On Saturday night, Olympia’s hippest and most talented put on a variety show at the Capitol Theater. It was billed as a “fashion show” but seeing it included videos, performances, and dances, I’m gonna call it a good old fashioned variety show. It’s stuff like this that makes me happy to live in Olympia. Where else could this have happened? Certainly not in Portland or Brooklyn. I laughed, I cried. There’s truly a lovely, quirky little community in this town.
Greta Jane and aerial performer Carlin
Kimya Dawson and The Olympia Free Choir with Dancing Kids
Bridget Irish and crew perform Night On Disco Mountain!
Viscera choreographed by Mary Russell (a former student!)
Cairo Pythian performs The Dark End… with smoke machine. Best. Performance. Ever.
I love Olympia in the Spring.
