Art and politics have just had another one of their strange collisions.
|Friday night Pseudajawea rocked Partner’s Pub, and Strolling Drone correspondent Sissypuss was there to take in the show.|
The entire set was filled with excitement, as the Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate flexed considerable heavy metal chops, blending them with contemporary props like a 30 pound dumbbell made from a printout of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA/ObamaCare.)
Things veered in the direction of tense when some Cherokee women made it close to the stage.
Calling an audible to the band, Elizabeth had them segue into Run to the Hills,
brandishing her copy of ObamaCare at them while yelling “Enslaving the young and destroying the old!”, for all that might have been closer to a Trail of Tears reference. Security escorted the Cherokee women from the venue.Rejoining Warren on the stage in her old role as drummer was Teresa A. Sullivan, fresh from a stint as President at the University of Virginia. Fortunately the band sounded better that the steaming pile of malarky that Sullivan and Warren attempted to pass off as scientific research in 1989. Warren’s grasp of public conduct is roughly as risible as her genealogical efforts.
With Martha Coakley on lead guitar and Dede Scozzafava on bass, Pseudajawea is a musical, if not political, force with which to reckon. Look for their first collection of Iron Maiden covers, The Number Of The Powerslave Campaign Contributions That Will Give Us Piece Of Mind, next month.
Much love to Political Clown Parade for indulging this blog’s whacky photoshop ideas.
