Christian parody band ApologetiX will perform in concert at Geneva College on Saturday, April 27 at 7 p.m. in John White Chapel of Old Main. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 dollars at the door.
The concert is being hosted by Geneva’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter to benefit a local food bank. The FBLA asks that concert attendees bring donations of canned goods and other non-perishable food items.
“Come enjoy your favorite contemporary songs with lyrics that glorify Christ, and connect to the surrounding community at the same time with the food drive that we’re holding,” says Wesley Prichard, secretary for Geneva’s FBLA chapter.
The band’s most recent album is Hot Potato Soup, which supports the evening’s food drive theme. Tracks on the album include “Lived the Day You Died,” a parody of “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem, and “Lock,” a parody of “Walk” by the Foo Fighters.
ApologetiX was founded in Pittsburgh in 1992. The band has since released 21 studio albums and played concerts in all 50 states. ApologetiX creates parodies by rewriting secular songs with Christian lyrics and have referred to themselves as a cross between “Weird Al” Yankovic and Billy Graham.
Geneva College invites students to accept the challenge of an academically excellent, Christ-centered education. Offering nearly 40 undergraduate majors, an Adult Degree Completion Program with fully online and campus-based options, and seven graduate degrees, Geneva has programs that place students at the forefront of higher learning. Adhering to the inerrancy of Scripture, the liberal arts core curriculum fosters a breadth of knowledge through the study of humanities, social and natural sciences, and experiential learning.
In the past four years, on average, 90% of Geneva students are working or in grad school within six months after graduation.
