The Library Is Open: Brian Falduto Previews Tracks From Forthcoming Debut Album STAGE TWO Comments (0)
IMG_9607*****_newFalduto is singin' the twos ...
 
Brian Falduto is best known as Billy aka Fancy Pants in the 2003 movie School of Rock. He came out as gay as a senior in college, but may have been the last to know, considering his character was famous for adoring Liza and uttering the words “You're tacky and I hate you,” lines he delivered so credibly he became known as the gay kid from School of Rock.
 
 
Having that mantle placed on you in the fifth grade can be daunting, and it would seem Falduto has dealt with the fallout via therapy, 51Y3Y2xOeQL._SX401_BO1 204 203 200_ and in song — he has spent time working on music since his sole movie appearance, releasing an EP and, soon, his debut album, Stage Two.
 
In a casual teaser of the album Monday night at NYC's the Cutting Room, Falduto sang tracks from the new album, including his current single “Rainy Day.” Warmly received by the crowd, he also touched on his EP, did some covers, had two opening acts and allowed two of his backing singers to perform works (look up Elizabeth Wyld, she was amazing). On the therapy tip, he did two readings from a book he says inspired his album, The Velvet Rage: Overcoming the Pain of Growing Up Gay in a Straight Man's World by Alan Downs, Ph.D.

Do I Know You From Somewhere? — An Evening With Patrick Leonard, Madonna Maestro Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-09-13 at 11.10.07 AMTuesday night was the long-awaited An Evening with Patrick Leonard show at Joe's Pub in NYC, featuring prolific songsmith Patrick Leonard, the man behind some of Madonna's biggest hits and most soul-baring compositions.

He's 61 and a musical genius, but this marked his solo debut!

It was a nightmare for me professionally (to the extent that being a blogger is any kind of profession) due to a series of unfortunate photographic events not worth reliving, but I did get some stuff and the show itself was bliss, a total gift to fans of Leonard's immaculate work with Madonna. As generous as his 13-song set list was, he definitely left us wanting more.
