It's one thing to buy someone's music and declare yourself a fan. It's quite another to worship a musician so wholly and completely, you organize a massive costumed tribute-fest to her and then keep it going for 20 straight years.
Welcome to Jackie Factory NYC’s Night of 1,000 Stevies, the biggest Stevie Nicks fan tribute event on the planet.
The name doesn't lie: If history serves, on Friday, the Highline Ballroom will be crawling with Stevies of every shape and form at NOTS 20: Sisters of the Moon, a night of waist-length blonde tresses, doves (white-winged, naturally), gauzy shawls, and easily the largest congregation of tambourines outside of captivity.
Fans will twirl and shiver to performances by the likes of burlesque mavens Amber Ray and Darlinda Just Darlinda, torch chanteur/performance artist Justin Bond, a klatch of all-Nicks/Fleetwood DJs and more. The night culminates in the always-epic Battle of 1,000 Stevies, when Stevies of every age, gender and stripe face off to determine who'll be crowned be the witchiest, twirliest and downright Stevie-est of all.
