Poker Face at Libertarian Convention 2004 in Atlanta, GA

Poker Face

Added to the bill of the Friday Concert (headlined by Jimmie Vaughan) is the Pennsylvania rock band, Poker Face. Their songs are about love, life and liberty with powerful and poignant lyrics and a rich sound reminiscent of Boston and Pink Floyd.

They played a Freedom Rally at the National Monument in Washington, D.C. in November 2002 before a huge crowd. Lisa Guliani of Babel Magazine subsequently wrote, “...the band is committed to exposing political conspiracies and cover-ups in a very unique way…Poker Face kicked some serious ass in D.C…They’ve been aptly dubbed ‘America’s House Band’ – and let me tell you, these guys know how to rock the house.”

Well-known to the LPPA, Poker Face (Paul Topete, Dennis Beidler, Brett Griffiths and Rich Valentine) has played at their state conventions (among many other venues, private and public, in several states) and comes highly recommended by LP activists there.

LP News editor Bill Winter compiled a Top-25 List of liberty-oriented songs for the August 2001 issue. Poker Face’s song “Rather Die Than Be Your Slave” made the list. (You can listen to it on their website.)

They have two very comprehensive websites, with all sorts of information, quotes and references to their libertarian political philosophy, including this one: “Patriots are not “revolutionaries” trying to overthrow the government of the United States. Patriots are “counter-revolutionaries” trying to prevent the government of the United States from overthrowing the Constitution of the United States.” (author unknown)

Lee Hansen of Umbrellazine wrote, “I realized that the voice of reason and patriotism wasn't gone, wasn't stilled, wasn't dead – the voice was simply waiting, searching for the hearts and minds and ears that could hear the message once again. Poker Face is the messenger, the carrier of the torch and the channel for the voice of reason in this grave new decade of change.”

This is no amateur garage-band. These guys are real pros, with four excellent CD’s to their credit. You won’t want to miss them!

Speaking of Libertarian Conventions...

Just a heads-up: ... 5&Itemid=2

These little shits have already instigated an attack on the staff of the Rutgers College Republican newspaper The Centurion. A "black bloc" gang armed with pipe wrenches and other weapons confronted the conservative kids at a public function last year, then published an incredible anonymous threat against them on this website, onepeoplesproject.

They intend, obviously, to start agitating against your appearance there. The Rutgers administration being somewhere to the left of Mao Tse Tung, such a campaign will be received favorably. You can expect pressure on the Libertarians to drop you.

If that doesn't work, you can reasonably expect to be physically attacked when you arrive or during your performance. These anarcho-communist types have been known to throw everything from metal projectiles, such as heavy bolts and nuts, to water ballons filled with urine, and bags of fecal matter.

You should take suitable precautions.
