ApologetiX in NC, KY, MI, WI, TX, KS, MO
Wed., Jul. 2. 2003 11:05pm EDT
J. Jackson, lead singer for ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) here.
Thanks to all of you who came out to see us in Kentucky, Wisconsin and New Mexico last week! It was fun to be back there. Karl told somebody it was our "Three Keys" tour (i.e. KentucKEY, MilwauKEY and AlbuquerKEY) , which I thought was quite clever. Please don't email us with your spelling corrections :)
This weekend, we make our first trip as a band back to North Carolina since the Shout 2001 festival. For you trivia buffs, my first trip to North Carolina as a solo artist was a trip to Nagshead and Kitty Hawk when I was 10.
Saturday, we'll be in Mayfield, KY, the hometown of my lovely wife, Lisa. No, we're not playing at a backyard barbeque; the city actually wanted to book ApologetiX. That's very cool ... as will be our 15-passenger van ... at least it had better be. We just had to spend about $1,000 to get the air conditioning fixed, and that's not the first time we've had it worked on :)
People who attend either of this weekend's concerts should get a rare treat: three ApologetiX drummers in one place. Not only is our beloved Bill flying in from Canada, where he's been on vacation with his family, former ApologetiX drummers Bob Flaherty (1995-98 and on "Ticked") and Fred Behanna (1991-01 and on "Biblical Graffiti" and "Spoofernatural") will be along for the ride. That will be fun.
I read this quote on drummers recently from Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction, talking about the first Lollapalooza: "Drummers - I don't know if you know this, but they usually get along famously, especially a gang of them in a traveling festival."
Of course, it helps in ApologetiX we always choose the nicest, friendliest, fun-loving, God-fearing guys! Anyway, come out and meet them all this weekend!
