Aiight so I'm new here and I'm a pretty new fan to Antigone Rising. I was wondering...

Which (if any) of the members are gay?

I am posting because I thought you guys would be interested in a group of lesbian filmmakers. We have an award winning script and a GREAT team of talent and experience.

The problem: We are in North Carolina and it is a lesbian film. So when we did finally get funding we lost it.

So now, a grassroots approach: we are going to do this our own way.Just us as women, as lesbians and as filmmakers. Basically it's about getting to do what we want to do without bowing down or selling out to the men in the area with the money and the power. AND we have a plan:

We've started a website and are going to try to get people to donate ONE dollar a person and in return we will thank them by name in the credits...all 500,000 of them. We are also selling tops and undies to promote our cause, our art. The site is http://www.heroinefilms.net for those of you interested in helping our vision become reality.

Hot off the AR press... [18 Mar 2004|12:26pm]

MARCH 11, 2004

Due to creative differences we have parted ways with long-time friend and bass player Anne-Marie Stehn. It was a difficult and painful decision for all of us. We only wish the best for Anne-Marie in all her personal and musical pursuits and we know she'll be successful in whatever she chooses to do. As for Antigone Rising, we have a new bass player named Jen Zielenbach. Jen hails from Philadelphia where she's played with several bands. Jen will make her on-stage debut with us tomorrow night at Schuba's in Chicago. Be sure to come out and say hi at one of our upcoming shows!

Cassidy, Kristen, Cathy and Dena

intro [04 Jan 2004|06:59pm]

I went to my first AR show last night in Providence. My girlfriend dragged me into going, and I really wasn't expecting them to be good at all. Well... anyway... they rocked. I had such a blast. Hopefully they'll come to RI or MA again soon... I can't wait.

So Antigone Rising completely renevated their website. It looks absolutely AMAZING. And guess what... great news for you New yorkers!!! Antigone Rising will be doing their second EVER live recording for their Fall release live EP NEXT FRIDAY, July 11th, at the Revolution Hall in Troy NY! ROCK ON. You better go, just so you can say you were there for their second ever live recorded ep. I'm going to try to scream loud enough to be heard. Shyeah!

Oh yeah, go to their new multimedia section and download the ROCK N ROLL video... I guarantee you folks, it's absolutely AMAZING. I HIGHLY recommend going to download it NOW because you WILL be blown away (especially for mp3 quality! Dayum!).

Later Crackheads and Cracklords. See you dedicated folks Next friday at the Revolution Hall!

Hello [16 Jun 2003|11:17pm]

I just wanted to introduce myself and find out if there are any other AR fans in the DC area on the LJ. My name is Jim and I am a twenty something in Washington, DC. I first saw Antigone Rising last year at the Mt. Pleasant Day Festival here in DC, and I was instantly hooked.

NEGATIVE LANE propaganda dismissed after request fulfilled... [09 Jun 2003|10:32pm]

[ mood | enthralled ]

Hey. I just wanted to let you guys know that crackhead updated her website. And after many, MANY requests... "Negative Lane" has been played by A.R. at not only one, but TWO venues...

So, crackhead posted both video's on her multimedia section and here is the link:


I personally think they both sound great, but if I HAD to choose, i'd go with the Village Underground version having the best sound quality to it.

And did you know Antigone Rising is playing with Evanescence down south? I'VE NEVER WISHED SO MUCH THAT I LIVED IN GEORGIA AS I DO RIGHT NOW. BOTH bands are amazing and seeing them play together would be puuurrreee heaven.

Enjoy and keep on rockin'!

[ mood | anxious ]

Has anyone here joined the AR Force? On the website it says if you become a member of their street team which I did, you can get force member only releases. Has anyone else gotten anything? I am curious cause I want unreleased stuff so bad!

Well just in hot off the Antigone Rising news section:

They just signed with Lava Records. They plan on releasing a live EP this summer and their new studio full-length is suppose to be recorded by the end of the summer and due out spring of 2004. They had a *new song* request email thingie at the bottom so I requested "Buying Bridges" and "Image Nation" b/c they really stand out in my mind when I think back on all the songs i've LOVED from their recent shows and new mp3's. Woohoo!

Boston show tonight [16 Apr 2003|03:28pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Anyone else going to the Boston show tonight? I wasn't able to find anyone else to go with on the short notice since I just found out about the show a week or so ago and haven't been able to get enough people hooked on AR yet.

Can't wait for the show. I missed them the last time they were in town, but I've been gobbling up all of the new songs as they put them online.

See you there (if you're going to be there).

anyone going to be at the village underground this friday?

and the ulterior motive: transportation woes. i COULD make it under my own power, but the subways and buses are so damned confusing...and any sort of help would be great, even if it's just clear directions from grand central to the village underground.

anybody even ALIVE out there?

I just noticed someone posted this quote on the Antigone Rising board:

"I have a new nephew. My sister and her husband brought him home from a Russian orphanage last February. His name is Roma, and he just turned three. Roma came here and weighed only 17 pounds at the age of 2. He was sick for most of that first year and grossly malnourished. He did not know how to jump. Worse, he did not know how to laugh. He'd try, but all that would come out was a strained growl-scream. He didn't understand that these strangers were his new family, and he had a little trouble making the transition. That was Roma. After 5-10 therapy sessions per week, several necessary operations, and an excess of food and love he's coming right along. But there are still those who say he's learning-disabled, and the terms "ADD" and "possible future sociopath" are being thrown around. Hmmmm. So i pick Roma up from his day-school at the Center for the Disabled a couple weeks ago and we're driving home as usual. And as usual, i'm talking to him and he's repeating the words back but not really understanding. So i tried something: i turned my stereo on and played the tape that was in there. It was a cold, sunny day and Romie's eyes were closing slowly. (Antigone, i'm sorry, but i suck with titles and my tape's not labelled, but that diamond song...) That diamond song came on. Roma sat up in his kid-seat and strained to see where that sound was coming from...I picked up the box and put it where he could see and hear it the best, and he listened in silence, struck. I had to laugh, because i remembered that that was the same look i had the first time i heard it. And he just stared and listened, like he couldn't believe it. At the end, when Cassidy goes back into the last soft part, he looked at me and said one word very clearly: "more?" to which i answered "of course!" We had time to hear it 5 1/2 more times before we got home, and each time, he'd say, "more?" In fact, he'd keep saying it while it rewound until he heard the first words start again. I picked him up yesterday, and of course my box has eaten my tape and i can't find my cd, so i figured i'd try something else. I started singing the words and i didn't even get thru the first 1/2 sentence before he started saying "more" and craning his neck to find the magic box that makes the song come out the way it's sposed to. Here's my point. Roma's three, and he's already seen more shit than most of us. He doesn't understand english yet, but he does understand the sound of an indominable spirit, of inspiration, the sound of refusing to be diminished. The spirit of this song, of these women who are out busting their balls to get this music out to people, bridges every divide, be it language, race, gender, age, whatever. Even if he didn't know the words, for the time that that song played, Roma and i were completely in the same space together: free, whole again, in the company of fellow love warriors, and unbreakable, no matter what. So i'm saying thank you from us both, and also: Romie is a wonderful, loving, smart little boy, and he's gonna be just fine. i've decided to make him a mixed cd of tunes that make me feel brave and big inside, to help him along when he needs it (or anytime). It's gonna start with the diamond song. If anybody has any suggestions on other stong-hearted tunes to put on there, i'd love to hear them. STAY STRONG and let world peace start with each of us. much love***cris "

Wow. I'm speechless. Cassidy is one amazing girl. She has me astounded in SO many ways. I don't think anyone understands what this girl does for me.
