Keeping up with the latest mess is leaving me tired and depressed. This is not America, right? I mean...
ah, fuck it.
Anika is having a little soiree at her place to celebrate her willing entry into the world of "unemployment". It was a path chosen carefully and cautiously and one that will hopefully pay off when she drops a novel on us. I can't wait to see what worlds spin in that lovely mind of hers!
I think there's some event at The Pretty Parlor tonight -- oh, here it is:
PRETTY PARLOR CELEBRATES LOCALLY MADE FASHION, ART, AND MUSIC
AT NINTH-ANNUAL GREENWOOD/PHINNEY ARTWALK ON MAY 7th
(Seattle WA) – Greenwood gets a glamorous makeover on Friday, May 7th, when the Pretty Parlor presents a luscious line-up of local fashion designers, artists, and live musical interludes. Housed at Pretty Parlor headquarters (6729 Greenwood Ave. N.), this all-ages, FREE event salutes avant-garde get-ups and the art of indie spirit. “Seattle’s local designers represent the cutting edge of today’s fashion,” says Pretty Parlor owner Anna Lange. “We’re showcasing a tantalizing tsunami of talent.” The Artwalk’s featured artist is Tamara Evans, whose bold yet quirky, girlish portraits are inspired by vintage glamour.
Music and fashion show schedule is as follows:
7:00pm: Nana Bão and Her Bossa Boys
A semi-serious, semi-delirious, wholly delicious tribute to 1960s Brazilian groove.
8:00pm: Lady Krishna’s Peppermint Lounge
Steve Buscemi has compared these velvety underground stylings to “Marlene Dietrich on acid.”
9:00pm: Local Designer Fashion Show with DJ Superjew
Including Agent-X, Pin-Go-In, Zuzupop, Schwa Designs, Miss Lauren G and more.
10:00pm: Tap Explosion
Shirley Temple channels Ziggy Stardust in this experimental dance duo.
Specializing in vintage finds and distinctive style, the Pretty Parlor has supported
local fashion designers, jewelry makers, artists and artisans since 2001.

I wasn't planning on going, but now that I see DJ Superjew will be in the house, I may go after all. That girl is FOINE!
Also, the latest Blue Disguise Records release, a tribute to the Young Fresh Fellows is popping at The Crocodile Cafe tonight!
I could be very busy this evening...
