THE JACKIE FACTORY NYC PRESENTS
NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STEVIES 22:
FRIDAY MAY 11, 2012
THE HIGHLINE BALLROOM NYC
431 WEST 16TH STREET NYC
Greetings from downtown New York City to all of our long time Enchanted Gypsies, and those who have joined this newsletter since last year's NOTS. We are so delighted to announce the date and theme for our twenty-second annual NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES, returning for its fifth year to the THE HIGHLINE BALLROOM. NOTS 22: DREAMS UNWIND will be held on Friday, May 11, and tickets will go on sale later this month. Our 2012 edition was inspired by the instantly iconic MOONLIGHT (A VAMPIRE'S DREAM) from last year's STEVIE release IN YOUR DREAMS (and its campy, fanged, gorgeous, owl-heavy video.) We will also pay homage to Stevie's many dream-laced songs and references, most famously the FLEETWOOD MAC opus DREAMS, and the Stevie mantra "Dreams Unwind", borrowed from RHIANNON.
DOORS OPEN 9 PM - 4 AM
ADVANCE TICKETS ON SALE LATE JANUARY
$20 TILL FEBRUARY 15, $25 THEREAFTER
18 AND OVER, 21 TO DRINK

THE JACKIE FACTORY (your producers) will now begin assembling the bill for this year's show, with first priority given to Legends of Stevie Realness - those NOTS Legends who are most beloved by our audience or have made NOTS herstory in some way. We are also passionate about including at least six new performers or ensembles, as we did last year. If you would like to receive instructions on how to apply as a debut performer, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have ALREADY emailed us about performing at NOTS 22, we have your mail on file and you do not need to write again. We will be sending out these instructions beginning this week, and will be reviewing submissions through March 1. We will be notifying all new performer applicants during the first week of March, so you will still have plenty of time to get your outfit together(!)
Our next newsletter will have lots more details, including first confirmed performers, more about the theme, suggested dress and box office information. We wanted to get the date out early so you can begin to make plans, especially all those who travel in from far and wide for The Night.
As we once again begin the journey towards another Night, we are humbled by the tremendous support that you continue to bring to NOTS every year. Special greetings to all of our friends from the Stevie Nicks websites and blogs, message boards including THE LEDGE STEVIE NICKS FORUM and our own ENCHANTED GYPSIES, our Facebook page fans and other online outposts for the Gypsies That Remain. As always we ask you to post this information wherever Chiffonheads gather, and we look forward SO MUCH to sharing this most Magical night of the year with you once again.
And The Love Remains -
