In 2021, his livestream solo musical, “Weaux Is Me Live”, told the epic coming of age story behind the album, dazzling audiences around the world with an innovative combination of live music, first-person storytelling, rainbow lights, and glitter tears. Around the city, he has performed at Young Ethel’s, My Gallery NYC, Prohibition Bar, and the Broadway Comedy Club as part of Eight Is Never Enough Improv.

Weaux first began his artistic journey as an actor, graduating with his BA in Theatre Performance at Fordham University in New York City. His love for acting still shines through in his dramatic vocals and performance style.

Annie Nirschel of Sanderling is a 5 foot tall, mild mannered Sofar Sounds artist who once flew for 16 hours roundtrip to play her 25 minute set at a coffee shop in Idaho for Sofar Boise. This was early 2020.

And then, well, you know…

In lockdown, she and her real life future husband, singer-pianist Russ Stone from Austin, TX, quickly ran out of things to talk about and formed a convoluted, theatrical indie pop duo called Sanderling. They sing straight from the soul about existential angst, 90 Day Fiancé, and their diabetic cat Sully.

Originally, the two met at an open mic in Brooklyn 100 years ago and ended up playing together in Annie’s 5 piece band “Union Street” at some of the coolest New York venues like The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall. When the pandemic started, the two fled to Austin and formed Sanderling in Russ’s parents’ house. They livestreamed religiously, released their first single, (“Marigolds”), and are now working on their EP.

When they’re not playing music, they’re making vegan tacos and watching reality TV.

Michele Lim is a feel good stand up comedian originally from Sydney, Australia. After the past year, she now (mostly) knows the difference between uptown and downtown like a real New Yorker. Michele’s performed stand up for over 10 years, in Australia, Taiwan and San Francisco. She’s had two sold out seasons at the Sydney Comedy Festival, a sold out season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and sold out various Fringe Festivals seasons around Australia.

Her comedy style is observational, pretty clean and a little bit quirky often featuring a rap parody or two. She prides herself in being a feel good comedian, bringing people together through laughter instead of pointing out differences and causing divisions.

This is Brandon Peterson (he/him) (aka Scorpio(they/them))’s debut to the scene of drag. He has always been fascinated by androgyny and this performance is a personification of the inner femininity he has felt his entire life but concealed until now. This story is a message to his previous mentor in middle school who rejected him for being gay. The song choice, “Cure for Me” by AURORA captures the previous hurt but also the present freedom he feels when he has the opportunity to release that feminine side from inside. His/their goal is to spread kindness and love and acceptance wherever this journey may take him/them. Thank you for attending and he/they hope you enjoy the show!

Alice Blair is by day an innocent little healthcare worker, by night…. a singer, actress, dancer, burlesque performer, sword fighter, archer, and apothecary. She has an old soul and a childish heart. She loves strange friends and friendly strangers.
