The twenty-second annual NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES - the largest and most beloved STEVIE NICKS fan event in the world - returns to New York City's HIGHLINE BALLROOM on May 11. NOTS 22: DREAMS UNWIND 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.) The 2012 edition also pays 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.
