HERE & THERE
It has been an exhausting week so far. It seems that every time I open my e-mail another 10 press releases fall out! I tried very hard today to get all the items and articles received for events up to the 20th of October up and running on the website and included in this newsletter - but I could only get to the 15th and one or two for the 16th. There are 18 more items to post in order to catch up just to the 20th! Who says that cabaret is on the wane?

Meantime the weather forecasts call for a really warm weekend with temperatures into the upper 80s. Last week had me digging out my sweaters and jackets, this week I am back to short sleeves. I vote for clearly defined seasons.


CORRECTION (OR ACTUALLY A CANCELLATION) - Last issue we related a note from Mr. Ruby Rims about the return of TEDDYCARE, with events planned for December at the JUDSON MEMORIAL CHURCH in the Village. Turns out the church had their December schedule in a state of confusion and notified Ruby that the dates were no longer available. So no TEDDYCARE again this year - understandably Ruby is quite disappointed and discouraged by this turn of events.


By the way, you have one more chance to catch Aaron's show at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440 - http://www.metropolitanroom.com/ ) this Sunday October 7th at 7:00 pm. His new show is called "Dreamscape" and is an amazing new style for Aaron. He is backed by an terrific band led by Erik James, with backup singers and a guest appearance by Carolyn Eufrasio of Shimmerplanet. The show is non-stop excitement from beginning to end, with some new songs not usually heard in cabaret plus some new looks at old standards. This is a definite "go see" - just two performances is not enough for such a great show and I hope it gets several more performances in the months to come.


Be sure to check out the latest new feature on the website - CABARET DIARY (click on the button so marked at the top of every page). This is a complete collection of all cabaret event items published in these newsletters in date order. So you can see at a glance what is going on where each day of the week (at least if I heard about the event). There are links to longer articles about the events where available. As a week ends, the items of that week are lopped off the top, and new items continue to be added as we find out about them.


This weekend we are planning a major overhaul of the CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE WEB BLOG which really has been a neglected orphan lately. All the old items will be deleted, and we plan on a fresh new look and a new beginning. The current (or actually past system, since nothing has been posted for some time) was entirely too much work, so I have a new design and a new format - stay tuned.


The newsletters have been undergoing a design/format change as well (I am sure you noticed) and now on Monday the 8th, we will be changing the layout in an attempt to make the issues a little shorter and eliminate duplication of news items. From now on the MONDAY issue will look a little more like the MIDWEEK issue since we will be eliminating the special SPONSOR'S section. Instead of all the banner and side-bar advertisers listed near the top of the issue, the items advertised will be distributed in date order. But now the news items for advertisers will be included in EVERY issue - MONDAY & MIDWEEK, rather than just in the MONDAY issue.


We surpassed the 360 mark and are still going for 400 members by Columbus Day (October 8th) just 4 days away and 40 members to signup. If you have hesitated to join in the past, follow the lead of Craig Coursey and join us this year. A basic SILVER membership is a mere $20 and if you enjoy these newsletters (since you have read this far I assume you do), why not show your appreciation and support by joining today? Just click on the JOIN HERE button at the top of every page of the website for details - you can even join instantly using a credit card and PayPal. Please remember, all checks should be made out simply to STU HAMSTRA and mailed to 75-22 37th Avenue #35 - Jackson Heights, NY 11372. Hey, we're only talking $20 here - yet it would mean a lot more to me, I assure you.


I'm still waiting for the next installment of John Hoglund's AFTER DARK column, but in the meantime, I want to clarify one thing: John is a free-lance writer and I do not - and actually should not - tell him who or what to write about. In fact, except for an occasional typo I might find, I don't change a word of what he sends me. So, if you want to invite John to your show or to listen to your CD, you need to contact him. Realize also that right now he is "up to his ears" in two or three special projects that demand a lot of his time and attention - hopefully in a month or so there will be less demand on his time and energy. By the way, sponsorship of the AFTER DARK section will be available after October 14th - your SUPER-SIDEBAR ad will appear on all pages of the AFTER DARK section plus on the CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE home page - and displayed every time, not at random. The AFTER DARK section is the most popular and most read section of the website after the MESSAGE BOARD.


Do I dare "go for four" tonight? Here's my datebook entries for today: 6:00 pm at DON'T TELL MAMA for Seth Rudetsky's BROADWAY CHATTERBOX - guest is Brian Stokes Mitchell. 7:00 pm a few blocks away at THE LAURIE BEECHMAN for Alice Frazier's "Broadway Without Boundaries" show. Then at 8:15 pm, Jacob Coronado's show at David Pellegrene's "No Cover Cabaret" at UNCLE CHARLIE'S (I expect I will be late) and finally at 10:00 pm, Barbara Brussell's highly recommended new show "Out Of The Mouths of Babes" show at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM. Fortunately Barb's show (which is the talk of the town) plays every Thursday through November 1st - if I fall behind schedule I can catch her show next week and check out Ray Jessel's show at DON'T TELL MAMA at 11:00 pm instead. Paramedics, please stand by.


Now that we are fast approaching the 400 member mark, more performers should consider offering discounts to their shows for CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE members. Not only do you get a free listing on the DISCOUNTS page on the website - the third most popular section after the MESSAGE BOARD and the AFTER DARK sections, and not only do you have your show promoted in every MIDWEEK issue of the newsletter, but you also now have chance to snag Craig "always looking for a bargain" Coursey in your audience! (Attention cabaret wait staff: he's a big tipper (or is it "tippler"?) so treat him well.


Note to piano bar lovers - do not - DO NOT - ask Bobby Peaco to play Billy Joel's "Piano Man." Some drunk did so the other night at DON'T TELL MAMA and was soon escorted from the bar. He don't know it - he don't play it. Be warned.


Well, here I am, sitting at the computer, finishing off the newsletter and eating cold left-over Mexican food from dinner last night - unshaven and still in my PJs. I am so happy I don't have a web cam here - and believe me, you should be happy you don't have to see this as well! Its time to go.

Big thanks to the folks that joined and bought banners this week - we're in that period between paying the rent and awaiting the check from Social Security, and every penny is appreciated. There are 40 folks out there that can really make my weekend by joining as members - I am counting on you!

See you all on Monday!


NOW FOR SOME NEWS ABOUT CABARET SHOWS AND STUFF
In an effort to cut down on "repeated" events, except for announcements of programs offered by cabaret membership organizations, and shows where guests change regularly, cabaret news items will usually appear just once in the newsletter in abbreviated form, in chronological order where possible, and linked to a full article on the CABARET NEWS page of the appropriate location on the website.

REMINDER REGARDING CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE DISCOUNTS
To be eligible for a listing on the MEMBER DEALS page you must send in your flier, press release and/or other promotional materials clearly showing the discount offer. That information will be used as the basis for the MEMBER DEALS page notice, as well as for the newsletter listing. Please be sure to check with the venue where you are performing to be sure that these discounts will be honored. Any member who is denied a properly listed CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE discount should notify me at once. I cannot guarantee that the discount will be honored, but I can take steps to contact the parties involved and publish the facts in the newsletter and remove the listing from the MEMBER DEALS page.


ABOUT CABARET NEWS IN THE NEWSLETTER AND ON THE WEBSITE
How do you get an item posted in the CABARET NEWS section of the CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE website and in the newsletter? It is really quite simple.

Just e-mail me a press release of at least four or five paragraphs, giving the complete information on your show, CD release or other cabaret related event. Include photos in jpg or gif format if available. Please send me complete information - and do not merely e-mail me a copy of your flier or a reference to a website. By the way, I usually trim quotes from reviews from the press releases I receive before using the item on my website or in the newsletter, so don't count them when putting together the four or more paragraphs. If you don't have a press release, just click here: http://www.svhamstra.com/PressRelease1.shtml and fill out the information as completely as possible - or use the items asked for as a guide to the information I need.

Just send in your press release or listings request in simple txt format if possible (the format I write these issues in and use for the website), and send any photos as attachments, not imbedded within the e-mail. And, please, please don't send, instead of a press release, one of those e-mails with all those annoying html links (with multi-columns, embedded photos, distracting backgrounds, etc.) Do not send simply a .jpg of your post card. Do not send us one of those "e-vite" things that require us to "click to open" and lead to a web page somewhere. I never open them! The more information the better - it is easier for me to trim the release than to hunt and google websites for more information.

We usually run articles about 3 weeks before event date if possible so it is wisest to send your release about 4 weeks in advance. Because of the large number of items received, we can only use news of event just once, so we try not to get too far ahead in the news. There are a few exceptions to the "just once" rule:

> If the event is advertised on the website it will be repeated in each MONDAY issue of the newsletter

> If the event offers a discount to members of CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE it will be included in the DISCOUNTS section of each MID-WEEK issue of the newsletter.

> Major benefits where ALL proceeds are given to the charity named will be mentioned in every issue as well as major cabaret events like cabaret festivals and galas.

We also include at least once each week those regular (monthly, weekly, etc.) events with guests who change each performance, like SETH'S BROADWAY CHATTERBOX, BOB EGAN'S MONDAY SHOWCASE and the like.


COLUMBUS DAY INFORMATION FOR MONDAY OCTOBER 8th
Monday, October 8th (the second Monday in October) is celebrated in the USA as Columbus Day. Manhattan will be especially busy traffic-wise because of the annual parade so be advised to use mass transit if at all possible. This particular holiday usually does not disrupt live entertainment events, but phone ahead just to be sure.


IT'S TIME TO GO
Near the top of this newsletter I promised that you would read things in this issue you will not find published anywhere else. Did I keep my promise?


I realize that there is probably far more information here than you might be able to digest in one reading, but please keep in mind that for the performers mentioned, CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE is one of the few publications that spread the word about their shows and performances. To them, that item about their show is most important, and the fact that every issue published is also posted on my website means another place where they can be found by fans and search engines (Google, etc.) alike.

SPECIAL NOTE: To the creep that keeps posting disgusting items on the MESSAGE BOARD - you tipped your hand and now I know who you are - and believe me, you need help (something I've known all along)! Your messages will never be displayed, just deleted. Quit wasting your time and my time, get back on your medication and get a life! Keep it up and I'll tell the world all about you (but most of them already know).


And that is just about the way it was. Now for a few TUMS and a good long nap - I have a lot to do tonight!
