Guest: Rye Rye

Some shows exude a kind of excitement that is palpable. You can almost grab at it and contain it in a glitter-filled bottle. My friend Dan and I were beyond excited for this show. We made our way to front of stage with some clever maneuvering and held our ground.
The last time we saw the Scissor Sisters was at Malkin Bowl in the pouring rain. Grrl it was pouring down and it wouldn't let up. That was a memorable show because we were in the presence of Queens. The Scissor Sister should be teaching glam lessons -- they are that fierce. They have managed to create a language that isn't degrading but celebratory. That in itself is worth the mention.
Rye Rye opened up the show and brought two incredibly handsome dancers with her. Her infectious dance tunes were contagious and had the entire audience dancing up a storm. I loved her unique aesthetic and her style. The back-up dancers though could hold their own. Rye Rye is the perfect opener for Scissor Sisters. Loved it.
Once Scissor Sisters hit the stage sounds from all around us erupted. I remember being really excited. It's just a visual dream being in front of such personalities. Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Del Marquis and Babydaddy together create a symbol of freedom and fun. Favourite moments include "Let's Have a Kiki" --- that song became my dance jam for a while afterwards.
What is a Kiki you ask? Well... a kiki 'is a party for calming all your nerves"
It was so. Much. Fun.
i want to learn this dance. Notice how adorable Del Marquis is with his tambourine.
