[W]e hope you all read the New Yorker profile on pianist Helene Grimaud:
Whenever Grimaud can manage, she doesn’t perform at all: she is at a conservation center for wolves that she co-founded, in 1999, in northeast Westchester County, where she helps care for the animals. Grimaud does not relish the stiffness of the classical world. In a 2004 photograph of her, prized on the Internet, she is rehearsing with an orchestra wearing what looks like a wife beater; more recently, she apologized to a music reporter for showing up for an interview smelling of deer meat.
Later, she shows up to practice with her concert blouse in a paper sack! Seriously!

Nov 17, 1984, Black Flag & the Ramones play at the Hollywood Palladium [concert flyer]. In his concert review published by the Los Angeles Times, Craig Lee wrote the concert “shaped up as punk-rock happening of the year, first American punk band of the 70s meets LA’s Black Flag.”
