    Judging from the music sheet in panel 2, he was actually doing a mighty fine job.
    Shame he got too FIRED up, now he'll be feeling BURNED out all evening. At least everyone knows he BLAZE the violin very well.

    I'm also worried about some FRICTION with the theater owner. I hope he doesn't RUB them the wrong way and get FIRED.

    (What material are those strings made of anyway? Even that trumpet-thing is in flames...)

    @Ephesus You mean the tuba or the trombone?

    Oh, so close! Up until the last panel I thought he might actually pull it off!

    (Yeah, I know it caught fire in panel 3, but hey - Jimi Hendrix!)

    @jprime I think Ephesus is referring to the trombone, although I'm in agreement with him that it looks like an odd-looking trumpet.

    Seeing this one, I'm reminded of the Charlie Daniels song, "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" and especially the line, "He came upon this young playing the fiddle and playing it hot."

    You know, I am sensing a pattern with these guys, involving fire...

    @jprime @MviluUatusun
    TBH I meant the tuba, but looking back, the trombone and the cymbal are burning too. I can understand the harp since its frame seems to be wooden; but c'mon, brass?

    @Antarian_knight
    I guess they need to CHILL and think nICEly, rather than pick a career in the HEAT of the moment?

    That's the "orchestral burning in the dark" playing "Enola gay" XD

    Takes the phrase "playing it hot" a bit literally.

    Yep... definitely a "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" moment... or did somefur bring a flammenwerfer 41 to a fiddle fight?

    And be thankful they didn't play the 1812 Overture... O_o
