BYOT: BRING YOUR OWN (EMBELLISHED) TAMBOURINE
Neither a contest nor a karaoke show, NOTS is the Stevie Nicks celebration ne plus ultra - a riot of shawls, lace, baby's breath, twirling, tambourines and great performance. The much-loved annual, helmed by founders CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL and their JACKIE FACTORY production company, has featured celebrated performers including DEBBIE HARRY, JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND, BOY GEORGE, THE CRYSTAL ARK, BASIL TWIST, CYNDI LAUPER, VANGELINE THEATER, JOEY ARIAS, LEA DELARIA and many more. Born in 1991 at the tiny performance venue MOTHER at JACKIE 60, NOTS and its passionate audience inspired the feature film GYPSY 83 and even a "Jeopardy" question. It has launched generations of "Legends of Stevie Realness" across the U.S. and worldwide.
