I’m in the Fringe Cabaret fashion show tonight.

I’m doing the music/sound effects/space-folk vibes for a very psychedelic, lightly theatrical variety show this month. And tonight there’s an event featuring taste tests from all the plays and productions involved in the larger Hollywood Fringe Festival that our production is a part of. There will be zombies and models and feathers and possibly even people impersonating Duran Duran. And they needed representatives from our performance of Psychodelicate’s Magical Mystery Show to walk down a catwalk, in costume, to promote the show.

And out of all the gorgeous actors and musicians in our performance, who do you think they decided to pick to walk said catwalk? That’s right, me! Apparently I’m just so attractive that people want to see me walking a good 2-3 feet higher than they do (which is kind of overkill–I mean, have they seen my platform shoes?).

But I’d love to see some familiar faces, even if mine is covered in a sheen of psychedelic glitter and ancient runes!

So come on out, dance, watch a film, have a drink, and see just how psychedelically sexy I can be when your perceptions of time itself start melting down the shimmering candy striped barber polenta rose in time saves ninety fiverybody needs somemoneysomehowitzer bird flying?
