Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend.

Tempe is hosting a movie night for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. One Kitty Gone, an amazing local band will be playing during the night. The night is asking for people to come dressed in their 50's finery! I know exactly what I will be wearing. My silver wiggle dress... which I have named, The Marilyn. Oddly enough, I found out about this event from costumers of Hollywood Regency. I am hoping that we can get a group together for the fun evening. So if you iare in the metro Phoenix area or near by (HINT HINT Hamilton Honey) come on out for the night! Seating and Parkin are limited so lets get this figured out!!!

Here is the info from the night:

On April 24th, venture back into the 1950's with a classic event featuring the live music of local band One Kitty Gone, in "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend". This home grown band is inspired by the 40's and 50's, studio era Hollywood and pinup girl glamour. The bands influences come from artists such as Gil Elvgren, Andrews Sisters, Cab Calloway, Peggy Lee, Vicki Carr, The Ventures, The Big Bopper, Glen Miller, Chuck Berry, Vaudville, Burlesque, Julie Andrews, and Shangri Las. The band also features 7 different musical instruments used in the performance.

In addition you will get the chance to sit down and experience the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" staring Marilyn Monroe, which really captures the theme of the show. This will sure to be an evening to travel back to 50's with music, film and traditional cocktail gatherings. In attendance will be the local Artists of AZCulture.

Come as you are or dressed to fit the era!
