Eartha Kitt and Harold Pinter

December 27th, 2008 · Comments Off on Eartha Kitt and Harold Pinter · By

We lost another two artists this Christmas; Eartha Kitt was a deliciously sassy and often campy singer and actress from the 50’s and 60’s; many have remarked that her death on Christmas is somewhat dramatic, considering her well-known 1953 performance of “Santa Baby” … anyhow,  I’ve always really liked her version of “Mink Shmink”: … […]

If James and Sarah have not convinced you, let me be the third person to entreat you to come see the Invisible Hand and DBB Plays Cups Monday night at The Box. It’s going to be an all-around fun show, very much in the holiday spirit, I imagine. To whet your appetite, here’s a photo […]

Sorry I didn’t blog about anything that happened tonight; all of today was pretty much just one continual trainwreck from start to finish. There was a screening at The Bridge, a Horsefang show at Outback and Corsair / 40 Boys show at Is…  hopefully y’all made it out to some of those. Tomorrow night / […]

Bridge show tonight

There’s a show at The Bridge tonight, with three cool bands you may not be familiar with… Tyger and the Lamb are a new-ish local mellow-rock act, and St Gods Hospital is the solo project by Caleb from the Handsome Guns. They’ve each been playing a few shows recently and getting a fairly warm reception. […]
