Athens vs. Sparta
by Hyde Park Theatre
Dec. 18, 2016
Seven years ago, Athens vs Sparta was selling out the Cactus Cafe, Hyde Park Theatre, and other venues statewide. Now this band/song-cycle--a combination dark indie-pop-opera, Greek drama, and modern allegory based on the Peloponnesian War--returns to HPT for one night only.
Featuring musicians Charlie Roadman, Jamie Roadman, Kevin Higginbotham, Michael Davids, Marcus Rubio, and Devin Guerro. Narrated by Ken Webster.
"No, it's not a play, actually. It's a concert. A live band, yes. But, see, these guys 1) sound gorgeous, like Iron & Wine joined up with, maybe, Sigur Ros or something; and they 2) sing exclusively about the war referenced above, straight outta Thucydides, and 3) the non-sung parts are narrated by Hyde Park Theatre's Ken Webster. Never mind that SXSW stuff, this is where the music's at tonight." - Austin Chronicle
