From information received directly:
The band Athens vs. Sparta is playing at the Hyde Park Theatre this Sunday night only at 8 p.m. It's likely to sell out. Why should you care?
Because their music is rocking and complex and gorgeous, because it's a song cycle based on the Peloponnesian War, and because Hyde Park Theatre Artistic Director Ken Webster narrates throughout.
I know you're thinking "Wha-?" but check out the brief, beautifully-made video taste and you'll see why Athens vs. Sparta has played from San Antonio to Dallas and sold out the Cactus Cafe twice. Come see them live and intimate at HPT. Tickets are $10-- call 479-PLAY (7529) for reservations.
