Review – Vitamins For You at the Academy, July 16 2009

when it comes to dancing
there is the thing
of it
the movement
the zing of it
the rhythm
the speed
the need
to undo your
tissue knots
your brain nots
your
muscular
no’s
making it all yes,yes,Yes!
(down to) your toes
need to feel
it
the zing
the sing song bling
the long,
ing to groove
to move

to express
your sexiness
your sensualness

this is about your
fuck,ability
sharply
bluntly

Vitamins For You
gave us
the dancers
55 minutes of hyper
overdriving sexual
freedom
on the dance floor
to move hips
feet
heads shoulders
and touch
each other
in the longing places
the wet and hard places
knowing grinning faces

dancers
like sexual beings
unleashed
for the freedom
of sensuality

there is sexual anarchy
on the dance floor

men and women
sweating and enjoying
the groove

Vitamins For You
come out in masks

and i
‘m reminded
this is theater
this is performance
this is the dance

between
audience and musicians

we’re lost
like i was lost
enthralled
by The

Secret Love Life of Ophelia

earlier in the day
Hyper Sexual Theater

(“Ophelia! I love that song
by The Band,” says the guy
working the burger and fries
truck at the Fringe)

there are masks
in every performance
there are sexy dances
in every
line of Shakespeare
if you have the patience
and the wit
to draw
your sharpened staff
from the well,oiled,quiver
this is when we come
together
hither, my love
with speed
and passion
and power
this is our time now
youngsters,
to bloom
to flower
bees and birds
come and take
our
seed
spilling it
thrilling it
every,any,where

and when you see the sexy
the raunchy
the bits
for the public
for the mass
you’ll dine on the sexiest
meal you’ll ever
taste
Shakespeare
open your senses
to The Fringe,

the language
the movement
the longing
love letters
from the underworld

so, if you’re a tour spieler
and a free/wheeler

go see Vitamins For You
and then another form
of alive theater
The Secret Love Life of
Ophelia, it’s on The Fringe

Weatherman Underground
delivered
and another Torrid
dance set
that had me imprinting
my sweat
on the black
wood floor stage

it’s art
of the dance
sweat
finger,painting
patterns of Love
(Weatherman Underground)

only one song was sloppy
and even Bobby
felt it
(Crash and Burn,
i usually love this song)
after the set
when we talked
about relationships
love lost
hearts
taken at a such a raw and dear cost

i’m lost
i’m lost

and i have found
a community
of dancers
and musicians
and audience

to make me burst
with the love
only this insanity
can hurl
me
into

it’s about
music and dance and theater
performance

Johnny Blackwood and The Housewives
are young
18, 19 year olds
they lack Power
they lack Performance
they have Songs,
though. melodies.
and a singer who knows
how to communicate
the melody, he speaks
to your heart,
they have believers
friends, family, fans
who came out to the WECC.

Weatherman Underground
have it all
they’re older
they are intense
and they are fragile
they’re human
they have songs and words
and desire
the fire to make it
and smash your soul
to Crash and Burn you

spurn you

make you

bleed
sweat.

Take
your Vitamins
(they’re good) For You,

and dance

and make with your sex
as you desire

it’s your special innermost fire.
