Sonshine will be our only concert that weekend, because Karl's oldest sister, Lisa, is having her wedding reception the next day. She's also Keith's sister-in-law, so you know where our lead guitarist and bass player will be! Lisa was one of the original musicians in APNAB (Absolutely Positively Not A Band), the informal "group" that Karl and J. formed with original ApologetiX drummer Jeff Pakula back in 1990, a group that eventually morphed into ApologetiX.
