One Last Night (We Are Myth)
Book and Lyrics: Charles Osborne
WE ARE MYTH is a modern retelling of ancient Greek myths as applied to issues facing a group of teens on one last camping trip the night before graduation.
Phaeton steals Fireball from his mother's liquor cabinet (myth - Prometheus), and Persephone has a new dead-beat boyfriend (myth - Persephone).
Recorded live at 54 Below, NYC.
