It’s only November 3, but it’s already time to start thinking about your music play lists for all those upcoming holiday parties. That means tracking down cool tunes that are not just festive, but set the right vibe for a swanky cocktail soirée. Because we’re telling you right now, if even a single note of Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer or Nuttin’ For Christmas comes out of your speakers, we’re heading for the door and taking our gift with us.
At our parties this year, one of the sultry songstresses we’ll be grooving to is none other than local favorite, Miss Marcy. You may have caught her at any number of dive bars in the Dallas area (or possibly passed out behind one – she seems hip that way).
But if you don’t frequent jazz and blues clubs or you’ve been locked inside a hermetically sealed bubble for fear of catching the piggy H1N1, then we beseech you to discover Miss Marcy And Her Texas Sugardaddy’s (no, we still don’t know why she spells it with an apostrophe).
Punctuation be damned, she’s a helluva singer.
Taking her cue from racy ’20s and ’30s era music, she croons both original songs and covers you won’t hear performed very often — or anywhere else at all. She’s got a smoky voice and a sexy stage presence that’ll transport you back to the swingin’ days of Prohibition.
Thankfully, you can enjoy her tunes while sipping a 100% legal martini (or bottled beer if you’re a lesbian).
Catch her live this Friday at one of our fave lesbian-owned establishments and buy a CD while you’re there (they’re also available on her site). You can even listen to her music online before you go.
We’re sure you’ll agree that Miss Marcy is the ideal way to get a party started. Hell, if you really want to throw a killer gathering, book her for a live gig. We promise she won’t sing that annoying Chipmunk Christmas song.
Friday, November 6, 9:00 p.m.
2303 Pittman Street, Dallas
