As usual, I’m running around like a headless chicken trying to get everything ready for tomorrow’s Gay Ole Opry. But it will be worth it! There’s nothing better than seeing everyone dressed up and festive and out to celebrate queer country music, community and two-stepping!
We’re gonna play an extra-dancey set, too, so I’m hoping people will start two-stepping early. And we’ve got a brand new song to debut! Plus a Chris Isaak cover! Back in the day when I was lonely, dreamy teenager, I remember coming home from a terrible party and listening to this song all night until I finally fell asleep. And in those days, listening to a song on repeat took some actual manual labor. You had to rewind! And know which spot to rewind to! Ok, fine, now everyone knows I’m old.
So dear friends, I hope you’ll be able to come out to Littlefield in Brooklyn tomorrow night! It’s going to be an amazing show with five bands, a two-stepping lesson and dancing with DJ Andrew from Big Apple Ranch, an all Dolly Parton raffle, a bake sale to benefit the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, and a community storytelling project. All the details are here on the facebook. See you soon!
