¡Viva la revolución! You can hear the nervous rustle of those words through the ranks–simultaneously thrilling and terrifying. We’re definitely in the calm before the storm. The insurgents are waiting in backrooms and cellars, anxiously checking their watches and going over the plan in their heads, quizzing themselves on the details, wiping the sweat from their brow and urgently reciting their rosaries in silence.
- Guitar solo with distortion. (Too little and the people can’t hear the call to arms; too much and it’ll drown out the glory of the moment.)
After almost 2 years of fighting the good fight, we have a fantastic new album to show for it: A Single Revolution. We’re excited to officially debut the album next weekend in Tallahassee. We’ll be back at the Warehouse with some old friends, a banjo, and some new songs—more than one of them, FTIP (First Time In Public). We’ll also be joined by Eric Case, of Maida Vale who will open with a solo acoustic set.
Who: Sarah Mac Band featuring Leon Anderson with special guest Eric Case of Maida Vale
What: A Single Revolution Album Release Party
When: Saturday, October 30th, doors open 8:00, show begins 8:30
Where: Warehouse, 706 W Gaines Street, Tallahassee, FL
For those of you who have become accustomed to hearing us with percussion, no worries. As the Revolution has been a long time coming, I’ve been training for the day and have acquired the skills of bone playing. However, our stage on release night will be graced by the great Leon Anderson on drums and my percussion skills will no longer be needed. None the less, I have lately been listening to 30 Seconds to Mars’s new album This Is War and reading a quirky business strategy book called, Sun Tzu Was a Sissy: Conquer Your Enemies, Promote Your Friends, and Wage the Real Art of War which I think pretty much makes me an expert on revolutions. With this expertise, I can say most affirmatively that using rib bones for percussion is a valuable skill for any revolutionary to have as it is quite intimidating to your enemies, allowing them to see your complete disregard for what might make others fearful and uncomfortable . Please watch this informative video as a part of your training for the Revolution.
