PMD @ Union Project Tonight & in Rochester, NY tomorrow!

Ho diggity.....

It's been a lovely thick and crazy week my friends!  
I have been very excited, just sent the artwork and music off to the disc making people, 1000 copies of "Merry ChistmaChannaKwanzaa Vol 1.1" are on their way! Cover art by Rob Rogers of "Brewed on Grant" fame on the outside and my new hit single "Picksburgh Xmas" arranged by Miguel Sague III within..... As soon as I have them in my hot little hands I  hope to sell each and every one of you at least 2 copies. 

Until then..... tonight I am singing at the Union Project at 801 N  Negley Avenue in East Liberty, for the Initiative for Transgender Leadership. They are hosting a Commencement Celebration. ITL is about to honor their first fellow, Rayden Sorock. We are celebrating the completion of the inaugural 10-month fellowship program dedicated to the professional development and leadership of transgender youth in Pittsburgh. The event is free and open to the public. I will be singing from 6:45 until 7 pm. Would love to see you if you are

Tomorrow I am headed to Rochester, NY to perform at Abilene's Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way with Carlos Peña and Miguel Sague III. I  have gotton some great press on it, apparently Rochester is as excited to have me as I am to sing to them!

Friday w/ DJ Brother Strawberry & Sat w/ Bella Sin!

Hey hey hey!

I hope you had a phabulously phreaky All Hallow's Eve, I know I did. My favorite costume was the psychiatrist dressed as the 1%. This week has been sooo busy, I have been ensconced in finishing my new holiday album "Merry ChristmaChannaKwanzaa Vol. 1.1." at Church Recording Studios and tomorrow night I shall debut my brand new "Pittsburgh XMAS" song at my show at the Tin Front Cafe in Homestead. I will be singing from 7 - 10 pm with DJ Brother Strawberry who spins fairly eclectic but a usually jazz based set at my new favorite vegetarian restaurant. Tomorrow I shall try the pumpkin gnocchi. I hope you stop by, they've a full bar, wonderful scene, great beer, really delicious veggie food and me!
Friday November 4, 2011 , 7 - 10 pm, all ages
(I don't think they have a cover charge but if they do it won't be more than $3.)
216 E. Eighth Ave  Homestead, PA 15120

The next day I just added a couple shows to my schedule, Bella Sin of La Femme Mystique Burlesque (Cleveland, OH) has invited me to join her show at the Christine Fréchard Gallery. Bella is just a gorgeous dancer and has hosted me on some outrageous shows in Cleveland.
Originally of Juarez, Mexico this delightful entertainer delights me every time I see her, her bump and grind es muy delicioso! Joining me on the musical plane are my wonderfully talented friends Carlos Peña on guitar & Miguel Sague III on vocals and conga.
