Delicious bites, daring musical feats, and, most importantly, drunken Cupidity, will reign at the third annual Cupid On Demand benefit!
World class folk rocker Erin McKeown and four other critically acclaimed songwriters will take the stage, and then put their talents up for auction. They'll be sold to the highest bidder, and given ONE HOUR to write that person a customized love song...and perform it that night! (All winning bidders receive a CD copy of the song and the original lyrics sheet.) Whether you're a spectator, a buyer, or the object of one of these one-of-a-kind tunes, it's bound to be an unforgettable experience!
Other performers include:
*Roots rock collective OLLABELLE
*Jazz-pop chanteuse CLARE MULDAUR MANCHON (CLARE AND THE REASONS)
*Moustachioed keyboardist extraordinaire FRANZ NICOLAY (THE HOLD STEADY)
*Improv hip-hop wonder REGGIE WATTS (Disinformation, Public Theater Under the Radar Festival)
Enjoy the musical skills on display while bidding your way to fancy dinners, Broadway show tickets, high end fashion, one-of-a-kind experiences, and (just in time for Valentine's Day) Dream Date packages to seduce your lovah in the silent auction.
Tickets are just $15 in advance, $20 at the door, and include a free drink, hors d'oeurves from Seven Ate Nine Catering and Butterfield Market, an extensive silent auction, handmade chocolates, an awe-inspiring cake from Brasserie 8 1/2's Martin Howard, aesthetically pleasing "cupids," and other fun. Tickets at www.newsoundstheatre.org.
Seriously, it's a crazy good deal, and it's going to be fun.
Oh, and proceeds benefit the productions and new work development of New Sounds Theatre and Beth Morrison Projects.
