Dream of a New Death: Civil War Show at the American Theater

The American Theater in Hampton, VA is a beautiful performance center with excellent acoustics. The Bitter Liberals played a Saturday show for an appreciative audience. Road trip!

The Civil War show (as we call it) involves the presentation of a few slides setting context followed by a song inspired by the situation. High concept. And it works like a charm since Clark Hansbarger is such an engaging narrarator.

Side benefits of a road trip to the American Theater include the best greenroom ever!
