Sorry, LJ: I'm running late for pre-rehearsal stuff, but I wanted to get this out, so you get a copy of a broadcast email:


Hi Englishy/Creative types--

This is a little late notice, I realize, but better late than never, I suppose.  If you happened to be at Pride this past Saturday, you may have noticed the Columbus Gay Men's Chorus's float, which was covered in crazy folk singing Boy George, the Buggles, etc.  Or maybe you weren't there, and you're wondering what in the WORLD that has to do with anything.

Here 'tis: This Friday and Saturday, CGMC presents We Love the 80s, a showcase of some of our favorite songs from the Decade that Brought Us Legwarmers (which is my personal pet term for it).  You name it, we've got it: Boy George, Michael Jackson, Toto, Bon Jovi, and more.  (Yes, of course, 'more' includes Madonna.)  Now, I know what you're thinking: "Mike wants me to go hear choral versions of pop songs?  That sounds... dull."

It ain't.

Trust me, I was worried when I learned the theme, back in January.  No more worries: the last thing we'd dream of doing is standing dully on the risers singing these songs in tuxes.


CGMC presents We Love the 80s
Dates: Fri/Say, June 26 & 27
Time: 8pm
Place: Capital Theatre at the Vern Riffe Center, downtown
Tickets: 29/27 (main floor/mezzanine) UNLESS you get them through me (see below)
Tix avail: http://www.cgmc.com ; OR through me, in which case there's a discount -- 2$ if I recall correctly.  Email me directly by midday Thursday with ticket count and level.

So come on, rat your hair and cut out the neckhole in your sweatshirt.  Don't you want to hear me pull out the solo on Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car"?  I would.

Shillfully yours,

You. D:

First I don't notice the post about Joseph until too late, then they schedule this thing during Origins on nights I can't miss. Grr.

At least I got to see the float. That's something, I guess.

Have fun anyway.
