Everything is Terrible! : The Great Satan
Terra Lightfoot Tour Poster
Amsterdam Bar & Hall
Mon 02/19/2018 (7pm/$14)
I can’t tell you if I’ve seen the first Everything is Terrible! movie, I’ve either seen a knock off or another Everything is Terrible! film, but I can tell you that they’re a collection of weird found VHS footage. These are the kind of thing that is probably best lost and forgotten by the ravage of time… but for the guys behind Everything is Terrible!, they need to preserve this.
For this upcoming tour, they’re calling it “The Great Satan”, which will showcase some of their 2,000 satanic panic, religious kook, and D-horror VHS tapes…. In an all-new live puppets and costumes.
And if you’ve got an old Jerry Maguire VHS tape, please consider donating it to Everything is Terrible! (they’ve got over 15,000 copies in their collection).

7th Street Entry
Tue 02/20/2018 (7pm/$10)
Guitarist-vocalist Terra Lightfoot is ending her North American show at the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis this Tuesday (she’ll be continuing the rest of her tour in her native Canada). Lightfoot is a powerhouse performer, impressing CBC Music, who wrote, “If you haven't seen Terra Lightfoot perform live, then do yerself a favour and get a ticket next time she's in town. Lightfoot is the total package: she can write a hooky tune, rip through a blistering guitar solo and sing the hell out of any song she likes.”
Please note that the female-fronted, five-piece Kiss the Tiger will be performing last on this show.
US Tour dates:
Feb 16 & 17 Davenport, IA @ GAS Feed & Seed Festival
Feb 19 Madison, WI @ The Frequency
Feb 20 Minneapolis, MN @ 7th St Entry
