EXCITING NEWS, QUEERMOS: singer/songwriter we love Mal Blum is coming to A-Camp in May! I know, we can hardly contain ourselves either. In addition to performing, Mal will be conducting a songwriting workshop that I’m sure will be both instructive and full of feelings. Of her 2013 album Tempest in a Teacup, Autostraddle Music Reviewer Sarah Hansen noted, “It’s so good, you guys.”
Mal Blum sings about feelings and heartstrings, and also about zombies, cats, vegans, Valentine’s Day and parties that suck. She’s released four albums since her 2007 debut “The Malblum Album,” tours like a maniac and has played with Melissa Ferrick, Amanda Palmer, Kimya Dawson, Allison Weiss and Jenny Owen Youngs. If you go to an all-women’s college, I feel like there is a 100% chance that Mal Blum has played at your school. We’re so happy to welcome Mal into our A-Camp family, and invite you to prepare to fall in love with Mal Blum on Mount Feelings by immersing your whole face in her facebook / tumblr / twitter / bandcamp / website.
Our camp staff is shaping up to be quite spectacular and our “special programming” is gonna be off the hook.
We’re especially excited to bring on writer and interior decorator AB Chao, a blogger who runs her own design camps all over the country and has had her work featured in Better Homes & Gardens, Bon Appetit, Apartment Therapy and Uppercase Magazine.
We’ll also be joined by Aja, the femme fashion icon behind Fit for a Femme who has written for this website right here and also for Qwear. Tell me you haven’t dreamt about having a one-on-one style session with this person at least six times.
Obviously we are bringing them up the mountain for their many talents, but I’m personally THRILLED for their attendance because with these two on board and Laneia eternally on board, we can finally have a legit Queer Moms panel.
Hey, look at these cats!
If you applied for a campership, we’ll be looking through those applications this week and notifying the winners the ensuing week. We also have a few more special campership opportunities to announce! WE CAN’T WAIT WE’RE SO EXCITED.
