Please come and support not only my book but the over 35 painters, photographers, sculptors, writers, empresses, performance & spoken word artists and basically living legends I collaborated with over the past two years, turning myself over to them and doing anything & everything they asked. I became the very willing and eager to please muse. Original work from each of the following artists will be on display ; Maria Pineres, Darren Ankenbauer, Natasha Gornik, Benjamin Fredrickson, John J Spencer, Scooter LaForge, Charlotta Janssen, Shannon Greer, Maria Pineres, Devin Elijah, Marne Lucas, William Spangenberg, Brett Lindell, Joel Handorff, Dick Mitchell, Scott Pasfield, Jeffrey Silverman, Kate Schellenbach, Robert Siegelman, Todd Allen Jaeger & Dietmar Busse. A way eclectic collection of friends, ex lovers, just getting to know one another kids on the scene, long lost friends and unrequited loves. Reading random impromptu selections from the book will be the geniuses Chi Chi Valenti, Michael Alago, Paul Wirhun, Nicholas Gorham, Max Steele, Alberto Cortes, Jake Ryan & Derek Nicoletto. Kyle Kupres will seduce us with his violin while Nicholas Gorham tranfixes us with the vocal inflections of tomorrows fading film star magically reappearing in a raspier and so more realistic take on today. Sheba Legend drops the soulful, slightly nostalgic beats that take us back but not too far and only to the good places like Area where she made many a night memorable as you disco danced with yer baby. Chad Ferro is gonna get as naked as possible and remind all of us why we still love burlesque, live for correct ink and just couldn’t be happier that Mr. Ferro is once again ready to serve the kids fiercely in NYC, Thankfully for me first ;) He hints at strip Twister and bad boy shenanigans in the back courtyard of our favorite and the most ultra correct gallery to come around in a long time MUNCH, created, inspired, run and spearheaded by the ever amazing Lillan Munch. This is going to be an awesome one night only event. I will be signing the first 50 copies of the book throughout the madness. It will all be spread out between 5 - 6pm for an early viewing and then Sheba rocks the house whilst the performers & readers randomly appear at a seconds notice, sprinkled through-out the next 3 hours till 9pm.
