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."

Dates from the press release:

March 18th: Austin, TX @ TBA
March 20th: Austin, TX @ Beauty Bar
March 24th: Leimert Park, CA @ Kaos Network
March 25th: Claremont, CA @ Pomona
April 7th: Toronto, ON @ The Art Gallery of Ontario
April 8th: Toronto, ON @ The Rearview Mirror
April 9th: Toronto, ON @ The WrongBar

Class Project made the video.
