Basil Twist and Joey Arias
One of my favorite performers, Joey Arias, is in pre-production for his latest show. There’s one slight snag: this is New York and this is an expensive place to be. With the help of the King of Downtown, Earl Dax, they are trying to raise money to fund Joey’s next show – Z Chromosome: The Essence of Joey Arias. They have 8 days to raise $7,500. I think this goal can be reached if we all dig deep. For those who don’t know Joey’s work – he is truly amazing. His last show “Arias With A Twist,” was so great, I saw it 5 times. It played to sold out shows in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Berlin, and Z Chromosome is going to be entirely different! The costumes will be done by fashion maven Thierry Mugler. It’s going to be the show of the year, so please click here and give whatever you can, no matter how small. Let’s make this happen!
Ana Matronic - Tonight!!!!
