So it’s pretty much December already. When did that happen? We’ve had an amazing year, thanks to the generous support of our friends, family and fans. Our trip to Adelaide Fringe last March feels like forever ago!
This little blog is to say happy holidays to you all, and to invite you to celebrate the silly season with us! We had planned a party and performance at the Red Rattler, but we’ve decided to cancel, and instead all head along to see Maxine Kauter Band and Genevieve Chadwick at Broadway Lounge, Dec 15. It’s a free gig and we’ll all be celebrating the year watching these lovely ladies sing and downing a few beers.
So, please come and join us as we celebrate Fringe success, indiegogo crowdfunding wonderfulness, exciting new acts on our books, planned tours, new singers, new musicians, new arrangements, collaborations with ali & the thieves, our first album: Live in rAdelaide, a new website, funding from the SGLBA, two new crew members (Erin & Karly), a great producer working with us on our Edinburgh tour and an exciting just announced mini cabaret festival we’ve programmed for Mardi Gras next year!
If you were planning to come to our Rattler gig and are disappointed, don’t worry, you can see Lady Sings it Better at Mardi Gras 2012. We’re producing a month-long season of queer cabaret, blackcat lounge, which is going to be absolutely amazing. You can book now at sidetrack.com.au!
Again, thank you all so much. Whether you turned up to a gig, liked one of our damn posts on facebook, donated to indiegogo, gave us constructive criticism, donated your time and energy to help us out or simply understood why a blackcat team member was too busy to catch up… we are hugely thankful and appreciative of your support!
We feel so privileged to be able to pursue this ridiculous dream.
