HFQ headlined at the opening night of the 2004 CARNEGIE INTERNATIONAL in Pittsburgh, PA. The band serenaded all the fine artistes and patrons in attendance, including Robert and Aline Crumb (Crumb's work is featured in the exhibition). The band also made an appearance at Pittsburgh's coolest live music venue, CLUB CAFE. Trading our in our scrapple for lobster rolls, HFQ headed north to Camden, Maine, to give a concert at the CAMDEN OPERA HOUSE as part of the 2004 Pop!Tech Conference, where we feasted on the heady talk of the next Renaissance. Believe it!
