Seneca Harper had just finished casting the sculpture he will wear as a headdress at next week’s A Mod Review before coming to the station for “A Juneau Afternoon” yesterday. Excellent Radio was lucky enough to get the low-down on his upcoming performances and hear some of the music that inspired tonight’s super-show Wham! Bam! KaBoom!
You can check out Seneca and his Seattle-based “BOYlesque” trio Mod Carousel this weekend at Rockwell for Wham! Bam! KaBOOM! and in the old-school cabaret show A Mod Revue next week at Perseverance Theatre. Both Performances will feature the international burlesque star Lily Verlaine.
Seneca’s Top Songs to Dance Around in your Underwear to:
Do You Want to Touch Me by Joan Jett
My Hair Looks Fierce by Amanda Lepore
Barbara Streisand – Duck Sauce
Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenbaum
Man with the Golden Arm – Barry Adamson
