Some loud-mouthed bitch who has nothing to say but says it anyway. After her virulent attacks on the GLBT community several days ago, most of her subsequent concerts were cancelled. I'll admit I'd never heard of her prior to that story, but I think she thinks she's hot shit. And because a small group of self-appointed gay leader/activists made a big deal about her, she is suddenly in the news. Her fifteen minutes is actually running out somewhere during this last sentence.

"Moe's Alley" was at one time the longest continuously operating gay dance bar in Santa Cruz County, "Mona's". Appearing in a few feature films, like the crappy Brooke Shields, "Tilt", the beer and wine establishment closed due to competition and mismanagement in the late disco period, essentially squeezed out by a beer-wine disco and two hard-liquor gay discotheques, all of which have long since disappeared; one going hetero.

It's immediate resurrection as a jazz club with a juke-joint flavor, "Moe's Alley" has been gay-run and friendly ever since. Despite it's small size, it is a favorite venue for touring jazz groups and other artists.

"Moe's" would have definitely NOT allowed her crap any mic time after her stunt in SanFran.

She has scuttled her career through rank stupidity.

She's a well known folk singer. I have two of her albums and loved her sound as well as her songs.

I don't know what really happened, but it's pretty obvious her career is likely over.

I also had never heard of her before this dust up. that must have been something to see, her sitting on the lawn, strumming a guitar, like a demented homeless woman or something.

It sounds as if she had an on stage melt down and now is struggling for damage control, playing herself as the victim in it somehow.

With the internet and INSTANT communication these days, any misspoken words hit the world stage within seconds of utterance. We've seen careers ruined in a day due to a big sloppy mouth.

I understand she has recently been "born again", thus her oddly timed on stage revelations, how nice for her. The fact that she is now denying it, or claiming she was misquoted make her seem even MORE loathsome and cowardly. If she had stuck to her guns, I would have grudgingly supported her, now she looks like a hypocrite and "Luke Laughs at Hypocrites", as my avatar reads.

I hope Jesus belongs to ASCAP and will be sending her on gigs.

Interesting stuff. I know the people in the groups which replaced her. Hey great publicity for Moe's Alley. Never heard of her and probably never will see any more of her either. Good riddance.
