Bright Box Bits: The Bitter Liberals Open 2017

Well that was super fun. Our first show of 2017 at the Bright Box was one of our best—great audience, great sound, and lots of fun in the house. Thanks to all who came. Joel Winstead was in the house live sketching. Here are complete recordings of the two sets we played (unedited sound board […]

Richmond Road Kill

We had a great time in Richmond at the Tin Pan playing for a small audience. We’re used to packing the house in Richmond, so that part was a bit disconcerting, but really it was a great show. Thanks to all who came. We were psyched to debut a completely new song and play lots […]

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 […]

Dream of a Good Death in Union, WV: Bits from the Road

Clark Hansbarger’s Civil War show Dream of a Good Death was customed designed to be played in an old church in his boyhood home of Union, West Virginia.

More Fun at the Tin Pan: Videos and Pictures from Richmond

Ready for Richmond: Special Treat Coming Up

We also added multi-instrumentalist Charles Arthur to the mix. Charles played some mando, some dobro, and some banjo. You’ll love it! Pack your cases, it’s time for […]

Tally Ho Bits

And now for something completely different. The Tally Ho tacos were the best green room food ever. Silver Line Station played a nice set. There was a nice crowd.
