To behold Dave Hawke onstage is the equivalent of cracking your eyes when the Ark of The Covenant is opened .  And then super-natural spirits rip into the most blistering rendition of "Wanted: Dead or Alive" you've ever witnessed.  Grandiose comparisons aside, make sure you hang in there with this episode past the bits on boob-flashing and Uranus for some brilliant words from Dave Hawke, a performer in his own class.
