ApologetiX in New York, Las Vegas
Thu., May. 22. 2003 11:06pm EDT
J. Jackson, lead singer for ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) here.
Thanks to everybody who came to see us in Lansdale PA (near Philly) last Friday! Here's a little trivia for you: the photos at the center of the "Keep the Change" CD booklet were taken at a concert in Lansdale PA. In fact, the guy who took those photos, David Porter, was also at Friday's concert, taking more photos. Thanks, Dave!
Thanks to all of you who have been asking about how my wife, Lisa, is doing with her pregnancy. The baby is due October 5, and we just had a sonogram this week, and everything looks healthy. Praise the Lord for that! Our little Heather will turn one year old this Friday, so those two are slated to be about 16 months apart! Our oldest child, Janna, will celebrate her seventh birthday shortly after the birth of the new baby. Thank you all for your prayers. We greatly appreciate them!

4. NOW YOU CAN HEAR AND REQUEST OUR NEW SINGLE
As we've mentioned already, we just released our third single from "Grace Period," a remix of "How You Rewind Me," which sounds a little different than the one on the CD. We rerecorded the vocals to give them a harder rock edge and the music is a little tighter, although the single retains the lyrics and the feel of the original parody. We sent the new mix to radio last week, so your local Christian rock station should have their copy now.
If you'd like to hear more ApologetiX on your local Christian rock station, please go to the website below, where you can get your own free MP3 copy of the "How You Rewind Me" remix, and get info on how to contact your local station to request it.

5. APOLOGETIX AT CROSSOVER IN MISSOURI - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Last June, ApologetiX had the privilege of playing Spirit FM's Crossover festival at the Lake of the Ozarks in Camdenton MO, along with other artists like Rachel Lampa and Mercy Me. This June, we have been asked to return. Mercy Me will be there again as well, along with 4 Him, Phat Chance, Riley Armstrong, By the Tree, Paul Colman Trio, SuperChic[k], Skillet and Rebecca St. James.
As you can see, Crossover has no shortage of great Christian artists. What they do have is a shortage of great Christian volunteers. I know a lot of people who volunteer at festivals like this as a way of getting into a festival they otherwise might not be able to afford to attend, and my experience with festivals is that they understand, and they just plain appreciate having the help! So, if you're interested, here's the link to apply:

7. AMAZING $7 CD SALE STILL GOING STRONG

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, some are in near-perfect shape while some 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.
