Apparently, Gay City Arts Is Having A Cool Mary Lambert Show…Who Knew?

Mary-Lambert-album_612x380_0

You probably don’t know this, but Gay City Arts is the cool arts program at Gay City Health Project, aka “Seattle’s Current LGBTQ Center”. In addition to their monthly art shows, they also are doing fantastic theater/dance/performing arts events in their terrific community meeting space, Calamus Auditorium. We’ve focused on many of their events in recent years. We love to support Gay City Arts.

Apparently, they’re also doing a super great fundraiser called LUSH US for Gay City Arts on Saturday, February 6th at a much bigger venue: Town Hall and they have a big, famous guest star, the fantabulous hometown singer/songwriter, MARY LAMBERT as one of the artists showcased. Though, oddly, we haven’t seen any P.R. on this event or anyone promoting it despite the fact it’s just a couple weeks away. It sounds like a winning event for a good cause. And, with some other great performers involved:
