Pre Hallow's Eve Festivities!

Hello, monsters, goblins, and ghouls; my trans-spirit friends; all the witches, wizards, warlocks, and the like. Halloween fast approaches. And the show(s) must go on!

First, let me tell you about the parties I regular each year. This Friday night at the Adam's Apple, Flame Magazine's BEST KJ in Detroit, Karen O'Brien, is hosting BLOOD ON THE DANCEFLOOR Karaoke (and celebrating bartender Garth's birthday w/ charity organization Beautiful)! Lots of fun to be had! Sunday night is Karen's Annual BOO BASH at Gigi's. This year, it's a TIM BURTON HALLOWEEN! There's Karaoke, Videos, and Music. Best request night in Detroit!

This Saturday, however, I will be performing at the Ripcord (Bar) in Toledo, OH!
It's my "sister" Angel's Birthday Halloween and Carnival SHOW! (It's also her candidate show for Ms. MIGRA!) Come support her AND me, as well as all the other performers! It's gonna be a great show. I know that IIIIIIII have some fabulous numbers lined up for you! It's gonna be SPOOKTACULAR! See you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon! BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Obligatory Tuesday post...

Yes! I remembered again!

Well, there isn't much to say folks. I had a great time Saturday at the Weekend Pickers' Indoor Flea Market. Met "Boytoe & Lazareth", and Mr. Boiteux was a delight!

Not this weekend, but next weekend, I'll be in Toledo (Saturday, October 27th) at Ripcord for Angel's BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA! So, come enjoy a wild and CRAZY show!

Legally Blonde is coming up soon! November 9th draws closer! SO EXCITED!

Remember to check above for new gigs and for gig information. If you click on the Legally Blonde information, it will lead you to the info page to purchase tickets!

Talk to you next week!

What a week!

First, PLEASE come visit me at the Weekend Picker's Indoor Flea Market this Saturday! I'll be there sometime between 1 and 4 pm. Click on the link in the schedule for directions.

Last Saturday was the Fall Bash! I had a lot of fun and met a lot of great people, including musicians. There was some craziness and drama, but overall, it was an amazing show.

Legally Blonde is going great! Sunday, we worked on one of the longest numbers in the show. We were all exhausted, but we got a lot done, and the show is really starting to come together. Click the link in the schedule for information on how to get tickets!

Again, this Saturday, Weekend Picker's Indoor Flea Market. Come support a struggling musician!

Oops! I Did It AGAIN!

I am so not on top of this... but I do seem to be writing every TWO weeks. So, maybe that counts for something.

Last Tuesday, I had a wonderful time at the Under The Poppy Brothel singing for the Floozies and the Patrons. I brought passion and despair with "Amarilli, Mia Bella", helped bring the marionettes to life (or did they bring us to life) w/ a "Poppy" original "Is It Real?", and brought the party back to life with another "Poppy" favorite "In The Dark". Many thanks to Kathe Koja for asking me to embark on that journey. Also, thanks to DYE salon in Ferndale and James for helping make sure all of us were taken care of by the wonderful staff there who did our hair and make-up!

Meanwhile, this weekend is the Fall Bash with Affirmations! Saturday, October 6th, VIP begins at 6:30 pm ($50) and general admission starts at 8pm ($30) and runs until 2am! Click on FALL BASH to find out how to purchase tickets!

Meanwhile, I am working very hard at figuring out how to approach the new album. I do need donors to help make it possible! PLEASE visit my IndieGoGo page. We haven't raised a SINGLE DOLLAR yet! It's a flexible budget, and I am perfectly willing to send EVERY donor (no matter how small) a copy of "When She's Gone"! Writing that song is one of my proudest moments and has opened the door for a lot more amazing songs and inspired me to be a better songwriter! So, please donate AND (or...) SHARE!

More to come next week! I swear I'll keep on it this time. LoL!
