Facebook group for Fans of The Whisky Rebellion

Facebook invites. I know, right? Ubiquitous, annoying, misplaced. I get it. Well, Mr. Sheldrake, all your troubles are over. From now on, I’ll only be sending event invites to the folks in this group: Fans of Alex Battles & The Whisky Rebellion. It’ll also be a place for people to share photos, recordings etc.

Or course, all of our shows will also be posted on our The Whisky Rebellion likezone at Facebook, on my Twitter account, as well as here on

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
