Make a reservation and the cover charge is only $10! For more details, visit joannaparson.com.

In case you missed her performance, which incorporated the names of 20 indie soaps, here it is (lyrics below).



"It Just Takes Love"

It just takes love
in 5 minute bytes
yeah, it takes love
and carnal appetites
it takes love
and a couple hours free
and it takes plastic
surgery.

It takes a camera
and a couple of your friends
and inspiration.
and a lighting store than lends.
And though it’s cold
and a frosty winter, yet
it only takes the internet.

Now, are you ready? I'm going to name all of the nominees for the 1st Annual Fan's Choice Indie Soap Award while telling a poignant tale with touching characters and cutting edge sex and gender roles. In rhyme.

So, a girl named Anacostia
goes to Gotham Bar and Grill
to find a Table of Choices
Will she have the steak? She will!

And As the Corn Grows cold she levels
some Confessions on her friend
that soon her High Rise
days will end.

Cuz she's headed off to Venice!
California, not canals.
She'll be hanging: The New Twenties
are for Buppies and their pals.

She's a Chick with beach Compulsions
and a Chevy Lumina.
She eats spicy foods, and often
she says "Pass the cumin. Aaah.

In my Empire I've a restaurant
that'll be my very own.
Isn't Anyone But Me
and now I'm here Seeking Simone.

I am On the Edge of Happiness,
Simone will be my wife.
She makes such delicious flatbread
learned from her Habesha Life.

In the Diary of her Single Mom
she found the recipe
We are Kindred spirits, and I'm sure
Simone will come with me.

We will live and love and laugh and know
the food will be quite hearty.
And we'll hit on all the ladies
at the Palisades Pool Party.

Yeah, we'll live and love and laugh and know
the food will be quite hearty.
And we'll kiss on all the ladies
at the Palisades Pool Party.

Cuz it takes love
in five minute bytes
yeah it takes love
and carnal appetites
it takes love
and a couple hours free
and it takes plastic surgery.
