During this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase, Home by Hovercraft owned the stage at Club Dada with their effusive, anthemic pop. They appeared too experienced for a band that had just landed on the scene — and for good reason. Home by Hovercraft’s long and peculiar genesis is reminiscent of what famously buoyant PBS artist Bob Ross would call “a happy accident.” To put it another way: when life hands you a marriage, a vintage xylophone, an Irish step-dancing sister, and a tuba you do not know how to play, start a band.

Fast forward. Write a rock musical, with help from actor and Kitchen Dog Company member Michael Frederico. Call it On The Eve, and make it a very nearly true story about Marie Antoinette and the world's first-ever time machine. Present it with help from Nouveau 47.
