Night of 1000 Stevies

Stevie Nicks (who is currently on a break from Fleetwood Mac's 3-month Unleashed tour) (and not actually pictured above) will stop by New York City for a visit to the Union Square Barnes & Noble on Tuesday, March 31st (7pm). The autograph session event will promote Nicks' Live In Chicago DVD and The Soundstage Sessions CD, both out that day on Reprise Records. The CD is comprised of 10 songs from the live-show DVD, which was recorded in October 2007. Nicks appears on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon the following day, April 1st.

If you wanted to catch Fleetwood Mac in NYC, their MSG gig already happened (on March 15th).

"Opening with 1975's jubilant "Monday Morning," the band's remaining four main members wove through a two hour and 20 minute set that functioned as a nearly unbroken greatest hits medley." [Daily News]

But still coming up is annual party Night of 1,000 Stevies, "the biggest and best-loved Stevie Nicks fan event in the world," which is taking place at the Highline Ballroom in NYC on Friday May 1st. The event, presented by the Jackie Factory, is in its 19th year. The theme is "Songs of Rhiannon," a reference to the Fleetwood Mac tune "Rhiannon" (included on Nicks's live DVD) and the ten Nicks-penned songs about the mythological Welsh goddess. Tickets are on sale for the event.

Night of 1000 Stevies

NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES, New York City's legendary STEVIE NICKS homage, returns for its nineteenth annual edition on May 1 at THE HIGHLINE BALLROOM. NOTS 19: SONGS OF RHIANNON will be a May Day marathon of twirling and enchantment, produced by the JACKIE FACTORY NYC. This year's theme - and the centerpiece of the show - are the ten "SONGS OF RHIANNON" penned by STEVIE NICKS in her BUCKINGHAM NICKS days. In stage decor, visuals and costuming, NOTS 19 pays homage to the Celtic white witch RHIANNON - fitting for a date that is both MAY DAY and BELTANE.

The bill for this year's show is now closed, with twenty-five show segments featuring both the timeless stars and new discoveries that make "The Night" so special. Returning Legends of Stevie Realness include NYC Dragstars (and Project Runway supermodels) SHERRY VINE and SWEETIE, perennial NOTS divas THE HO-HOs (CATHY CERVENKA and JILL PANGALLO), AMBER GARBO (Las Vegas), GYPSY WILDE, NOTS 19 cover girl JAZMEN FLOWERS (Mississippi), BILLY O, MISS GUY and GOON SQUAD, CHARLENE CORAN (Colorado), HEATHER LITTEER (aka JESSICA RABBIT DOMINATION), LIZZIE DAVIS (Texas), THE DIVINE GRACE, THE PIXIE HARLOTS, TIFFANEY (of MIRROR IN THE SKY), AMBER RAY, DARLINDA JUST DARLINDA, MISS KELLY WEBB and ADAM JOSEPH. Show producers CHI CHI VALENTI and HATTIE HATHAWAY will again serve as "Enchantresses of Ceremony" and all-Stevie/Fleetwood DJs CRAIG SPENCER, SAMMY JO and POISON EVE will keep the dancefloor Hopelessly Enchanted between show sets.

The producers are delighted to announce this year's new performers and participants, beginning with NYC Ballet icon and teacher JOCK SOTO, who will choreograph the show's opening number. The other 2009 debuts at SONGS OF RHIANNON are theater artist TAYLOR MAC, aerialist BELLA LUNA, dance music diva MYNDY K, singer-songwriter COREY TUT with PATTY BRUCE, darkwave princess LADY ZOMBIE, underground crooner ADAM DUGAS with harpist MIA THEODORATUS and Drag King BILLY MOTION as LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM. NOTS 19 also welcomes WARNER BROTHERS RECORDS, who are donating souvenirs from the new STEVIE NICKS "LIVE IN CHICAGO" DVD and "THE SOUNDSTAGE SESSIONS" CD - both due out on March 31.

Suggested Dress: Rhiannon Realness, Important Celtic Jewelry, Black Roses, Wizard Sleeves, Enchanted Eveningwear, May Day Maiden, Lindsey Or John McVie Warlock Effects, Birds of Rhiannon wings and feathers, Best Pre-Raphaelite Hair In Rock and Roll, Thistle Accents, Sorcerer Capes and Cloaks, Bedazzled and Beribboned Tambourines or Welsh Witch (Dark Ages to Darkwave) -[press release]
