There are only two known recordings of Cy Rawls' Sweet Militia. The bulk of the songs here were taken from a show on September 19, 2003 at Ace's Basement in the Coliseum Inn in Greensboro, NC. That night's line-up also included Manband (Asheville) and Manamid (Greensboro).
This was our first out-of-town gig (besides the debut.) Cy Rawls left right after we played in order to catch a show at Kings in Raleigh. Always the music fan.
