The day of George Bush’s inauguration, BETTY tried to drink away their sorrows, then went over to Francesca Galliani’s roof and shot these photos against the heavy clouds hanging over Washington DC. The concert itself fell on Elizabeth’s birthday. After the show , she had a dismally anticlimactic surprise party. That was when BETTY made the rule to never play on another birthday unless a staggering amount of money was offered… or an incredible meal …or amazing sex.
