* Gives Veronique & Seth Seattle Cab Fest Performances A Thumbs Up

11/15 Seattle International Cabaret Festival- Final Report

We made it! It was quite a trip... here's some thoughts on the last day of the first ever Seattle International Cabaret Festival.

The day started early at the Can Can with the Peculiar Pretzelmen playing live accompaniment for the short film "Widow's Walk" (and related other pieces).

After that Seth Bedford & Veronique Chevalier got in one last performance before the end of the Festival. The setting fit the duo like a glove.

The Castaways' performance was moved from the Can Can to the final blowout at the Moore so...

The Festival Finale Spectacular!

Not suprisingly the event was like the rest of the Festival... not so much writ small (this was the biggest stage after all) as writ compact.

Almost too many to recall...
The Bad Things, The Castaways, Circus Contraption, The Heavenly Spies, Miss Mamie Lavona, Orkestar Zirkonium, The Peculiar Pretzelmen, Robert Rial's Bakelite 78, Scarlet Room, Toybox Trio, Vinsantos, Iva Handfull, Queen Shmooquan, Stella Rose, Waxie Moon... (I'm Sure I missed somebody...)

And a special appearance by Vince Mira!

The show ended with Orkestar Zirkonium leading a parade of performers & audience down to the Can Can for the closing party.

It's still a lot for me to take in.

But I have to consider any event that destroys lucidity a a success!
With a bit of luck I'll have my brain back on line by next year's festival.
