JESSICA DELFINO EXCITING NEWS!
Greetings, Earthlings. I am writing with good news and bad news.
The good news is, I have quit working on Jessica's Chest of Treasures to focus full time on finishing my shows, "More Dirty Folk Rock" and "I Wanna Be Famous" which will show across the UK this July and August. The bad news is that all of the past episodes have been removed from Youtube by a force that was out of my hands, so those episodes are now lost, which makes them even more precious.
Deleted from Youtube again! When will "the man" learn that ya can't keep Delfino down? Hopefully never, as it just makes me work harder and try harder, and get more of a "bad gal" reputation. I try to reject it, but it just keeps chasing me down!
ABOUT MY NEW SHOWS:
"More Dirty Folk Rock" is basically like "Dirty Folk Rock", but will feature some older gems and some new hits, as well as my amazing new instrument, the Q-chord! It is like a haunted circular piano from an old 70s television show about the future. I love it and can't wait to regale Europe with it.
"I Wanna Be Famous" is about my brushes with near fame. As one writer put it:
"In “I Wanna Be Famous”, Delfino discusses “un-fame”, an interesting nook of celebrity she finds herself subject to. Known by a vast and growing number of web folk and even considered a household name to many people, Delfino finds herself rubbing elbows with A-listers, yet feeling just one little break away from true success."
That show will feature some old hits, some new songs and jokes and also stories and monologues, using my hand-drawn comic book style stories to illustrate some of my favorite "fame-like" ordeals, such as getting kicked out of Canada. I'm glad to have the opportunity to draw in my shows, I like drawing and wish I had markers for fingers. I don't get to do it as much as I'd like to any more.
The bad news is that I'm ONLY doing 3 shows this week! ha ha!!!
