Doors open 9 P.M. to 4:30 A.M.

PERFORMERS:

Founding performers CHI CHI VALENTI, DEAN JOHNSON and JOEY ARIAS are
already on the bill, along with legends JIMMY JAMES, SHERRY VINE, SWEETIE,
ART L'HOMMEDIEU and many more. We are expecting a record number of
performers and attendees, and therefore have added an early set and are
opening doors 1 1/2 hours early. For the first time we are allowing
multiple renditions (2) of the same Stevie number, but will separate them
in different sets.

TO PERFORM:

If you have performed at any of the previous 7 nights, you can join us
again by e-mailing empress@well.com with your intention to perform, and a
song request (please give first and second choice.)  You will be given a
slot in the second or third set, and of course are welcome to join us for
the battle. that will close the final set. If you don't have e-mail access
please fax us at (212) 929-0987 or call (212) 929-0987, afternoons.  We
will confirm your song and set by late March.

If you have never performed at a previous night, please feel free to e-mail
or fax us at the above numbers, telling us a bit about what you do (sing
live, lip-synch, dramatic reading of Stevie, etc.,) and which song you
would prefer to do. We will accomodate as many of you as possible in the
first set, beginning at 10 PM, and invite you to stay on for the Battle.
Again, we will confirm your song beforehand. All performers must bring
their own music (cassette tape or vinyl preferred, if it's a CD make sure
it's new and clean!)

The only song that is not eligible is "Edge of Seventeen", as that is used
for the Battle.

TICKETS /RESERVATIONS:

Tickets can be purchased at the door only, in cash or travellers checks. To
accomodate fans travelling in, we urge you to e-mail the club at
empress@well.com or call (212) 366-5680 (box 4) to hold reserved tickets
for pickup that night. This method insures that even if you arrive after
the club is sold out, you can still enter without a wait. Leave a contact
phone or e-mail address and we will confirm your reservations.

We will be taking reservations from February 1 on. Reservations will be
held till 1 A.M. only, and then released. Reservations are not necessary,
but we provide them as a convenience.
