Tyra Penn & the Snakes of Amazonia
As a musical commemoration of the centennial of women's suffrage in America, vocalist Tyra Penn brings her band the The Army of Snakes to Thompson in a special all-female line up, "The Snakes of Amanzonia"! To honor those brave Victorian ladies who marched shoulder to shoulder into the fray, the Snakes will present a patriotic program of song, from their own perspective. We shall review the founding documents, and share the greatest American folk songs. Follow our heroines on their trip across the sea to reach these golden shores, and as they travel that ribbon of highway, all the way to a possible post apocalyptic future. They will meet many mysterious strangers, from a partisan, to a lady in the harbor, to a man with a hammer, until at last they find their way home.
Since this concert is a part of Thompson's "Six Months of Suffrage", commemorating the ratification of the 19th Amendment allowing women to vote in America, voter registration cards will be available. We encourage first time voters to sign up, and make their voices heard!
