Tonight's early show at Joe's Pub, "We Sing Baby Dee! #3" will feature "Andrew WK, Corn Mo, Little Annie and Paul Wallfisch, Curtis Eller, Aimee Curl, Lance Horne, Mathew and Sarah, Philip Raia and Lila, a special guest appearance by 9 year old singer Frankky Lou Hightower from Kansas City and Baby Dee herself" Baby Dee plays the Stone Friday.

i thought it was pretty amazing that these bands brought everyone to their feet in Carnegie Hall. Everyone was there with good vibes celebrating an amazing culture that embraces compassion and tolerance. I have no complaints other than the 2 hipsters behind me who had a comment about everything that was wrong with the venue. Why go?
