Good day and salacious shenanigans to all my good people!
It's been a thick couple of weeks in my world, I recorded at the Church Recording Studios with my buddy Dana the final tracks to my impending release "Phat Man Dee & friends, Merry ChristmaChannaKwanzaa Vo. 1.1" with my brand new "Pgh XMAS" song, arranged by Miguel Sague III of Guaracha. The session was phabulous, I cannot wait to release it and make it available at the gigs!
But between now and then I would like to invite you tonight, October 21, if you reside in the Pittsburgh area to come see my husband's band "Amoeba Knievel" play at St James Tavern, located at 153 S 18th St in the South Side!
10:30 pm, $5, over 21 also performing are the Moodswingers! http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=222071077857331
Tomorrow I will be heading downtown to support the Justice for Jordan rally at Market Square. 2 years ago a high school student named Jordan was chased and beaten by 3 unidentified men who later turned out to be police officers. These officers beat him so badly he had braids ripped out of his hair, they arrested him for resisting arrest and though the charges were dropped against young Mr Miles, the police officers were never charged. They got a year of paid leave and are currently back on the job. I am not booked to sing at the rally or anything, but I will definitely be there.
For more information of this call for justice for a young musician so brutally beaten:

I am singing at the Tin Front Cafe with DJ Brother Strawberry! I love this restaurant, even if it is vegetarian... Their butternut lasagne makes me so happy..... The entire blocks around it in Homestead have the most amazing shops, like Mostly Mod and of course The Outer Skin.... Haven't been into Tracy's yet, but it is definitely on my list. So, anyhoo, come on out, it's a wonderful place and I hope to debut a couple of my new holiday tunes that night. Not sure if I will actually have the cd's in hand for sale by the time that show happens, but maybe.....
Tin Front Cafe, 216 E. Eighth Ave Homestead, PA 15120

Be well, I will send out more info about the holiday disc with "Pgh XMAS" on it and please, whatever you do on Halloween, know that in my soul, I have always wanted to dress up as Humpty Dumpty, After the Fall, and I have always wanted to have Tommy Amoeba dress up as All the King's Horses and All the King's Men, but so far to no avail. Maybe this will be the year. If you see a suspicious trail of egg yolk bubbling through the streets of Pittsburgh, PA, maybe then my dreams were fulfilled.....
Love, light and eggs, Mandee
