Who Poured White Lightning in My Tea Party?

Until now, having lustful feelings for our founding fathers was the stuff of fetishes. Then a little musical came along that made America get all tight in the pants. It’s Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, a rockin’ tour of populism that modernizes our seventh president by stuffing him into a pair of skinny jeans. How else would he properly woo your vote? While at first blush the performance looks like a dash of School House Rock mixed with a heavy hand of Dashboard Confessional, upon further inspection you’ll see that our country has always loved a leading man placed in a position of power. So don’t be alarmed if Old Hickory gives you wood.
