Thanks Berryville!

The Bitter Liberals got the energy boosting sendoff we were looking for at the Barns of Rose Hill show Saturday night. Thanks to the 100 (or so) people who came! The house was full of love and the gig was a blast. Now we’re headed to the studio to make some more music.

Of special note, our resident sketch artist Joel Winstead was in the house and captured these pictures during the show.

Thanks Joel. We love your work, and we’re pleased that you come to so many of our shows.

We also got a nice picture of the show from Libby Pinner.

Behind the band, you can see the screen that we used to display photographs taken by Jack McGraw during the show. We projected one photo per song. Special thanks to Jack for sharing his excellent photography and for providing an interesting background for every song. (Great idea Allen.)

Amy Barley captured some bits as well.

Next week, we’ll post Jack’s photos with a set list so you can take a closer look at the pictures.

Here’s a video from the very end of the three hour show that features the end of our new song Karma. Feel that energy!

Art makes us happy. Music makes us happy.
