Here's a little to add to the event this Friday night. If you're not up-to-date, please read my previous blog .
Charlie has no choice but to get rid of a lot of the treasures in his amazing building and here's how it's going to happen. At the event there will be "buckets" with index cards by them. If you see anything that you'd like to be the proud owner of, just grab an index card, write down your name and phone number and the best description of what it is you want with what you're willing to pay for it. After the event is over, Charlie will call everyone about said items and make arrangements for you to pick them up. No items will be removed from the building this Friday night! But you could be the proud owner of whatever you like the most about the place. ;)
The other thing is we've decided to MASQUERADE !!! Wear a costume if you can muster one up. If not, no big deal, but we're dressin up folks!! :)
That's all for now. Tell a friend, 234 Mill St. Cape Girardeau, Friday Jan 21 8pm

For those of you that came to the CD EVENT PLANNING PARTY, the fact that Charlie's Church is an AMAZING location for any event is not something I need to go into. For the rest of you:
Charlie Kent has invested 10 years or so converting an old Church on Mill St. in Cape Girardeau into a piece of artwork that comes to life when people are in it. It's a dark, whimsical, mysterious, magical blast into a Twilight Zone of eclectic wonder. That's the best I can do. It's visually stunning, a great place to wander for hours trying to discover all of it's nuances and the smaller works of art and collected gems that are it's motif. There are several 'bars' and conveniently, a stage...or more of an alter to the musical portion of Charlie's vision.
Because of the recent events surrounding the new Casino in Cape Girardeau, Charlie's Church is being demolished and will be lost forever. It's a tragedy, but it's happening so Charlie and I have decided to have one last HOORAH before it's gone. I'm honored to be the artist performing during the event and I'd like to be sure that anyone who has ever enjoyed the place comes out on Jan 21 (FRIDAY) after 7pm and spends the evening with us. I'd also like to invite anyone who has a deep regard for art, music, freedom, the weird and magical to get your hineys out for this. We're going to have a wonderful night to remember there and I have no idea how long the party will last but I'll bet NOT EARLY.
The deal. Bring your own drinks, bring some snacks, bring a CAMERA OR VIDEO CAMERA to help us document this wonderful place and bring your friends.
I'll probably be joined by some other musicians and I really don't know what all will happen but I'm excited.
See you on the 21st of January at 234 Mill St in Cape Girardeau.
Here's a bit of music from the last one!
