What’s happening? I’ll tell you what!

Wed Aug 17 9:00pm NOT The Moonshine Cabaret @ the Palace, DC AKA - Judy Chops, Slomski Brothers, Mab Just Mab & Marla Meringue While this started as a Moonshine Cabaret show, only two of the regular acts were available. (the rest were rocking out in europe or jet setting in history).  So, it became something else. 🙂   Something Different!  SOMETHING TASTY! The Slomski Brothers were in the middle of their tour with the fabulous Judy Chops.  So I grabbed them all and put them on stage! While writing up the act description, I realized everyone had a little nod to food!  And so the show became: "You Gonna Eat All That?" Speaking of tasty snacks:Jelly Vision ShowThu Aug 18 7:00pm Jelly Vision Show - The Soundry, Vienna, VA - this is a live video cast interview, not so much of a show.  But you can watch at home!  who knows what will happen? I just love the folks from the Soundry, so I like to do stuff with them when I get a chance. Sat Aug 27 - Sun Aug 28 OPENING WEEKEND!!!

Fri Sep 16 9:00pm – 10:00pm DCVariety Social Aide Society Benefit / (AKA - Mab's Birthday Party) @ Palace We recently renamed Pastie-aid to DCVariety Social Aide Society.  The name was inspired by the turn of the century organizations that would throw parties to help out other members of the community when they were in need. It was what people did before there was health insurance.  Sound familiar? I'm planning another benefit Sept. 16th. This puppy will serve 3 purposes. 1. to pad the DCVariety safety net fund. If we get enough of a seed, we can turn over administration of the fund to a proper fund management organization. 2. To raise awareness of the fund and the need that it fills and 3. to celebrate my birthday! the best gift I can think of is supporting variety artists when they need it most! so, mark your calendars! Friday! Sept. 16th! and let me know if you want to help out with the show! perform, donate, kitten, whatever!
