romance & other rumours

For those of you who couldn't be there... a few photos from the debut of our pop-cabaret act The Dime Store Dollies!
The idea behind Dime Store Dollies is to take well know pop-songs (60s through present) and give them a 1920s makeover.  This time we dealt with songs about love and heartache. To give you an idea, a few of the songs we covered were... Lovefool - the Cardigans / Real Love - John Lennon / After You've Gone - Marion Harris (this was actually from the 20s) / Take on Me - A-ha (plus others).

I am told that it went very well but in my head it was all a bit of a nervous blur! We didn't have many photos from the show this time - luckily, the Brit snapped these ones! but we are planning another show in late October so do not fret if you missed us, there will be a round two!
Oh, one last thing, I wanted to quickly give a little mention to Sue at Giant Dwarf who made these amazing starlette crowns!! It's pretty much my favorite thing ever! thanks again, Sue!

It sounds like a great show!  Nothing like some 20s style music!  And I love the star crowns.  How amazing!

This is such a clever and magical idea!!! For all of us that lives like, very, very far away, I hope you can get a little youtube clip or something from you next show, it would be so nice to listen to your performance! Oh, and you look lovely by the way!!!
