Mab, Just Mab has been working with some amazing folks to keep DC’s ONLY Variety open mic going. We had to skip October, but we are back in November. And we are back, stronger than ever!

All the way from Richmond, VA – Moxie LaBouche from “Those Freaking Weirdos” always brings a creative and slightly odd spin with her burlesque.

Fresh off her rocking Figment, you loved her at the Intergalactic Speakeasy, DC’s darling songstress, Abby Nightingale will show you she’s more than just a pretty voice!

I recently met the lovely Dainty Dandridge at the Wonder Brunch at the Red Palace, and I instantly fell in love with her. I think you will too! She’s been charming darlings with her sultry tunes and sweet burlesque at Phase One.

Also new on the DC burlesque scene is the sweet Adora Coquette. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!
And back for more, Glam Gamz couldn’t stay away! But you’re not crying, this girl lives up to her name!

And you can’t do a variety show with some sweet tunes. But we are gonna do it DCVariety style. Frankie & Betty are an acoustic duo that will leave you short of breath from dancing and laughing.

The Clown Cabaret exchange brings us the incredibly talented Mandy Dalton! This lady has trained by Ringling Brothers, the Moscow Art Theatre School, and Cirque du Soleil, and now she’s hanging out with us! wow!

I cannot believe how awesome this month’s show is going to be! And the cover is still only $8!!! Any ~one~ of these acts alone is worth that! And you are getting more than 7 great acts! Plus the DCVariety Open Mic audience participation where you can win fabulous prizes!

Come out and see the Variety of DC!

DCVariety Open Mic Night @ the Red PalacePSA: CALLING ALL VARIETY ARTISTS!
I’ve been working with some amazing folks to keep DC’s ONLY Variety open mic going. We had to skip October, but we are back in November. and I want to come back stronger than ever!

This month I’m gonna focus hard on the more traditional variety arts, meaning: Magic, Burlesque, Sideshow, and a juggler if I can find one willing to work at the palace. acrobats and hoopers, some bellydance, and I would love a variety music act too! I’ll even take some clowns!

Let me know if you or anyone you know anyone who would be interested in performing! and spread the word!

This is a great opportunity to try out new material, get some video on the Palace stage, meet other performers in the area, and if you haven’t ever been to the Palace before, be seen by them!

Let’s keep new blood in the variety arts! Let’s keep the community growing stronger than ever!

I have been toying with the idea of starting a “New Artist Showcase” @ the Palace for a while now. I want to give performers who don’t know where to start a chance to show their stuff.

I have a few variety artists in mind, but I’m always on the look out for more. any suggestions?

any genera. jugglers, fire artists, dancers, burlesque, sideshow, circus, magic, comedy, etc.

also included are solo/duo variety musicians although I’m going to try to stay away from huge bands as there won’t be room for them on the stage, they take longer to set up, and there are already many venues for regular bands.

drop me an email if you are interested and please pass this on!
