Dina Martina in NYC!

Posted by on September 6 at 11:02 AM

Along with Circus Contraption, there’s another beloved Seattle act making waves in NYC: Miss Dina Martina.

Following a sold-out summer run in Provincetown, Dina made a surprise appearance last Saturday at NYC’s Wigstock festival, where she stepped in as a last-minute replacement for Kate Pierson of the B-52s, and dazzled a crowd of 15,000 with “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.” (A friend of a friend was in the audience, and reported having a near-religious experience.)

Next up is a one-night-only showcase at New York club the Cutting Room on Friday, Sept. 16, leading to a return engagement at the space later this year.

Congrats to Dina and Circus Contraption and the lucky, lucky residents of NYC.
