We’ve been busy working on albums and are very excited for what’s to come. But we’ll get to that later. I want to talk about this little show called Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater’s production of BBAJ opens tonight at the Amato Theater, 56 Mont Vernon Street, Milford, NH. Doors open at 7:30, show starts at 8. The whole band is in on this. Nat, Tom and I are in the show and Tim is sound designer and live engineer. Yup, we’ve dragged Tim into the world of musical theater.
So, what’s it about? BBAJ is a satirical “punk” rock musical about Andrew Jackson’s rise to presidency. What can you expect? Blood. Foul language. Rock. Antics. And though it’s over-the-top funny, it tackles some serious shit from our nation’s history that is relevant to today’s political climate. So, you might think about stuff.
The show is NYMMT’s biggest production yet. Sure, there are fancy lights, video projection, etc., but the thing that will really make this show memorable is its talented, hilarious cast. I’m truly proud to be part of this.
You can buy tickets online here, though if you want to come tonight, you’ll have to get tickets at the door. However you do it, you should check it out. It’s going to be something else.
Last night’s show at The Factory was fun and though the crowd was small, NYMMT managed to make a little money for their upcoming production, “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson”. Thanks to Joey T., Heidi Welch, Anja Ward, Dave Ostrowski, Jillian Harlow, Kevin Pelletier and Tom Holmes representing The Fitted Shirt, Jamie Feinberg and everyone who came out to hang.
Next up, we’ve got an acoustic show for Not Your Grandma’s Craft Fair on November 12 at the McDonough Elementary School. We’re teaming up again with NYMMT (Joey T., Kevin Kimball, Jamie Feinberg, etc.) and The Fitted Shirt to provide a soundtrack for folks checking out vendors such as Inkprint Letterpress. Come out and support your local craftspeople!
Lastly, the latest from Wicked Sick Films! is now up on the YouTubes. You can catch it on the big screen, along with films by Banded Light Pictures and Wax Idiotical Films on November 17 at the Red River Theater in Concord. I’ll post more details when I am better informed, but you should follow WSF, BLP, or WIF on the Facebook for the most up-to-date info on their film screenings.
May your power be restored soon if that’s still a thing. Have a great week!
