The Bitter Liberals Love Berryville

Wow. What an incredible audience. The 1.5.13 concert at the Barns in Berryville was a blast! We absolutely adore playing for you guys. We played the concert in memory of Mikey’s brother Frank.

Thanks to you, we sold out the venue (165 tickets in advance, 210 tickets sold plus guestlist attendees = 230 people or so). It was standing room only in the back of the hall. You guys purchased 60 CDs too, which will help us break even on the project. If you didn’t pick up your copy at the show, please buy one now!

Astute observers and big fans will note that the first set was a live performance of all thirteen songs from 13 in order. It was a long set, but a great joy to play the songs from the CD live.

Julie Kerby helped Chip Schutte introduce the band. She declared our music “sensitive big-boy music.” That seems about right to us!
