THE PIANO HAS BEEN DRINKING (NOT ME) Begins at The Underground Lounge Today
Amy Winehouse, Jack Kerouac, Kurt Cobain, Billie Holiday, Tennessee Williams, Tom Waitts, Natalie Cole, Rufus Wainright... the list of artists and creative people who have had alcohol or substance abuse problems is a very long list. The Piano Has Been Drinking is a review (of sorts) that takes a look at artists who are inspired by their vices, celebrates the triumph of artists who have overcome them, pays tribute to those who were consumed by them and gives encouragement to those who may be struggling with vices.
After a sold out performance at Don't Tell Mama, Artistic Pride Productions announces and extension of its cabaret performance, The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not me), at The Underground Lounge. The Piano Has Been Drinking explores the association between artists and their vices.
It is Artistic Pride Productions' mission to promote and cultivate their work as an extension of the work of their peers. APP creates an environment in which artists who are marginalized in the commercial art world such as minorities, women and non-traditional artists have a place to not only create but thrive. Towards that end, APP's monthly Cabaret Series provides artists across all genres a place to create art and showcase their talents.
Performers: Ben Curtis, Matthew Hardy, Stacey Haughton, Julianne Merril, Heaven Stephens, Anthony Wills, Jr., Kenny Jaworski and a host of rotating guests including: David Beck, Libya Pugh, Marti Cummings, John Berno, Mara Jill Herman, Eric Aviles, Steven Willis and more!!
