Welcome to my salute to NOTS 15 held at the Knitting Factory in lower Manhattan on May 6, 2005.
Left, hubby John and me (CatAnna) on our way to the show. We got there early... 9:30?...
met up with Stevie Nicks Chain mailing list buddies Brian, Mariel & her friend Matt and
hung out in the main room chatting and singing and dancing along with Stevie songs with the Red Rocks video on
a big screen. By 10:30 the place was packed, the performances started and it was pretty much non-stop Stevieness til 4am or so. The 2 stages overflowed with talent;
to say who was "the best" is impossible but Teri aka Gypsy Wild's "I Can't Wait" totally blew me
away, Billy O brought happy tears to my eyes in the piano lounge (again!) and Brooke's debut performance in the
first set was beautiful. Unfortunately we had to leave before 2am so we missed
a lot including
who I heard danced around the stage with Chi Chi and Russell Crow (the bird, not the actor ;-)
on her head in the 3rd set :-) If anyone has any photos - of the performers,
yourself, your friends or just the crowd in general,
email me. I'd looooove to see them!

I bought much of my costume online.
