Dan's Suggest will be popping up on Slog the day after tomorrow, but by then it might be too late. So here it is now:

Storm Large (MUSIC/THEATER)
Order your ticket before you read this. Trust me. Call 838-4333 right now and get a ticket right now. Got it? Okay, now here's what you're going to be seeing tonight: Portland lounge-rocker/icon/sex-bomb Storm Large is coming to Seattle for a one-night-only performance at the Triple Door. Storm will be singing selections from her hit solo show, Crazy Enough, which played to sold-out houses in Portland for five months last year, backed by the kick-ass band from the show. You don't wanna miss your chance to see Storm perform "My Vagina Is Eight Miles Wide" live onstage. Which you won't, of course, because you already ordered your ticket—right? (Triple Door, 216 Union St, 838-4333. 7:30 pm, $17 adv/$20 DOS, all ages.) DAN SAVAGE

She's really great. Check out another song of hers "8 Miles Wide". Some of the lyrics may not be safe for work (depending upon your workplace). www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5U-YT-mRmI

If it's abuse you're after, you've come to the right place. Seriously, though, she's definitely a woman.

I much prefer the studio version, Gus. But, then coarse language is my second language and I'm a fluent speaker.

Thanks, Kim! The studio is much more effective, no? Bwaha! I just saw a clip of her bit on Ellen where she said she's been six foot since age 13.

rewind:

Shoot! It should say that the NBC version is the clean version, hence no coarse language. The studio has the coarse language.

Her Gus,

The none NBC version has coarse language

Here is the studio version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oz02IIF20…

She's a tall woman over 6 feet.

Thanks for the YouTube nudge, 5280. Holy fuck, she's amazing. Pipes, ironic remove.

No, she's actually Meatloaf in drag. (There's a bunch of her stuff on YouTube, check it out for yourself.)

She was the only good thing about Rock Star: INXS many years ago - gorgeous rock voice!

I enjoyed seeing her last year. I even have a "Vigantic" shirt, that gets me a lot of raised eyebrows when I wear it for running, from the show. It takes a second but most people get that it's a reference to Storm Large.

I was trying to figure out why she looked so familiar and remembered she was one of the (top 10?) finalists on that weird tv show looking to replace Michael Hutchence of Inxs. She was my favorite.
