A Dyke About Town: Curtis Salgado a knockout

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Curtis Salgado
Mercy was happy to take Cuteness to see Curtis Salgado at the Triple Door on March 4, since Cuteness had turned her on to the performer. Unfortunately, Cuteness had a headache and the warmup band, Too Slim and the Taildraggers, were playing too loud. Cuteness said their blues music sounded all the same. Mercy had to agree. Cuteness pooped out and had to miss the main act.

Salgado performed with his expressive voice and consummate harmonica playing. Freddie Gee's guitar was winning. David Fleisch's piano was soulful.

'Clean Getaway' was a fine opening, featuring Gee and Fleisch. 'Who Loves You' was funky and slow. A harmonica solo was the highlight of 'Both Sorry Over Nothing.' 'Everything Is Going to Be All Right' had strong harmonica and guitar.

'The Chicago Blues' had nice piano. The rock 'n' roll 'I Can't Stop' was a change of pace. The guitar solo in 'What's Up With That' sang.

Curtis said, 'Everything I do has to have a little grease,' even the slow love song 'Nobody But You.' Fleisch's piano broke Mercy's heart. 'I'm Too Loose' had delicious harmonica and piano.

'Twenty Years of B. B. King' was a breathtaking vocal and strong guitar solo. 'I Got Strong Suspicions About You,' was a well-written original of Salgados. The crowd shared Mercy's enthusiasm and brought the group back for an encore of 'Summertime Life.'

Eva Marie Saint
Cuteness got tickets for Seattle International Film Festival's production of North By Northwest, hosted by Eva Marie Saint on March 3. She couldn't attend because of child care needs, which made her very sad. Mercy's friend Jousts joined her.

The 87-year-old actress was amazingly spry. She said Cary Grant was a perfect gentleman. He noticed the lights on the set were making her squint and asked to have them turned down. She also explained that she had done all the activity of North by Northwest three weeks after having a baby. Someone asked her what she wanted out of her films. She said they shouldn't glorify violence, because she is a Quaker. The big screen at McCaw Hall was a good place to see the movie.

Perfect Match
Mercy has been enjoying Erin Dutton's Perfect Match. It is about golf professional Tiernan O'Shea and her romance with newscaster Elena Pilar. The golf tournaments are well-drawn. The sex scenes were satisfying.

Rainbow Contra
Mercy wants you to know about Seattle Rainbow Contra gender-free dance with The Rhythm Rollers on March 19 at Ballard Oddfellows Hall. There is a free lesson at 7 p.m. The dance runs 7:30-10 p.m. and costs $8. Folks have been having a rootin', tootin', foot stompin' heck of a good time. No experience or partner is necessary. All dances are taught. The Rhythm Rollers will be playing, with Suzanne Girardot calling. The event is for GLBTQ folks and friends. Dances are open community-building events for everyone. Please come out and help us build the Queer contra dance community. YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhdtBIEEGaw. Bring water and please come fragrant-free.
