If there’s one thing I love, it’s making awesome behind-the-scenes videos of all the fun stuff we do in XELLE to let everyone know what a crazy time we have doing what we do. I put this behind the scenes video together after the Queen video came out, and it’s got some awesome funny moments. Check it out!
Wow, I can’t believe it, but time passes so fast and I’ve been so busy with XELLE stuff that I haven’t been able to stop and tell you about everything that’s been going on for two and a half weeks! Here are some awesome videos that will get you up to speed on what’s been going on with us:
Our song, Party Girl, played on MTV!
Check our the first single from XELLE, Party Girl! What do you think??
Wow, sorry for the lag in updates! Stuff with XELLE has been craaaazy! I finally understand what people mean when they say they have no time for a boyfriend, because now I really feel that way myself! I am sooooo busy working on XELLE stuff all the time, as are all of the girls.
Last night we did our first XELLE “blitzkrieg,” in which we hit 5 clubs in one night to perform our first single, Party Girl, and get the DJs to play it. We performed at Therapy, Barracuda, Club 57, Rush and The Cock. It was exhausting but SO much fun! People loved our performance and I am just so glad to be back on stage I can’t even tell you. I was feeling almost depressed about the fact that I hadn’t been on stage for real since our October performance at the Glammys, so it was great to get back into my element. Performing always reminds me that doing this is my destiny and the only way I can be truly happy.
We also had a huge entourage with us all night, so it felt really awesome and professional and chaotically fun. We had a photographer, videographer, Mimi’s manager, our producer, our designer, our publicist and a friend of ours who also took photos and videos the whole time. I’ll be editing some of that footage into webisodes for us to share on our YouTube channel very soon!
The whole night was just an avalanche of awesome falling on our heads from start to finish, so I’ll try to sum it up in random fun moments I remember:
-Getting interviewed by Keith Edwards for Fab.com
-Getting filmed as we drove around stuffed into little cars with very big outfits, ran down streets with no coats on in 25 degree weather, performed on stages and bars, met fans, and generally caused a scene
-Having the legendary Acid Betty introduce us on the balcony of Club 57
-Performing at Club 57 with hundreds and hundreds of people watching all around us
-Running into my friends Jay DiFeo and Lucas Mirvois at the Club 57 performance and seeing how excited they were about the performance
-The way the crowd went WILD for us at Rush and was singing along with us by the second chorus
-Deciding to get up on the bar at The Cock and perform last minute
-Feeling like we have arrived and this is all real and it’s only going to get bigger, better and crazier!
Watch for more VERY EXCITING news very soon!!
Wow, time has flown by without an update. Sorry about that! Things have been busy and quite exciting. Everything is chugging along with XELLE. We are in the process of choosing a music video director and planning our first music video for our first single, Party Girl, and we’re releasing Party Girl on 1.1.11, so that will be exciting. We’ve finished our EPK (Electronic Press Kit) so now we can shop ourselves to industry connections and hopefully gain some interest and support. Our EPK has been blowing people away, and our song preview in our Kickstarter video has been getting people really excited.
It’s been fun and educational working with this group and having advice from our producer about exactly how to go about things properly. I’m learning a lot and getting excited about what could lie in our near future. Mimi, our fabulous drag queen group member, will be appearing in this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race starting in January, so it will be interesting to see if her new found fame will be able to help us finagle some out of town show dates. It’s funny, we’re aiming to be the next huge pop group, but for now we are just like any other indie band, working on a shoestring budget, and trying to pull all the tricks and favors we can to get ahead. Help us out if you can, here!
