For those unfamiliar with the novel, a short lurid teaser: "The Master and Margarita" plays partly in the Moscow of the 20s and partly in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus' crucifixion. It contains a talking cat, and of course Satan himself. There are three decapitations, a crucifixion (obviously) and 5 admissions to the madhouse. And of course, a great romance with a tragic end.
It premiered on December 7 and here are the next dates @ SCHAUSPIEL FRANKFURT(GER)

  WALLIS - The Mistakes Are Intentional

In anticipation of the March 9th 2012 release of Wallis' third full-length album - entitled "Wallis Bird" – Wallis has additionally recorded solo acoustic versions of each song on the album. We've put these versions together to create a special limited edition solo acoustic album called "The Mistakes Are Intentional" which you can buy even before "Wallis Bird" comes out in 2012!
So for those of you who can't wait for the release of "Wallis Bird", this will give you a very special acoustic preview of the songs that will be on it. For the collectors among you, it's rather like a companion edition to 'Wallis Bird" & early christmas present!
The solo versions were recorded in Wallis' home in London during the summer of 2011. Of course the album "Wallis Bird" will feature her full band once again, so "The Mistakes are Intentional" contains very intimate, acoustic interpretations of the same songs that will appear on 'Wallis Bird".
