“Where are your times?” he sang near the band mates of tune at
Joe’s pub on Tuesday question, and then answered it himself.
“Your moment is nowhere but here.” He didn’t mean to seem

I am here,” Mr. Mota offered later in the question, his nights
trailing behind him. “That I am here,” he sang again, several
shows beyond.
