“Once Upon a Time” Benefit Variety Show

NUG Magazine will be hanging out on November 3rd at Spin Nightclub (2028 Hancock St.) to show our support for two catalyst arts service organizations in town – Actors Alliance of San Diego and contACT Arts. The benefit variety show is called “Once Upon A Time” and will feature electronic music, contemporary dance, musical theatre, sassy burlesque, comedy, opera, bollywood, drag, dubstep, and more!

Lindsley Allen (OG Pussy Cat Dolls) will be showing off her new group, Cherry Boom Boom, and Broadway Artist Roxane Carrasco (Velma Kelly in Chicago) is the recently announced emcee. Mike Snow, who performed at the Halloweed gathering, will also be featured, along with electronic pioneers, DJ Lost Robot, and OMFG Zombies.

“This variety show really kills A LOT of birds with just a few stones,” said Marc Emmelmann, NUG Magazine’s very own performing arts contributor. He elaborated, “Actors Alliance has wanted to do something like this for a very long time, and the introduction between contACT Arts and Actors Alliance was love at first – that is, they saw the reflection of each other’s values and responded pro-actively to that admiration. This show is a way for performing arts to be presented in an unconventional venue. It’s an opportunity for emergent artists to perform with high profile talent, its cross pollinating creative types, and their admirers. We want to grow the demand for performing arts too – a unique show such as this is our conscientious intention.  The show is locked and loaded – come experience a magical night at Spin Nightclub this November 3rd.”

The slate of local talent will each be given 10 minutes to show off their work.  Suggested arrival time is 7:30pm and free parking is ample.
