Major Arcana on DVD: https://sunspot.bandcamp.com/merch/major-arcana-dvd

A combination of theater, audience participation, multimedia stage show, and rock concert party, Sunspot’s “Major Arcana” links live performances of their songs with the story of Joe, a recent college graduate who lives most of his life online. The audience sees Joe through the eyes of the people he meets in the digital world, especially an Internet Psychic whose Tarot readings form the heart of the story.

Since Joe lost his girlfriend and is in a new town, most of his social interactions are online. The relationships he builds are with people who he’s never met in real life. People that he pays to spend time with him. First was the psychic, now is the stripper, his favorite webcam model.

The Tarot card that represents “Neanderthal” is “The Hermit”, and it is the deepest point of the character’s arc where personal relationship become about domination and humanity is overlooked in favor of the animal. It’s the darkest lyrics and heaviest moment, it’s the need to withdraw from society so he can become comfortable with himself. And he’s about to whack off to a girl live on the Internet.

Sunspot’s “Major Arcana” tour was about creating a completely new type of experience that’s personal like a rock concert has the emotional weight of a musical, that’s dynamic visually like a film, and has the depth of great literature. The band premiered the show at SXSW and took it on a tour of America’s East Coast, Midwest and South. Recorded at The Annex in Madison on the last night of their tour and is a complete live production specially recorded, along with tour videos, deleted scenes, bonus songs, a commentary track, and other special features. This DVD is the culmination of the tour and stage show: https://sunspot.bandcamp.com/merch/major-arcana-dvd

Lyrics

Virtual murder,
pixelated death,
we can kill each other,
with no regrets.
Like raping a hooker,
Or popping a cop,
Or pushing a handi,
Right out of his wheelchair.

Your thoughts become reality,
Focusing on a tragedy,
And now I’m fucking my PC.

I am Neanderthal.
I am Incredible.
I am Neanderthal.
Berserker.

This liquor store’s a mammoth,
This gat’s a bone.
There’s too much information,
In this age of Stone.

Your thoughts become reality,
A self-fulfilling prophecy,
And now I’m fucking my PC.

I am Neanderthal.
I am Incredible.
I am Neanderthal.
Berserker.

Your thoughts become reality,
Focusing on a tragedy,
And now I’m fucking my PC.

I am Neanderthal.
I am Incredible.
I am Neanderthal.
Berserker.
Berserker.
Berserker.
