December 2017 Shows and New Year’s Eve!!!

November 30th, 2017

This holiday season let’s avoid loss of life through strongly negative feelings and sad depression through massive consumption blue feelings and just be happy once in a while for hot coffee and a warm bed. And steaming showers, imagine if they took away bathrooms! I’ll be dancing for you and hopefully will get you involved too.

With love and a strange attitude,
