SODA CITY ROCK SHOW - THE HAVES, DECADENCE, STARDOG, BEYOND THE FADE
FRI, FEBRUARY 16, 2018 Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm
Our name comes from the novel The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha where his sidekick Sancho quotes his grandmother saying, “in this world there are only two types of people- the haves and the have nots.” Our message is socio-politically aware with the mission to depict an inhumanity that manifests in various forms around us- one that can be overcome by those who diligently re-humanize themselves and their environment. We convey the often unrealized truth about the times; yet promote a brutishly optimistic mindset that only when one can recognize their chains will they be able to cast them off. A major influence comes from Paulo Freire's book Pedagogy of the Oppressed to highlight the origins of social inequalities that stem from structural issues. Our message uses a multivocal approach to be able to take on the personas of both the oppressor and the oppressed in order to demonstrate how ideologies function and also how both qualities can take form within the same individual. Above all we hope to shed light on the naturalization of domination. In other words, for there to be a “haves” there must be a have-not, otherwise there would be no basis for comparison to create your identity in relation to another.
