Biff 2012 | Out-guruing the gurus

Terrapin Crossroads, of course, is Lesh’s new venue/restaurant, a joint project he opened with his wife, Jill. It’s a small performance space coupled with a dining room, and it’s the cul mination of decades of dreaming and planning, as well as a nifty little retirement plan for the septuagenarian bassist.

Bloody interesting
The moment may or may not have been scripted, but you certainly appreciate it. You also appreciate how Swedish-born director Daniel Espinosa delivers harsh jolts a beat before you expect this car to smash into that car, or this character to calmly pull out a gun and murder that one.
