FUNDRAISER FOR LOCAL ARTIST T.PAUL STE. MARIE
Local artists and performers have united to host a benefit Saturday, June 17 at the newly renovated Cobalt (917 Main Street), with all proceeds going to T. Paul Ste. Marie (www.t-paul.com). This show promises to deliver with a line-up to include, Ana Bon Bon, Billy-Bill Midnite, The Slickjacks, Bughouse 5, and headliners Hank Angel and His Island Devils, making the trip across the pond from Victoria, BC. Emcee'd by Sweet Soul Burlesque's, blonde bombshell Malaika Millions, with appearances by burlesque vixens Little Woo and Rita Star, and performance artist/comedienne Blyss, this is a night not to be missed.
Ste. Marie, spoken word artist/poet/actor/artist/emcee suffered a brain aneurism Sunday, May 28th. He is currently residing at the VGH neurological ICU, having undergone brain surgery/craniotomy, and is expected to remain in hospital for up to a month.
