I haven’t had time to blog what with all the crazy exciting stuff happening for us… So I’m relying on bullet points to be concise in summarising what’s been going on for blackcat!
- We’re producing more acts! Stay tuned for blogs introducing the amazing Beauty and the Bastard (for whom we’re producing an Adelaide tour) and ali & the thieves (a gig at Chapel by the Sea in Bondi)
- We’re still fundraising for our Edinburgh Fringe tour and we’re 26% there! Help us out?
- We’ve been interviewing interns and we’ll announce the new addition to our team soon!
- We have a season of new songs coming up for Lady Sings it Better! Lady Sings it Better than ever plays Camelot Lounge Nov 8, 9, 10.
- We’re applying for all the grants in the world!
- We have another HOMAGE coming up, at The Fusebox, December 2, with Tom Sharah, ali hughes, Brett Every and Pilot Darcy! Tix go on sale soon!
- We’ve programmed a month-long season of cabaret for Sydney Mardi Gras next year, and are putting the finishing touches on web copy and such… Stay tuned for more info about blackcat lounge: a season of queer cabaret…
- We need sponsors! Want a captive cabaret audience throughout Mardi Gras, all reading and hearing about your brand and its support of independent arts? Contact us now!
- We’re applying to the Sydney Comedy Festival. If we get in, we’ll learn to be funny…
- Lady Sings it Better are sadly saying farewell to the beautiful Fiona Pearson, who’s off to focus on her own projects. Fi will be sorely missed as she’s been such a warm, fun, energetic, hilarious and sweet member of the team. We wish her all the best, and will soon let you know who our new 6th singer is!
- We’re burning 500 copies of our first album, Lady Sings it Better: Live in rAdelaide! We’re super excited about this and will be selling them at our next gig! You can also grab one (and heaps of other prizes) by donating on indiegogo!
- We’re working with fabulous, wonderful, generous people, on design, photography, video, costumes and more. Stay tuned to hear about Beth Allen, Jasmine Christie, Viv McGregor, Shell Horn, Fin Long, Emily Spencer, Cameron Power, Linda Campbell, Lucy Randall and more wonderful crew behind the scenes!
So that’s where we’re at…what’s been happening for you?
