This is the 45th year Broom Street Theater has been in operation. I’ve gotten a fondness of the place since last year, and to wonder about the struggles it goes through to bring entertaining acts ever boggles my mind. They make due with what they can while still making themselves fairly available to audiences, but repairs and upgrades are an eventuality, which is why they are likely in the midst of an Indiegogo campaign. As of this writing they are still under $1000, which is a far cry from the $4500 they are seeking. Care to spread some care to the theater that dares? *cringe* Yeah, that was bad. But really, consider the option. In supplement to this, consider seeing the Delicious Festival which will be showing through the month of September. So much Deliciousness on the rise.
StageQ is in the midst of prepping for the Christmas spirit, and auditions for Christmas with the Crawfords is right around the corner. Well, specifically September 8th & 9th with callbacks on the 10th. I sadly know next to nothing of this (there’s a trend here), but the idea of watching a story set in Hollywood’s “Golden Era” with actors in drag just makes me smile. Interested persons should prepare and bring music to sing, because CwtC is a musical as well, and dang does that make me happy. The show will run December 5th – 20th, so be prepared for a viewing. Christmas takes a lot out of us, after all, and it goes down easier with a bit of comedy.
Chiptunes = WIN is at it again. Continuing to bring you the best of Chiptune in vast quantities of awesome with Volume 3. Mmmm hmmm! Makes me wish I still had use of my computer so I could listen in at leisure. MMMM HMMM!!! But enough sulking, because this is time for celebration. Volume 3 is dropping tomorrow, and it’s a damn good deal to jump in to appreciate the efforts of the fine artists in the compilation. Come with me and hype over the info already released to the world, then get the album the next day!…I’ll pass on that for now. Moneys and means of play stop me for now, but certainly can’t stop me from being excited. EXCITED, you hear!? But really, damn glad to know ChipWIN is still going strong. May it’s rainbow continue to shine for awhile. Continue reading
A little something special is happening at the Art & Soul Tattoo and Gallery come August 28th. Christy Grace will be closing out the showing of her art with a party, and if you haven’t seen her work in person yet you’re in for a treat. Open to the public, the party starts up at 5 PM with food and beverages to satisfy the body while you satisfy your mind. Things start to get interesting at 7 PM, when Christy starts a live body art demo. Someone will be transformed into a canvas for the work off Christy! What will it be? You could wait for pictures, but things like this need to be experienced first hand, so get there if you can.
Haven’t been on the ball about things at all, but this thing right here? No one to blame but those in marketing, because I would jump on this the moment I knew about it…which was the past 24 hours, and it’s less than 24 hours the event should start. Y U NO TELL FANS!? *sigh* Not that I could afford Glass Nickel Pizza, but that’s beside the point. Living recordings of 10 Minutes About Your Favorite Movie? I’m down with that, given that every episode of that podcast is gold…well, except the one about Planet of the Apes (series of film, wasn’t specified), if I’m to believe what was said on another Little Podcast…podcast. Think it was Running With Scissors. But again, beside the point. Movies and pizza go together, and while it might not be an actual movie being watched, talking about them leads is an endless opportunity of fun. Hoping it gets the crowd it deserves.
The monthly screenings of Ben Wydeven are ongoing, and this month Jarrod Crooks is going to be showing along with him. Had the honor of seeing Dispatched back in March 2014, and dang did I have a good time. The blend of action, comedy, and romance made the film feel a little cluttered at times, but I can’t deny it looked good and brought out the very best of emotions within me. Mostly the punchy kind. Dispatched will sadly not be shown at the screening, but plenty of Jarrod’s short films will. And if you do need Dispatched in your life (you do), there should be DVDs ready for a trade of cash. Oh! And be ready for something called Bitch Slapped…it’s going to make you laugh all while you appreciate the action. And yes, late this is, but better late than never. Maybe? Maybe…
Music is always happening at the High Noon Saloon. And come this Thursday, August 14, the musical acts of CHANTS, Midas Bison, Annabel Lee, and Joey Broyles are coming round. Recently had an update as to how Joey rocks it in the now, finally saw Annabel during the pride shenanigans this past weekend, but I’ve yet to know the wonder of Chants and Midas. Someday when money and time permits! For now, consider the venture, and let me know how glorious it all was, alright? Need to tease the need.
