But who's gonna be there?

Um. Holy crap. Why is this in some weird diner in White Center again?
Well, now that's a funny one. Vera over at Village Green Perennial Nursery offered Meander's Kitchen the chance to host a performance by Michelle Shocked, which, for a wee little breakfast joint run by a lady who likes ladies with radical politics, sounded like the bees knees. Vera and Miranda were both pretty much horrified by Ms. Shocked's recent antics at her show in San Francisco, however, and summarily cancelled.
Miss Cherry Tart and Miranda in the midst of putting together a burlesque and cabaret already something with a sexy mashup of our queer DIY punk ideals and a fondness for the subculture of the 1920's. The answer seemed clear. We shifted just a touch, and rescheduled.
And this is a benefit? Not just your garden variety awesome, glitter studded celebration of life and love? Why is that?
Because it's really fucking important that queer kids are able to grow up without hating themselves or feeling the need to live in denial. So we want to use this fleeting wisp of press and publicity to help stack some dollar bills for organizations that spend every day taking care of the kids in our Family. Because that shit is necessary. Because You Are Loved!
