AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
Make your Yule-tide Gay!!!!! And what better way to do this than with Pittsburgh's favorite tattooed Jewishly leaning yet pan spiritual songstress??!?!? I am sure you have your traditions, and I hope you hold them with respect and dignity, love and remembrance.... We don't know where we're going if we can't remember the past, right? I remember once as a little girl, lighting my candles on the menorah I had made in shop class out of metal pop bottle tops and 2 x 4 wood, painted purple and green with gold glitter (even back then I was trying to get to New Orleans) with a blue glitter Star of David with hope in my heart, as these days I screw in the blue bulbs in my electric Chanukah menorah, just like the one my Grandma Claire up in Far Rockaway used to have.... and I remember Grandma Alene's Christmas tree in Tulsa, and Santa always went to her house.... but no matter where I was or whose winter holiday we were celebrating, as long as I got to eat a latke and have a candy cane, I was golden.... I am older now and even as I remember these things with sour creamed, apple sauced, and a pepperminty rose tinted fondness, I yearn for a new tradition, one who truly venerates and celebrates who I am today.
Let our new holiday traditions include Candy Cane Strip Teases, Dancing Dreidles and Elf-lesque while Phat Man Dee and her band play salacious holiday classics like "Let it Snow" and Ellington's "Sugar Rum Cherry" as Pittsburgh's top burlesque superstars shimmy it up one side and shake it down the other! Ho ho ho and a Merry ChristmaChannaKwanzaa to you and you and you! We don't care if you've been naughty or if you've been nice! We're gonna show you what Eve showed Adam and we're not talking about them apples! We're calling on and co-mingling the spirits of the Moulin Rouge and old Saint Nick so you can join us and celebrate the holidays with the classiest show in town!
