“Dolling up…” a pre-dresden dolls rehearsal & chat tomorrow
In case you missed it in The September Althing (and by the by, Alex is gonna post up that video transcript TONIGHT and I’ll send a little edit alert)….there’s a WEBCAST TOMORROW!
It’s for $10+ patrons, it’ll be an intimate open-rehearsal and chat affair, and you can RSVP and start asking questions here. You need to be signed into patreon to access the link.
Its starts at 11:11 tomorrow (that’s October 4th here in NY, EST – the link to the crowdcast will show you your local start time!)
I am burning it at many ends at the moment.
I’m about to head to NYC for my sister’s Alyson’s 50th, then have a dozen family at my house for three days, then head to my little brother Alex’s wedding (two days after my sister’s 50th!!), then head straight off on a one-week detox vacation with dad, my sister and her dutch husband. All from about October 8-23rd. Then Brian lands – literally, the next day – and we begin dolls rehearsal.
I’ve been deep in trying to unpack and move into this old-new house, and have been trying to tend to Ash, who is finally, slowly, tender day by tender night, settling into his new routine. Everything is fragile as fuck.
Brian and I have started assembling a setlist, and I have so few hours to get everything done…and I was overdue for a webcast, so I am gonna do what I always fuckin’ do: KILL ALL BIRDS WITH ONE MAGICAL STONE and rehearse, muse, and talk about the upcoming shows with you all watching. As soon as I land from this long trip I have to have these songs in my bones. why not USE YOU????? So I’m GONNA.
I know the greatest hits that I need to brush off, and those are pretty much in my fingers, but I need to print out lyrics for some oldies.
I’ll be doing the whole cast from my house, coffee in hand. Michael is up here from NYC and he’ll hopefully wave hi and be there to tweak the lighting.
IF YOU HAVE ANY REQUESTS for dolls songs, send them my way! You never know what I might pull out.
If you’ve been considering upping your patronage, do it!!
Like I said in the Althing, I’m hoping to take the patreon over to monthly, and I’m hoping to do more webchats…if I can swing it. There’s a lotta music making coming up.
And bonus….if you want, I’ll read the new poem I wrote the other day.
Being your whole soul….
