ApologetiX in Little Rock, Austin, Green Bay
Thu., Oct. 31. 2002 11:55pm EST

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

Howdy. I'm writing you this email newsletter in the band van on the way to Cleveland, where we will catch a plane way too early Thursday on our way to Little Rock AR. This is our first trip to Arkansas, and our fourth to the Austin area. Special thanks to Sherland and the folks at KNLE Candle 88, who play ApologetiX parodies so often.

Last Saturday's concert in Rockton IL sold 1200 tickets for 1100-seat venue (yeah, that's the new math) and was sold out the day before the show. Sorry to any of you who didn't get tickets in time. We've had similar situations in Austin before, so make sure you get your tickets ASAP!

4. NEWS FROM SOUTH AFRICA & THE PHILIPPINES

Here are two cool emails we recently received from ApologetiX fans abroad:

This afternoon one of our local stations, CCFM (a Christian station) aired your new CD Grace Period for the first time. Boy, did they give you exposure! The whole hour was just your CD - at least everytime I got into the car during that hour. It must be the only GP CD in South Africa - or at least the first. Well done guys! I still wish we could get you here! Regards Theo Marais and family Cape Town, South Africa

Dear Sir/s: Thanks for your music. I am teaching religious studies subject in Silliman University High School,Dumaguete City, Philippines. I played your music in my class and they were very much intrigued about it and your group. They enjoyed listening and interested to have copies of your CDs. Hope they kind find a store here where they can buy it. On my part, I learned to appreciate this kind of music through your work. Arnel Faller


5. VOTE FOR APOLOGETIX TO APPEAR AT CREATION 2003 (YOU COULD WIN FREE TICKETS!)

In 2000, ApologetiX played the main stage at the Creation East festival in Mt. Union, PA. Creation is the nation's largest Christian music festival, with a second festival, Creation West, being held later in George, WA. Held annually since the 1970's, Creation has featured virtually every major Christian artist at one time or another.

Now you have a chance to send us back to Creation and to win two free tickets for yourself. Simply fill out the ballot at http://www.itickets.com/contest/creation

Since 2000, we have been asked countless times when we'll return to Creation, and we've always replied, "If Creation asks what artists you'd like to see, mention us."

In the past week, we received this email from Creation Concerts, the organizers of the festival:

"The Creation Festival would like you to help us in the artist selection process for this year's Creation Festivals east and west. We need to know whom you would choose. Who would you like to see on the stages at Creation 2003?



"For helping us, by completing the survey, your name will be automatically entered in a drawing to win a pair of Creation Tickets for this year's festival. Please complete the survey by entering your information in all of the required fields. Then hit submit. Winners will be selected and notified by Jan. 1st."

Click here to go to Creation Festival Survey Page: http://www.itickets.com/contest/creation

The best thing about it is nobody can vote more the once, so there's no ballot box stuffing. And you can vote for 10 different artists in order of preference. And you won't have to write us in; they've already put us on the ballot.

Actually, in 1999, we asked our fans to write letters to Kingdom Bound and Creation and let them know they'd like to see ApologetiX. Both festivals were flooded with mail, and soon after, we were invited to play at both festivals.

We're closing in on 20,000 subscribers to this newsletter, so ApologetiX fans can definitely make a difference. If you have a moment, please go to http://www.itickets.com/contest/creation I did, and it took me about two minutes (the majority of the time was figuring out what 10 artists to choose). Thanks!

Apologetically,

J.
