Hello shining stars, NOTS Legends and our Enchanted audience worldwide –
It’s been such a long time since we’ve posted here and you are so often in our thoughts. This is the time of year we hear Stevie’s music everywhere – Rhiannon in the supermarket, Enchanted at a Beltane celebration. It is so strange to hear Stevie’s “hauntingly familiar” music without being in the final days of NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES production. We have no one to share our shawls or interpretations of obscure Stevie Nicks or Fleetwood Mac lyrics with.
BUT, thanks to a very cautious re-opening schedule in both NYC and New Orleans, the availability of vaccines and Spring herself, we dare to look forward to our return. It is heartening to join both cities in this rebirth as Summer begins, but all of our NOTS venues are still closed. I wish we had more concrete news for you about the new date for NOTS 30 or our next NOLA edition, but after two cancellations we don’t want any more false starts.
When we cancelled NOTS 30 again last Summer we couldn’t imagine not being with you this long. To spend a second Friday night in early May without our most beloved audience is hard. As one of our stars put it “NOTS is the only night of the year when the whole room levitates”. But we promise to be back with you in that most special room as soon as it can be NOTS again – twirling, singing, loving and packed!
In Magick, and Missing You Terribly-
Chi Chi Valenti
Yet Another Note About Ticketmaster Refunds:
Like promotors everywhere, we are horrified by the continuing stalling of Ticketmaster on issuing NOTS 30 ticket refunds. We urge you to contact the Better Business Bureau if you are still owed one – that seems to be the most productive at the moment.
