BLURB

The only thing thicker than cigar smoke here is the musty smell of men’s desire, unabridged, unbridled and unavoidable in a place like this. It’s more than enough on a normal Saturday night at the old Memory Palace, clanking bottles, propositions yelled over the music and crumpled bills illuminated only by neon signs and sequin sheen. Men here drink the air and get plenty drunk off it. Men here forget whatever’s not here once they arrive, a bar stool and a stiff drink, you could be anyone for a couple hours, the only antidote is that frigid parking lot air. Just when you think the intensity can’t rise, when there aren’t any high notes left to hit… she comes out; the only girl really worth coming for. When she steps on stage and that music comes on, we’re all reminded why we come here, why we stay here, and mostly, why we’ll still be here long after we leave. [Ryan Nimmo]
