THE SOUND OF MAMA D'S ARTS BORDELLO
Sometimes when I have to explain Mama D's Arts Bordello to someone who has never experienced it, they get a little perplexed. This was particularly problematic when I accepted a position at a Business News Network and we had Orientation Day. They asked us to introduce ourselves and provide some personal information.
For whatever reason, I brought up Mama D's Arts Bordello...This did not go over well. You've never seen more uncomfortable, confused-looking assholes in sad suits.
(P.S. I barely lasted 2 months at that dismal place. I did manage to steal a stapler though, which I still use to staple the famed Mama D's Trivia Contest quizzes together.)
But I digress.
The point is, there really isn't anything else like our show, so it's tough to describe. It's a live show that's bawdy, literary, spontaneous, cinematic, weird, funny and loud. You just have to get your ass to the bordello to understand.
But as a public service today, I thought I'd present you with a list of songs that sonically define Mama D's Arts Bordello. Our show is authentic. It's not rehearsed. It's a party. These songs reflect Mama D's joyously rude and raucous vibe.
So take a listen to this set list. Play it loud. Dance in your underpants and you'll see the murky bordello light:
1. Bad Reputation-Joan Jett
2. Rocks Off-The Rolling Stones
3. Orgasm Addict-The Buzzcocks
4. Fuck You-Lily Allen
5. Rebel Rebel-David Bowie
6. Mixed Bizness-Beck
7. How You Like Me Now?-The Heavy
8. All Day And All Of The Night-The Kinks
9. Get It On (Bang A Gong)-T. Rex
10. Gimme Danger-Iggy Pop
