Surrender Dorothy!


I guess it's time for an update! Joan! Joan! Joan! Ok, that's all I got.
No really, it is. Sewing, selling, and Joan, who I got to meet in real life (haha). She's so cool. When I asked her why she chose leopards for the cover of her new release, she said, "Well, I just love big kitties, don't you?" Yes Joan, I do.
But here's the coolest thing about Joan Wasser, who performed one of the nights in a huge afro wig and black polyester retro dress with huge gold chain around her neck: She is into her fans. She is into people. And, she was so cute, she had a little bag with lots of permanent markers so that she could autograph cds, tshirts, arms, shoes, arms, or whatever! After the band played, she pranced right over and got behind the tshirt counter to chat with her fans. No snobby salespeople, just Joan and one other lucky volunteer who got in free that night for helping out.
And of course, humorous and entertaining banter with her audience between songs. That wasn't a sentence. Whatever. If you have the opportunity to check out Joan As Police Woman before she starts playing at the fabulous forum or something, you will be in for a huge treat. If you live on the west coast, you are too late this time around, and besides, I didn't see you in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle OR Vancouver.
Ok, so maybe you are thinking, that Susie, she's such a teenybopper! Whatevah! I love my music, and it does keep me young.
I hope you are all well out there in blogland!
Have a lovely day!
