audiences, but this was gonna be too much.
I was imagining that the only thing between me and my audience was going to be a strategically placed dreadnought guitar.   And I REALLY wasn’t looking forward to watching the next performer on the list who was just getting out his ukelele with a very short strap.

    Yes, that could be a very distressing thought.
