School for the Dead is excited to be playing this Saturday (March 13) at the new Cultural Center at Eagle Hill School in Hardwick, MA. It'll be a different sort of show for us. Actually we are doing two shows. The first is one for students only, the second is for people twenty-one or older. Both shows take place in the Kresge Studio Theatre, which is sort of like a black box theatre. You can see pictures of it here: Kresge Theatre. It's all brand new and super fancy.
It's a different sort of show for us in that: 1.) It's not in a bar. 2.) It's not in a grungy run-down dark room 3.) People will be sitting and listening 4.) People will be able to hear everything that we do.
I'm excited. I love playing in dingy bars and back-rooms of bowling alleys or rented out VFW clubs, but its nice to once in a while play places where the music really has to shine. I'm looking forward to creating a memorable night for those that chose to come out and see us. I've played in theater settings before with Mark Mulcahy, Winterpills, and School for the Dead. There's a different sort of feeling. There is a back-stage hush and rush. The nights feel very prepared and focused. I think I might be made for that scene. There's nothing better than that feeling you get when people start filing in and taking their seats and your peering secretly from behind a curtain or a stage door. It's like the sound of an orchestra tuning up in my gut.
Want to see School for the Dead in this setting? I think you should. And you still can, I believe. There are still some tickets available. You can get them here: Tickets and Info
It's in a beautiful new building on the hilly campus of a school in the middle of nowhere.
