Last night I saw pop legend Stacey Q perform at my favorite Hollywood dive bar, Boardner’s. She looked fantastic! Petite and slim with huge sparkling eyes. Everything about her was quintessentially ’80s, right down to her crimped hair and fluorescent green nail polish! She only sang four songs: “Two of Hearts,” “Shy Girl,” and two new ones I didn’t recognize.
She was with her manager Romi Simmons, make-up artist Josef Balandran, and her tall handsome boyfriend! He looked like Elliot Easton, the lead guitarist from The Cars. After the show, Josef introduced me to her and I offered to get us drinks. She ordered a Remy Martin cognac straight up! She was totally sweet and down to earth, even though fans were bombarding her for autographs and photos. She’ll be playing at Club Vertigo, 801 W Temple, this Saturday.
