THEESatisfaction releases "Bad March" song/video, announces "Black Weirdo" tour
Posted by Andrew Matson
Seattle's premier psychedelic space-rap/jazz girlfriend duo THEESatisfaction is headed out on the "Black Weirdo" tour. But rather than "tour," perhaps it's more accurate to say Catherine Harris-White and Stasia Irons are setting off on a march. In March.
"Bad March" hit the internet yesterday, an a cappella THEESatisfaction song/video about "marching forward, marching toward..."
The ellipsis in the song's "marching toward..." lyric hangs significantly, unresolving the phrase and extending it forever. The group's tour fundraising webpage says THEESatisfaction hopes to spread "queer expression, black consciousness, and gender harmony within & outside United States."
