Since then, I have missed the Dikes of Holland's Selena tribute multiple times! They even played at a Cinco de Mayo party that I slept through (too much de Mayo day drinking). Last night, however, the BF and I went to 29th Street Ballroom and I finally got to see them. My first thought, while the lead singer is not Letty, she is Hispanic, loves Selena as much as we do, and does a pretty damn good job. However, her wardrobe needs some major assistance; her outfit was comparable to an Elvis impersonator wearing sweat pants. That being said, I would love nothing more than to rhinestone bustiers and assist with styling. Regardless, I am their new biggest fan. The next show is for Mitch's birthday at Trailer Space on June 21st and I will be there in rhinestones and hoop earrings!
