One of today’s most enchanting singer/performers is back in Seattle for a one-night-only performance at The Triple Door!
Lady Rizo’s new show, “Red, White & Indigo: My love-hate relationship with America” will take The Triple Door stage on April 19. Brandon and I will be there–join us!
About the show:
America is a very bad boyfriend but why do I still love him? If we are potentially witnessing the death of the US as we know it, Chanteuse superstar Lady Rizo delivers a deeply personal musical eulogy unpacking the feelings for the country she was born in, cut with her trademark humor, wit, and soaring voice. Backed by choice trio featuring acclaimed cellist, guitarist and composer Yair Evnine, Lady Rizo leads us to our own utopian island nation..with no walls, only velvet curtains.
About Lady Rizo:
‘Cabaret Superstar’ (New York Magazine), comedienne, and chanteuse, Lady Rizo, won her first Grammy in 2010 on a duet with acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma and also sings and records with multi-platinum recording artist Moby. Come experience the trademark titillating humor and soulful, soaring voice has created a cult fan base around the world.
“SENSATIONAL… A fierce but kindhearted fusion of comedy, burlesque, performance art and rock ‘n’ roll” – The New York Times

I love The Atomic Bombshells if you’ve seen one of their productions, chances are you do too. This is burlesque & drag at its best and “J’ADORE! A Burlesque Valentine” is one of their top productions. “J’ADORE!” returns to The Triple Door February 9-14 (no show 2/13). Every year they mix it up with new acts and this year is no exception. “The Bold, Bald, Badass” Mistress Victoria DeVille from MN will be the host and Seattle’s vogueing dance crew “The Purple Lemonade” also make an appearance.
Enter to win two tickets to see “J’ADORE! A Burlesque Valentine” at The Triple Door and two tickets to see “Kitten N’ Lou: Holier Than Thou” at Century Ballroom’s West Hall: http://gvwy.io/6cifohf
Freshly reimagined each year, and featuring a parade of breathtaking brand new and classic acts, J’ADORE! is a burlesque, drag, and dance spectacular that celebrates romance with good humor, style, and a healthy dose of dazzle! Recently named “Seattle’s most venerable burlesque dancers”(The Stranger), The Atomic Bombshells are comprised of a cast of award-winning, title-holding, globe-trotting show girls and boys. More about the show on their Facebook page here.
What if every Seattleite who is worried about their power going out during this weekend’s storm took a moment to donate just $10 to the homeless shelter of their choice? Can you imagine the impact we could have as a community?
Tonight, I’m grateful for the roof over my head. Because losing power (and internet! OMG!) is nothing compared to out in the cold, blustery elements.
Tonight, I’m donating $50 to DESC. Join me in donating to them (or your favorite shelter organization)!
If you have a favorite homeless shelter organization, please feel free to tell me about it in the comments. I’d love to learn who YOU support and why.
The Black Cat Bash returns October 22nd for its third year! This incredibly fun event (one of my favorite dance parties of the year) is a benefit for the Seattle Humane Society. NOW is your chance to get tickets. You can also enter to win a pair of tickets below.
It’s the weekend before the main halloween party weekend, so it gives all of us costume enthusiasts a great reason to get dressed up again! Plus, friends with kids will have a much easier time finding a sitter so they can come out and boogie.
If you love pop, classic alternative, and 80s/90s/00s/today guilty pleasures like I do, the music will get you moving on the dance floor all night long. Kitty Valentine (my friend Kate) started these parties to help raise money for a great cause and to offer a fun dance experience for those of us looking for alternatives outside the electronic music scene. Shindig Events (my favorite Seattle party planner) is also a part of this event to help add special extra touches to the experience.
I’m thrilled to host a giveaway for two tickets to the event!
That’s it! You can enter on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or all three. Winner will be notified on Saturday, Sept 24.
