As many of you know, we're moving MOD NIGHT- A GO GO! to 12th & Porter. I've loved being at The Rutledge but I think this is a great move for us and I hope you agree.
We'll be at 12th & Porter on Jan 8th (Elvis and Bowie's birthday) and I just want to change it up a bit for the new year.
We've had the honor of having some amazing go go dancers from both Panty Raid! Burlesque and Music City Burlesque and I feel like they deserve to be featured a bit more.
I want to build them some sort of go go cage or platform thing so that they're not just dancing around cords and monitors on the stage or dancing on the dance floor, where there are no lights shining on them. These beautiful and talented ladies should be showcased a bit more and I'm trying to figure out how to do it.
The cages have to be easy to transport and set up and inexpensive. I thought of some kind of rope light structure to give the illusion of an actual cage but it's been suggested that it would be way too hot. That helpful person (Joey) also suggested strings of beads that could create bars...but I still can't figure out how to assemble it all.
Well, if you have any ideas, please let me know.
I hope you guys are all doing well. I spent Thanksgiving back home in NYC where I watched Harry Potter's naked body from the 10th row, in Equus on Bway. I saw the show with my Dad as a kid and upon seeing it as an adult, I realize why I'm as wacky as I am. I can't blame my late father, I'm sure I begged him to take me to the show about the horses...and this was before you could check things out on the internet to see if you should be bringing your kid or not. ha! The nude aspect is nothing, it's the dark, violent, horse blinding, psychological stuff that might not have been a good fit for a teenager.
That said, it's a great show and although I'm not a big Daniel Radcliff fan(it was a family outing thing), he did a great job.
I've got a suggestion for that hard to buy for person. www.heifer.org
This organization gives animals to needy people. I'm a vegetarian, so I usually give the gift of a goat (for milk) or a lamb (for wool). This organization gets really high marks on the groups that check out charities and I love the concept of helping others help themselves. A couple years ago we gave my boss, the elegant, Grammy winner Linda Davis a Water Buffalo!! She loved it! I've since given friends a flock of chickens ($20) and honeybees ($30). It's just a thought. I know we all give and get a lot of gifts but you'd really remember it if someone gave you a goat! ha! just a thought. -it's not like you really have to take care of it... but you know that it'll help save a family from hunger and sometimes an entire community.
Well, that's it for now.
