Virgo 19° (September 10)
I wake and go to Baie to pick up wine and then bring some over to the dressing rooms. Tomorrow there is no bar because the space is closed so I have to basically create one. I have my tech today at 11AM. I will get there and the piano tuner will rather rudely tell me to come back later. We will have a snack at Canteen—a grilled cheese for me—S. has already lunched there. We shall see Rob and Loic who are flying tonight to Denmark. We will walk back to the hotel and regroup in time to go to a 5pm dinner at Nor’Easter but they will be closed for a private party; so we will go to Joon Bar for a very small snack that will nonetheless break the bank. Eric there is one of my favorite people in Ptown. There were about twenty four people and the first show and really I don’t expect anyone to show for mine.And I am relatively calm. In the dressing room doing my thing mainly obsessing over my hair not my lines. There is plenty of Aquanet which I’ll use and I’m in comfortable jeans and shoes and a black jacket. I am not at my fighting weight but there is a lesson in all of this. My body is feeling rather beaten up and I need to take a break after this.
Anyway the first show tonight is Rachelle and she is such a lovely presence. I will say: Thank you Rachelle Garniez for your magical performace last evening at the Afterglow Festival you had us all wrapt with your soaring talent, wit and grace. Happy journey back to NYC where everyone must go and see your I Can Sing A Rainbow! Then about myself I will say this: I’d like to thank Quinn Cox for my show last night at the Afterglow Festival. The tiny audience was mostly strangers but they were delightful. I delivered. I entertained. I kept the audience’s attention. They laughed and moaned for all the right reasons. I accompanied myself on piano, once with my favorite guest star. I got snaps. I filled the gap on a performer who breached contract last minute and dropped out. With all I already had on my plate, I wrote and performed a 75 minute show with music in the course of five days. And I proved the MF show must go on. I feel pretty great right now (I look like bloody hell) but….I feel wonderful. (I’m flipping over backward!) We are still extra fundraising to make ends meet! Where my Sparkers at??
Rachelle’s show really is magic. She moves from stage station to station—guitar, piano, accordion, and two different sorts of bells, one on a twirling wheel, and other multicolored traditional bells on which she played Somewhere Over the Rainbow. She has this really cool growling lower register. Like falsetto/soprano in reverse. And then otherwise she has a pretty middle-range voice I would say which, too, rings like a bell. She is really wry and funny in a more comedic way then say The Roches were but there are definite similarities. And in the end, almost seeming to be doing so without meaning it, she was highly comedic, recally a movie with Jack Webb and Peggy Lee where she sings I Can Sing a Rainbow which is the title of Rachelle’s show. She is a Pisces and was dressed like the sea in waves of della robbia blue silkiness—a shirt, a dress, a tunic? All layers and scarves. What a great talent. She did our first ever show at Elmo in Chelsea back in the day.
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
