The Bitter Liberals Come Home: Barns of Rose Hill Bits 9.29.18

Before the Bitter Liberals show. The Barns of Rose Hill stage and lots of instruments.

The Bitter Liberals played to a packed hometown crowd of 170 people at the Barns of Rose Hill Saturday 9.29.18. What a blast! We also released a new CD “now more than ever” about which more in future posts.

Here are some pictures and videos from the show taken by Amy Barley and Michael Hobert. Thanks for coming out to see us and listening to our new music!

We played all eleven songs from the new record. including “Learn By Falling,” a new song by Allen Kitselman.

Clark Hansbarger’s new song “Finger in the Air,” is another cut off the new record.

As you can tell from the videos, the show was fun for all involved. The audience was fantastic.

One highlight of the evening was having previous band member Mike Jewell join us on stage to sing harmony on two songs. Mikey’s sweet harmony is something not to be missed.

The Sixth Liberal joins us onstage.

At the end of the first set, we introduced our new political anthem “People Gonna Rise Up.” This song by Allen Kitselman pretty much says it all. During the song, audience members were treated to the great paper towel incident. Though, as usual, there are no clear pictures of our bass player Michael Rohrer available, we assure you that the paper towel idea was Michael’s!

Here is a complete version of the song People Gonna Rise Up from the new record

The best part of playing at the Barns of Rose Hill is seeing all of our good friends in the audience. Thanks again for coming out.
