Sisters Of The Moon (Live)
THE JACKIE FACTORY is thrilled to announce that their 20th annual edition NOTS 20 will be held on May 14, 2010 at the HIGHLINE BALLROOM in NYC. This year’s moonlit, milestone edition was inspired by one of Stevie’s most enduring and iconic songs, SISTERS OF THE MOON. Though Stevie has not performed this song much of late, it has remained a showpiece and staple of some of NOTS most thrilling performers past and present. Expect a midnight sky lit up by La Nicks’ most enduring archetypes and images, including the Nightbird, The Welsh Witch and The Moon Goddess.
This year’s bill features Legends of Stevie Realness from all eras of the show, and honors them all, our Sisters (and Brothers) of the Moon. “Enchantresses of Ceremony” CHI CHI VALENTI and HATTIE HATHAWAY will introduce this staggering cast: Returning performers are BELLADONNA (CALIFORNIA), SHERRY VINE, JUSTIN BOND, THE HO-HOS, GYPSY WILDE, JAZMEN FLOWERS (MISSISSIPI), SWEETIE, ADAM DUGAS, AMBER MARTIN & MIA THEODORATUS, HEATHER LITTEER, CHARLENE CORAN (COLORADO), ST.
