8. Upcoming Concerts

Thanks to all of you who packed the place in Janesville, WI; Green Bay, WI: and Martinsville (near Indy) IN this past weekend! You guys blew us away!

Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) sent Ginger Crouch and a cameraman from their WWJD program and filmed the second half of the Martinsville concert plus liners afterward. That was quite cool!

Special thanks to David and Debi Ashley, Jan Oettinger, and Rick Hoffman for organizing the concerts and to Greg Saunders (QFL 101 in Rockford IL), Kid Raider (Q90 FM in Green Bay), Scott Juvey (WEMI in Appleton WI) and Mike Stankovic and Jammin' Jim Surman (WFHB in Bloomington IN) for playing ApologetiX and doing interviews to promote the shows.

Rick Hoffman sent us this e-mail as a follow up to the Martinsville concert:

"You guys did such a great job that some people are already pressuring me to bring you right back. As you know, I just do what God tells me, every time I try to do something, it just falls flat. I call it Űriding the wave' that God puts out there for me. When I step off or try to do some tricks, I just get wet. However, I will try to put a bug in the ear of our local fair people and I hope something would come of it. Oh, and by the way, some after effects are already occurring here. Our Associate Pastor received a few calls already and they are going to form a Youth Pastor Association (or something like that) in order for them to do more combined activities in the area."


1. THIS SATURDAY: APOLOGETIX AT THE PHILADELPHIA SPECTRUM

This Saturday, we get to play a concert at the fabled Philadelphia Spectrum after the Philadelphia Kixx soccer game. (You gotta like a team that has an "ix" near the end of its name, right?) Thanks for those of you who have been praying for us. We just got this encouraging e-mail from Tim "Timmy D" DeMoss, the morning guy at WZZD, who is spearheading the project:

"Hey, good news...ticket sales have gone from around 100 (as of 10 days ago) to over 500 now (specifically for the concert). The Kixx are thrilled, and so are we...."

Saturday, March 2 - Game at 7 p.m. (ApologetiX show after game at about 9 p.m.)
Ticketed Event $14 and $15
First Union Spectrum Stadium Philadelphia, PA
"PHILADELPHIA KIXX" Soccer Game
Contact: WZZD- Tim DeMoss 610-828-6965 x12 OR
888-888-KIXX (5499)

FYI, the Kixx tix are $12 (discounted from $18; groups are normally $14, so that $12 price is extra cheap and the only price they're offering).


2. THIS MONDAY: YOU AND APOLOGETIX ON TV?

We're going to be taping another two shows for Cornerstone Television's nationally broadcast "His Place" program on Monday, March 4. I'm guessing the episodes will run later that week.

As I suspected, the show's host, Jeff Redinger, has once again issued an invitation to all ApologetiX fans who'd like to be part of the studio audience:

"Just like last time...the more, the merrier. Can't have too many as long as they understand that they may not get to be on the set for part of either show ... we will have chairs off set for them again."

ApologetiX will perform two songs on the first show. The second show will feature all ApologetiX, including three or four songs. We had a great crowd when we did the shows in the summer and fall of 2001. As usual, we'll be performing songs "live" and doing some interviews. "His Place" is filmed in a diner format, and they need people to fill the booths. They will also take people for off-stage, just to make crowd noise. Last time we had such a large studio audience that I felt like we were doing "We Are the World" or "All You Need is Love."

If you'd like to come, you're invited. In case you don't know, "His Place" is filmed in Wall, PA, near Monroeville (near Pittsburgh) off Rt. 48. You can also use mapblast.com, mapquest.com, or yahoo maps for directions. The official address is: Cornerstone Television, 1 Signal Hill Dr., Wall PA 15148-1499.

If these shows are like the previous ones, the filming would start at 9:30 p.m. and probably be done by 11 p.m. You should plan to arrive around 9 p.m.., but not before 9 p.m., because you'll be sitting around. If you arrive after 9:15 p.m., they can still probably get you in the studio, but after 9:30 p.m., that will be troublesome.

It's helpful if you call or e-mail first, so they know to expect you, although you can still come if you forget to call. Please call 412-824-3930 and ask for anyone in the "His Place" department. If no one is in, the receptionist should be able to help you. You can also e-mail to Jeff at JRedinger@ctvn.org


3. NEXT WEEKEND: APOLOGETIX IN AUSTIN TX AND PITTSBURGH PA

4. "THE REAL SMOOTH SINGER" CONTEST

In preparation for next Friday's ApologetiX concert, KNLE in Austin TX is sponsoring "The Real Smooth Singer Contest."

On Saturday, March 2, KNLE will hold an audition at Calvary Chapel Austin located between Runburg and Rutland on Parkfield from 5 to 7 pm. On a first-come, first-served basis, contestants (this could be you) will perform the ApologetiX song "The Real Sin Savior" for panel of judges from KNLE and HM Magazine.

Two finalists will be chosen to perform at the Apologetix concert Friday, March 8, where they will compete for a prize package including all six ApologetiX CDs, an ApologetiX t-shirt, a year's subscription to HM magazine and an HM t-shirt.

Special thanks to HM Magazine, Your Hard Music Authority. For more information, please call 512-257-8881.


5. MORE ON LAST WEEK'S ARTICLE ABOUT STEVEN TYLER & MICK JAGGER

Thanks to Ken DeVries who pointed out to us that the Steve Beard article I quoted last weekend about rock stars like Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger, Bono, etc. came from "850 Words of Relevant", brought to you by www.relevantmagazine.com .

Ken says the magazine is a "great resource that is finding opportuniites and appearances of God in places most Christians would not expect (like who would've thunkit for Alice Cooper?). In this way we all have greater opportunities to challenge the culture and its consumers with what THEY are familiar. And it sure beats separation behind a protective wall, as some Christians say we need to do."


6. LONG-DISTANCE INFORMATION: MEMPHIS TENNESSEE

I found out that Barbara Thompson and her crew drove nine hours from Memphis TN to see us at our show in Camdenton MO. Here's what she had to say:

"We came to Camdenten to see ApologetiX! And that is the only reason. I am so sorry that I didn't hang around to talk to you guys! You were so involved with the kids and I didn't want to horn in on their time. I am sending info about ApologetiX to a couple of youth directors that I know ... one in Billings Montana and the other in Humboldt, Tennessee. I'd love to see you come to Millington, TN ... our home ... I'll be talking to our YD, too. I like many songs from each of your CDs, but to this point my favorite overall CD is Spoofernatural. You should see this 50 year old trying to learn all the lyrics! I pray for traveling mercy as you travel and that you would continue to seek God's will. You are all so talented and God loves it when we use our gifts for His Glory. It has to be hard on your families at times, so am also praying for them as you travel. "

Barbara Thompson Millington, TN


7. WHAT DO WE THINK WE'RE DOING?

We get asked from time to time if a serious song can be considered a parody and conversely, if we feel parody is an appropriate way to convey the truth of the Gospel. So, as the lyricist for the band, I wanted to share my thoughts with you on that subject. According to my Webster's dictionary, a parody is "a literary composition in which the form and expression of serious writings are closely imitated but adapted to a ridiculous subject or a humorous method of treatment; a burlesque imitation of a serious poem."

In ApologetiX, we attempt to closely imitate literary compositions and adapt them to a subject that seems to the world to be ridiculous. Of course, to the members of ApologetiX, that subject matter is not ridiculous. However, we are well aware when we perform these parodies, that the world sees the mix of secular rock and roll (primarily hedonistic) mixed with religion as ridiculous. Also, many of our parodies are indeed humorous, and even ones that I didn't intend to be humorous, are humorous to some audiences, because people seem to find something inherently funny in a rock song being used for religious purposes.

Now, back to the second part of that parody definition ... "a burlesque imitation of a serious poem." Burlesque is defined by the same dictionary as "tending to excite laughter by ludicrous images, or by a contrast between the subject and the manner of treating it." That word take me back to a pastor who had us play a concert at his church in the mid-90's, but called the story of Jonah a "burlesque" when he talked to us after the concert, and he thought of our song "Jonah Jonah" as a burlesque. And he liked that. Obviously, we don't think of the story of Jonah as a burlesque. We believe it's a true story. But that pastor seemed to think he was so much smarter than people who take the Bible literally and he seemed more worried about the value of the antique stained-glass windows in his church than he did about the message of the Gospel. We felt like undercover agents in his church. I think if he had realized how seriously we believed the Bible, he never would have allowed us in!

But I digress. In keeping with the definition of burlesque, there is a strong contrast between the subject of our parodies (religious matters ˇ I hate the word religious, but that's how the world classifies it, and they're the ones who judge parody) and the manner of treatment (serious rock and roll songs). Prime example: The idea of using an Eminem-type song for an altar call, as we did in "The Real Slim Shady." That is a ludicrous image to the majority of the population.

Here's how the U.S. Supreme Court defined parody in their landmark ruling that opened the door for what we do: "The germ of parody lies in the definition of the Greek parodeia, quoted in Judge Nelson's Court of Appeals dissent, as Űa song sung alongside another.' 972 F. 2d, at 1440, quoting 7 Encyclopedia Britannica 768 (15th ed. 1975). Modern dictionaries accordingly describe a parody as a Űliterary or artistic work that imitates the characteristic style of an author or a work for comic effect or ridicule,' [n.12] or as a Űcomposition in prose or verse in which the characteristic turns of thought and phrase in an author or class of authors are imitated in such a way as to make them appear ridiculous.' [n.13] For the purposes of copyright law, the nub of the definitions, and the heart of any parodist's claim to quote from existing material, is the use of some elements of a prior author's composition to create a new one that, at least in part, comments on that author's works. See, e. g., Fisher v. Dees, supra, at 437; MCA, Inc. v. Wilson, 677 F. 2d 180, 185 (CA2 1981). If, on the contrary, the commentary has no critical bearing on the substance or style of the original composition, which the alleged infringer merely uses to get attention or to avoid the drudgery in working up something fresh, the claim to fairness in borrowing from another's work diminishes accordingly (if it does not vanish), and other factors, like the extent of its commerciality, loom larger. [n.14] Parody needs to mimic an original to make its point, and so has some claim to use the creation of its victim's (or collective victims') imagination, whereas satire can stand on its own two feet and so requires justification for the very act of borrowing."

Note that the word parody actually comes from the Greek for "a song sung alongside each other." You'll also want to note that the parody can either be making a commentary on the substance or the style of the original. As you know, our songs always spoof the rhyme scheme of the original as closely as possible, commenting often on the substance and always on the style, showing that we are in effect poking fun at the original work, whether we do so with a serious subject matter or not.

In effect, at the bottom of every ApologetiX song, there is this message: "You know, with a few modifications, almost anything, even seemingly formerly profane things, can be used to glorify God." To me, it's like Balaam's donkey; God sometimes has a humorous way of delivering the message (Now, you know that God surely realized that the world would find that story funny as it was passed down through the ages), but that doesn't make the message any less true. Or as we say, "Just because it's funny doesn't mean it isn't true." And just because it isn't knee-slapping funny doesn't mean it isn't a parody, either.

Although we are dead serious about our message, we are presenting it in a humorous way. Jesus presented truths of the Gospel, including the message of salvation and the finality of judgment, with parables ˇ some of them very amusing when you look into the context of the society in which they were presented ˇ and it must have seemed to the religious establishment of his day as almost profane to take such glorious religious principles and lower them to the status of word-picture stories that even the common people could understand. But Jesus knew that the medium was effective. And that's why we do what we do.
