thur, Apr 24, 2014 - 'DON'T FEED THE CATS in IRAQ' LIVE!!
433 Park Ave S (btwn 29th and 30th)
New York, NY 10016
after working in the Iraq War battlefield as a civilian contractor, Phil returned home in 2006, suffering PTSD, he began working with Vic Ruggiero on songs, poems and stories about his experiences.
What resulted is a concept album/book combo called "DON'T FEED THE CATS IN IRAQ" , (the song 'Sabina' made it onto a Slackers album...)
Vic, Phil, a live band and the acclaimed 'Letter of Marque' Theater co. perform all this and more in an ever evolving mixed media 'live-band meets street-theater' style...
words by Phil, music by Vic
...returning to a favorite spot, this time will feature parts of Phil's new play, a full live performance of the album and even opening acts (cuz we booked the whole night. 9pm-midnite)
as Phil says "i believe at the moment it is the only musical about civilian contractors in the Iraq War"
and i think that says it all...
and other great songs
Vic Ruggiero of the Slackers
Phil Wartel of Stubborn Allstars, Radiation Kings and Typhoid Rosie
Rich Terranna of the Frighteners
Shane of the Ashes
don't miss it...
