BLOG: Saturday, Mar 2, 2013 @ 11:03 PMThe Badass & Baroque Tour To Las Vegas (To Marry The Scaggsvilles)
So here’s the deal – Matty Scaggsville (search: Art By Matto) and I were thinking we’d get hitched in Vegas… But he said, “we gots no money, honey.” And so I said to him, “Hey, let’s tour the U.S and play shows in several cities from here to Vegas and raise money along the way to pay for the travel and the ceremony!!!” Since he is a painter and I am a musician, and we are both broke ass bitches, we thought we’d call it THE BADASS & BAROQUE TOUR TO LAS VEGAS. SPunky name, huh?! 😉
I have since joined a vocal contest, the winner of which gets $100,000. Yyyyup. With that money, I could hire the band for the tour (pay them a guaranteed fee so that it is not such a risk for them to take off from their regular life around here). Then I could call the venues and say, “Hey, Mr. Venue Owner. You don’t know me, but I want to play there.” To which Mr. Venue owner will say, “Yeah, but what’s in it for me?!” And I’ll say, “Well, glad you asked, Mr. Venue Owner. You see, I already have my moneys so you can take those ticket sales and donate them to charity… What kind of charity? Well, anything that supports ART IN EDUCATION – local agencies, schools, and organizations that work towards giving lil’ uns access to the arts. This coolness creates a natural draw to the venue (on top of Badassness of the band and the tour!!” ;-). Why wouldn’t they book us!? They’d get tax breaks and mighty fine PR in their city.
The way I see it, EVERYBODY WINS!! I get to go on a tour with my original band and get married in Vegas to my sweetie pie. My band gets paid to have a shit ton of fun traveling around the US playing music. WE ALL HAVE AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME! The venues make money and get great local attention; and cities get support for art programs for their peoples! Fuck yeah.
….and then we THROW A HUUUUUGE PARTY IN THE VALLEY THAT YOU ARE INVITED TO!!!
…SO.. why the heck NOT?!
First things is first — we gotsta GET THAT PRIZE MONEY, MA HUNNY BUNNY!!!
