♥ QUIRKY EVENTS for JUNE 2018! - Slowdances! ♥


Montreal Fringe Slowdance!

RSVP HERE! https://www.facebook.com/events/1672610516121365/

❤❤❤ You are cordially invited to Montreal Fringe SLOWDANCE! ❤❤❤

With a lending library of designated dancers for all you wallflowers, and a dancecard-booklet to set up dances in advance (should you choose to), Montreal Slowdance has all slow songs, all night long! (Except for the occasional intermission when we play the fastest songs we can find!)

It's high school with a happy ending. Come and experience why slow is beautiful, and why love is not ironic.

PS. Fabulous and inspired attire, while desired, is not required. But it would be AWESOME and HAWT. As this is our Fringe Edition, you are invited to get down and dress up or go wild with your apparel!

Mainline Theatre
3997 Blvd. St-Laurent

(Just south of Duluth on the East side of the street)

Friday, June 1st, 2018
Doors at 9:30, Dance promptly from 10 PM - 3 AM.
$10 (+$2 Fringe service charge) admission includes your Dancecard-booklet!



Regretfully, the Mainline Theatre is not wheelchair-accessible. There is a single step through a glass door into the stairwell, and then there are 12 steps from there up to the theatre floor. There are 3 single-stall gender-neutral bathrooms on the premises, but none accomodate wheelchair-users.

18+ (as alcohol will be available for purchase)


We are always looking for designated dancers for our evenings. If you are outgoing, warm, and willing to undertake the very serious duty and responsibility of inviting wallflowers out onto the dancefloor - if in fact, such a prospect gives you great joy - then please contact the organizers at inconsolablecat@hotmail.com.

RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/593255821007605/

The NAUGHTY BITS BOOK CLUB is a reading event that hopes to re-create that early, furtive feeling of first reading something illicit. When you were too young to have actually done anything, but were VERY INTERESTED in certain sexy passages of certain books.

Maybe you read them over and over again with one hand. Maybe those pages grew wrinkled. Over 90 minutes, 5 readers will read - sight unseen - hilarious and titillating sexcerpts from famous literary works. Maybe one of the sexcerpts will be the first naughty bit YOU ever encountered.

We are very proud to be part of Montreal's Blue Metropolis Literary Festival this year! And our readers will be plucked from their stellar lineup of internationaly-acclaimed authors!


Saturday, April 28, 2018
Hotel 10 - in the Salle Godin
(Hotel 10 is located at the corner of Sherbrooke & St-Laurent Blvd)

RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/168536390436287/

Yes, for Nuit Blanche Montreal this year I have teamed up with the CCA (Canadian Center for Architecture) to do a very weird event where we take excerpts from a variety of famous televised speeches and offer them up for people to read aloud to a crowd! It will be a first come, first served sort of situation, like actual karaoke. We go starting from 10 PM to probably 1 or 2 AM depending on demand.







Montreal Strip Spelling Bee! - Insane Gown Posse Edition -- MARCH 9, 2018

RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/166386667478606/

WARNING: There may be nudity in this show.

The game is played a lot like strip poker, but it's a spelling bee, and it's played in front of a live audience of hooters, hollerers and hecklers who want to see some smart and sexy skin!

As this is our Insane Gown Posse edition, we encourage contestants and audience members to wear gowns. Any contestant who comes in costume, whether half-assed or high-end, will be looked upon more favourably by the judges.

We are also taking contestant sign-ups in advance! But we are limiting early sign-ups to HALF of the allotted ten spellers. Email inconsolablecat@hotmail.com with GOWNBEE in the subject line if you are i
nterested in signing up early!
......


Saturday, March 9, 2018
Mainline Theatre
3997 Blvd. St-Laurent
(Just south of Duluth - look for the sign with flames painted on it!)

Contestant sign-up at 8:30 PM sharp!
Bee from 9 to midnight
$10 at the door.
(Contestants do not pay cover and get a free drink!)

Please note that we must cap our number of strip-spellers at 10 to ensure an expedient and entertaining evening.

Regretfully, The Mainline is not wheelchair-accessible, as it is up a steep flight of 14 stairs.

We don't know what will happen & we do them to find out. The ultimate goal of everything is for folks to forge new friendships & to make life a little less lonely & manifestly more lovely. LESS LONELY! MORE LOVELY! Take a chance on a Chat Perdu event!

♥ QUIRKY EVENTS for DECEMBER! - Slowdances, Strip Spelling Bees! ♥

Hello Lovelies!

So this is the time of year that I like to get out my Vitamin D. And no, D doesn't stand for anything except vitamin D. (Sorry, pervs.) I also have a therapy lamp that my friend Amy gave me years ago. But the truth is, I kind of like winter. I find it bracing and invigorating. I am astonished that the world can get that cold, and during a blizzard sometimes I will step outside, wide-eyed and just marvel at all the drifts blocking doors and engulfing cars. And of course, I love going from the frigid outside into my cozy inside.

But I have to constantly fight against the impulse just to stay inside all the time. Which is why I'm often surprised to see all of you at my events. I don't know if any of you have ever watched Wall-E, but I kind of think that the endgame for all humans is how the humans are on that giant ark. Where we all have these self-enclosed mobility hovercrafts, and everything we really need is on the screen in front of us. I'm not saying that it's very healthy, but it's very human.

So this is me, thanking you in advance for actually leaving your houses and coming out to my weird events.

I have several this month. I am launching my new book, You Are Alice in Wonderland's Mum! in both Montreal and Toronto.  Or you could just order it direct from my publisher here!

I also have a Winter Formal edition of Toronto Queer Slowdance. And I am reprising my annual Montreal Christmas Caroloke Event where you come and sing karaoke in a crowd and we actually record it all and cut an album. Every year it gets more hilarious and raucous.

And of course I have my list of Other Quirky Events that you might like, further down in this email blast that are also filled with amazing things.

So I'm raising a glass to you, brave people who leave houses. You make it so much easier for me to leave mine and to meet you all.

Here's to a more hopeful, more thoughtful, and less fraught 2018.

sherwin.

MONTREAL CHRISTMAS CAROLOKE SINGALONG 2017 - DEC 12, 2017
RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/1942354832684646/

So, as some of you know, every year I like to record a drunken karaoke album of myself singing Christmas carols. Then I burn a CD, come up with a silly cover, and then hand them out to friends and family as gifts because it is a riot and a hoot.

Then a couple years back, I got tired of singing by myself, and decided to create an event where we could all sing together! And you came out! And we recorded a whole album in one night and I sent everyone a link to download the enormous album we sang into being.

AND THIS YEAR WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN!

On the night of December 12th, come sing it loud, proud, and in a crowd as we cut an album for 2017.

For those of you who are coming for the first time, it will be a cro
wd karaoke sort of situation where we play the music and project the lyrics and everyone sings drunkenly together. The whole thing will be recorded, and I will take the audio home and cut tracks and make up some cover art and then everyone will get a download link they can distribute to family and friends. We can cut a Christmas album in three hours of drunk, raucous singing!

And if you're curious what the whole thing sounds like, here is just one of the tracks we recorded a year ago: https://soundcloud.com/inconsolablecat/029-oholynight
