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!

10. FOURTH OF JULY CD SALE

Yes, as we celebrate Independence Day here in the United States, we are preserving your freedom to take advantage of our cracked CD sale for at least another week!

We have a limited supply of CDs with cracked cases that we are selling at a greatly reduced price. All seven of our titles are available. All of the CDs and booklets are in perfect shape. The cases are in various degrees of disrepair, many are in near-perfect shape while a few don't even have cases, but all of them have the CD, the booklet and the tray card, so all you need is a CD case in good condition. I will autograph all of the CDs to help make up for the broken cases.

For a limited time only, we are making them available to our e-mail subscribers for $7 each. We are also putting our remastered "Have Yourself a Parody Little Christmas" six-song CDs on sale for a limited time for $7 each.
