Fashionista - Mercury Mad

Glam Rock or good ol' punk?  Whatever you want to call him, Mercury Mad rocks it!  After listening to his music and watching his videos, it really comes as no surprise that this self-styled "sarcastic Messianic figure" is theatrically trained.  And beautifully so.

The Bonney Anne - Firewater

I think I'm finally starting to get my feet back under myself after last week's dream come true.  On Wednesday of last week (September 26), my band, Juana Ghani, had the amazing honor and privilege of opening for one of my very most favorite bands of all time - FIREWATER!  I would love to go on and on about the whole experience, but honestly, there are no words that can even come close to expressing the magnitude of the amazingness of it all.  Not only is Tod A absolutely brilliant in his songwriting, not only is the entire band absolutely mesmerizing in their playing - individually and collectively, not only was their set incredibly tight - they were all so completely genuine and nice and gracious and absolutely wonderful as people, too.

I've been a fan of Firewater for years.  We own every single album they've ever released - including one that is only available digitally these days and is not very well known at all.  Every single album is amazing.  And this new one - just released here on September 11, 2012 - is equally fabulous!  Every single song from the opening anthem of "A Little Revolution" right through the contemplative "The Bonney Anne" - FAB-U-LOUS!
