Polite Weirdo, Rebaba Group show

From Dave via the forums:

“Five months after losing our dear brother, Rude Weirdo will return on February 27th. But you can call us Polite Weirdo for this one. See we got asked to play the Rainbow Spiritual Education Center’s “Coffeehouse Night”. They’re really nice people, but they do drum circles and things of that nature. They have no fucking idea. Also, Jason and Eric want to take this opportunity to bring their kids. So no cussing for us, which is a very real challenge with this material. All the songs are still about dirty sex and retarded people and revenge.

Also playing will be a very stripped down version of The Rebaba Group, which, with the exception of myself, is composed entirely of Sudanese refugees. The rebaba is the instrument that they build and play. It’s kind of like a krar if you’re familiar with those. Like a cross between a banjo and a harp. If you consider yourself hardcore, talk to these guys for 10 minutes and you’ll realize that you’re not. They are also some of the most beautiful and inviting people I’ve ever come into contact with, and I am beyond honored to be playing with them. You should come just to meet them. You’ll be better for it, I swear. I played a show with them in Indy and there was like 30 of them singing and dancing, but it’ll just be a couple of the guys and me for this one. I am VERY excited about this show. It has the potential to be genuinely surreal. You should come.

February 27th
The Rainbow Spiritual Education Center (It’s located in the Pfeiffer Building. 2701 Lindsay Ave. Right off of Hite. Google Map it maybe.)
All ages
The cover will be, in the words of the Rainbows, a “Love Offering”. I think that means you give what you can.
No booze or drugs please, we’re trying to be Polite after all. We’ll hit the bar after.”
