Get Your Derek Webb On
|So I'm going to a Derek Webb show Friday in Marion, Indiana. It's a completely out of the blue thing, given that I just found out about it, oh, 15 minutes ago. I couldn't be more excited.|
Webb is one of my favourite songwriters. He used to be in a folk band called Caedmon's Call. He was one of a couple of songwriters in that band. He was by far the better half of the duo. Now he's doing some amazing solo stuff.
This tour is cool for a couple of reasons. First of all, it's in support of his new record, Mockingbird, which drops 26 December. It's going to piss off a lot of people. I can't wait. Webb's stuff is usually sold in Christian bookstores. We'll see how long that lasts.
The second reason this is cool is that John Davis (formerly of Superdrag) is on the tour as well. Davis converted to Christianity a while back and now he's making Jesusy music. (Don't worry, Superdrag fans loved his new disc, so it's still all good.)
Oh? You're probably wondering why Mockingbird is going to make people in the Christian establishment angry, aren't you? See if you can guess:
There are two great lies that I've heard:Oh snap!
