WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Inspired by the recent/current economic depression, the same sort of fearful political clime that led to the rise of the Third Reich (and in these times, Rand Paul), the downtown provacatuese, Tammy Faye Starlite, will portray the sublimely Teutonic, glamorously decadent Velvet Underground chanteuse, Nico (nee Christa Paffgen) in a dark, Weimar-cum Warhol Kabaret Konzert (in a live interview format), and she'll sing some of Nico's most beloved lieder, such as "Femme Fatale," All Tomorrow's Parties," and "I'll Be Your Mirror," as well as Nico's classic covers of such classic tunes as David Bowie's "Heroes," Rogers and Hart's "My Funny Valentine," Bob Dylan's "I'll Keep It With Mine" and The Doors' "The End." The show will culminate with a rousing finale of "Deutschland Uber Alles" (in German, of course). It will be a crystalline theatrical nacht to remember, with dreamlike reminicenses about Lou Reed (and Jews in general), Andy Warhol, John Cale, Jackson Browne, David Bowie, Alain Delon (and a passing reference to Michael Jackson). Nico was, and remains, a heroin(e) and emlem for these dark days of civil unrest and our unceasing fascination with sybaritic self-desctruction and the willful deconstruction and annihilation of beauty.
