On today’s very special episode of Songmess we have an exciting podcasting crossover with our hilarious siblings from The Shade Parade. Ronie / Viki Villainess and Marti / Ari Kiki join us today for a messy, shady, campy episode of legendary pop hits and salacious chisme. Many of the skills Richard has brought into the music business were first honed in the surreal and riveting world of NYC nightlife, where Ronie and Marti have been mainstays for close to a decade. Richard first met Viki Villainess and Ari Kiki, phenomenal NYC drag queens, at a now-defunct weekly party named our Lady of Saliva where punk looks and acid humor coalesced into a long lasting friendship. Today’s episode is all about The Shade Parade, how the friendship between Ronie and Marti came to be, eventually evolving into a podcast, as well as GRAPHIC stories form their time in drag, fashion, comedy and surviving the daily NYC blitz. The playlist is comprised of some of their favorite songs to perform and high energy jams that will have you doing more cart wheels and shablams than a Drag Race contestant about to get the chop. Featured Artists: Sylvester, Gloria Estefan, Cardi B, Salt N Peppa, Jennifer Lopez, La Lupe, Selena and Lizzo.
