J. Jackson, lead singer for ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) here.

Friday After Next: Return to Pittsburgh - SOLD OUT 5. Saturday After Next: Second Pittsburgh Show Just Added 6. 50-Year Old Couple Travels 400 Miles to See ApologetiX 7. Father's Four Kids Learn With ApologetiX 8. Upcoming Concerts



Sorry to those of you whom I mistakenly told (in the most recent newsletter) that our concert in Clinton MO was going to be last Friday. It was Saturday, of course, which it said later in that same newsletter, and enough people must have known better ... because we had a FULL house ó a sold out 1,500-seat venue! You Missouri (and Kansas) people are something else! Thankfully, we had a video crew there to capture it all on film, including a camera on a 30-foot boom crane, so you may get to see some footage from that show one of these days, whether you were there or not.

We also plan to film the Cranberry PA show at the end of this month with a video crew, and that one's sold out now, too! Hey, maybe we should film all of our shows, eh? Then again, no sooner did we schedule a video crew for that Clinton show last Saturday than I caught some sort of cold or flu, so I had to struggle through all that while the cameras were capturing it all for posterity :) Anyway, to handle the overflow from the sold out Cranberry show, we've added a second show at the same venue the following day (March 1). For details, see below.

ApologetiX Homecoming Concert, Pt. 2 As mentioned above, the Friday show sold out with three weeks to go, so we've added this second concert. We expect to see all our family and friends from the 'hood at this concert, two miles from Karl's farm. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and it will most likely sell out, too, so get your ticket soon, and get there early! This concert will most likely sell out before the day of the event, please call to reserve your tickets before traveling ;)


6. 50-YEAR-OLD COUPLE TRAVELS 400 MILES TO SEE APOLOGETIX

We got this extremely cool email after our concert in Missouri this past Saturday ...

"I just wanted to take a moment and send a few words of encouragement for you and your group...After the concert in Clinton, Mo. I kept thinking of how "Jesus is a doer" and you guys are following suit and are "doer's" also. You know, when you do for others, that sort of thing. You are reaching a diverse group and it may surprise you to know that my husband and I traveled 400 miles to listen, watch and understand that the word of God is revealed in many ways. We are in our 50's and we thought the concert was great and we are encouraged by your message.

My husband first came to a ApologetiX concert in January of '02 at Hays Kansas and purchased all the CD's that were available. Little did we know that for the next 3 months we would be setting inside an ICU unit with a loved one who loved oldies music. Your music is inspiring, keep up the hard work, thanks, Jesus loves you."

Linda Artz Phillipsburg, KS

Thanks, Linda!


7. FATHER'S FOUR KIDS LEARN WITH APOLOGETIX

As a father of two little girls myself, this email really made me feel great!

"My children love the songs, and my two oldest daughters (ages 9 and 7) ask for the lyric sheets every time I put one of your CD's in the player. My five-year-old son loves "Cornelius", and my two-year- old daughter sings "Baa Baa We're Lambs" with all her might. They are constantly asking questions about the Bible stories behind the songs, what an incredible way to learn. I am very impressed by your music and your ministry. Thank you for all you do. Keep serving the Lord."

In Christ,

Ed Scilex Tampa, FL

Awesome, Ed!
