Happy… Merry… DONE!
Holidays are over, but I just can’t stop GIVING! Scroll down for a message and a present from myself and Le Bonheur…..
NEW YORK and PORTLAND! I am coming for your hearts and minds….(also ears, hands, friends, drinks and snacks… I want it ALL, YO.)
NEW YORK CITY!
January 14th, 7:30PM Subculture :: SOLD OUT
2nd show added! January 14th, 9:30PM Subculture :: GET TICKETS
Storm gets all stripped down (musically, dude….MUSICALLY) for this yummy new downtown club.
MY STORMY VALENTINE
February 14th and 15th, 7PM Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall :: GET TICKETS
Put on your swankiest swaddling and grab your one and only (or your many onlys) and get thee to a nunnery. Wait…no…what’s the opposite of that? Oh, MY STORMY VALENTINE, where Portland’s own titular pillar of Love will hold court with the finest orchestra in the country. Together with the OSO, Storm spreads the love like hot honey, singing traditional love standards, re-imagined classics, and some of her own songs…… examining the many facets of ‘this thing called Love’ with gorgeous music (and of course, some bits and sass.) Get on it, these shows sell out quick and you don’t want to miss it. Seriously. No, seriously.
January 19 – Feb 1 :: GET TICKETS
Many of these are sold out already, but do try to catch one…..they’re a great way to shake and shimmy off late winter doldrums.
ATTENTION EVERYONE: We have all survived the Holidays. They are done. DONE. We are, once again, on the other side of a blessed stressed-out, holy solstice-y shit show. I don’t mean to sound cynical, big drunk bunches of fun were had at our Christmas and NYE shows…(as evidenced by this killer video from our Holiday Ordeal, starring Le Bonheur and the unfairly talented Rodney Hicks…video by Patrick Weishample….WATCH HERE)
Awesome, right? We had a royal blast, but I am still relieved to be on this side of The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year. This year it kinda felt like Christmas shuffled in all awkward, like a pissy teenager… and then 2013 was its drunk mom, who chased us out and into the new year with a broom. But…..Done. Done. Done. We made it. Now we just have to hang in there, keep warm and stay positive as we slog along towards another Spring, through the cold, wet hangover of late Winter’s limbo.
Personally, I love this time of year. It’s great for writing, meditating, cooking, catching up with friends and family without the stress of Christmas hanging over everything like some Yuletide sword of Damacles. I also get off on throwing away or donating huge loads of crap. Cleaning and purging myself of the unnecessary brik a brak and hooey bullshit I refuse to drag into my shiny new calendar. I need every single blank page this year has to offer; Finishing and releasing the Le Bonheur sub-standards record, write another heap of songs about hookers (more on that later), write a new show or two and gear up for another whirl through Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins. All the while touring with Pink Martini and Le Bonheur. Maybe I’ll get a rest hither and thither, but if you know me, you know I dig the cray-cray, the all-over-the-darn-place and the out there…
See you out there.
