What makes for a happy Underscore Orkestra?

This man.

Meet Jay Bird. He's been working at a diner called Fincastle in Greensboro, North Carolina since it opened in 2005, but don't let the opening date fool you. This place is as legit as any birthed in the 50s, and it's got something special. Jay Bird's got an extensive collection of old Soul tracks, and when you order your food, be it a grilled cheese with a side of fries, a Finburger with their trademark "Come Back" sauce, or their token "Green Drink," which god really knows what it is, but it's fucking delicious, you can pick from any of his collection, and he will personally serenade you. We're talkin' he's channeling his inner Barry White while writing down some weird diner code on his pad of paper and rocking his dirtied red apron, singing to you as if you were his first love and this were some weird Soul musical from decades before the invention of Come Back sauce.

Here are some other tidbits from tour.

Asheville, Durham, and Greensboro, North Carolina.
