Well, thanks to Barbie, we are all covered in pink these days. But the thing is that our boy was pretty in pink way before it was THE color! 🙂
Well, when you see your favorite actor in a three-piece pink suit, you sit down and write about the man and the color.
Now, here is a simple question for you: What comes to your mind first when you think about the color pink? A little girl dressed in princess attire? Pink-wrapped chocolate on Valentine’s Day? Cherry blossoms or pink roses maybe if you are into flowers or radishes and rhubarbs if you are a foodie. Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis in Pink”
When I first heard Damian’s song Down on the Bowery (released April 13, 2023), it didn’t take long to figure out the song was about Alison and the history of their recurrent stays at The Bowery Hotel located at 333 The Bowery in New York City’s lower East Side. But what intrigued me more were certain lyrics that made my ears instantly perk up. Specifically, “blood on the walls in a siren city, your face all cut up but you looked so pretty.” What in the world could that be about, I wondered. I even tweeted to Damian about it back in April, 2023:
While the original post is from 2016, I am inspired to share it again because Damian posted about him and Alison taking the subway in NYC earlier today! And may I just say I find their matching sneakers very cute!!!
Here is the most HILARIOUS conversation between Damian Lewis and Nick Grimshaw, the host of BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show that Damian joined last week. You can hear the radio bit (short version) here and (long version, starts at 01:33:48) here. BIG thanks go to JaniaJania for transcribing part of the conversation for me!
“I wanted the album to give a sense of a journey to this point, from busking ‘til now. I suddenly had a lot to say. People will judge if it’s any good or not, but for me, it felt entirely natural.” – Damian Lewis
Move over (your favorite band), there is a new musician in town!
Damian Lewis has dropped his first ever single “Down On The Bowery” today! You can use this link to listen and download from several platforms. The music video is right here. You can also pre-order Damian’s debut album Mission Creep due out on June 16, 2023 here! If you pre-order the album on any format before 12pm BST on Tuesday 18th April you will receive an exclusive ticket pre-sale code for Damian’s biggest gig to date at Union Chapel on July 11. The pre-sale will be live on Wednesday 19th April at 10am BST.
Damianista’s note 03/22/2023: Since the Hoxton Hall gig has been recorded professionally and that it will be released later this year, we cannot share the live videos we made at the gig. But you may find live videos from Damian’s other gigs on our YouTube channel.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, I had a 48-hour lightning trip to London for fun with fan friends and a fantastic evening of music at Hoxton Hall in East End with the one and only Damian Lewis and his fabulous band. And when I asked my blog mate Gingersnap before my trip that whether she thought I was crazy, I got this response.
“You’re not crazy. But you have a new name. Groupie!”
Seriously, how many times do you need to travel to see a musician in action to qualify as a groupie? 🙂
It was such a magical night that, ten days later, this groupie still the under the spell of Damian’s spectacular performance and ready to tell you all about how our Ginger Elvis has ruled on stage and off – he has made time for everyone, his guests and his fans, after the gig. He had pictures taken, gave autographs as well as bear hugs.
So please come join me in the historic and intimate music hall that is Hoxton Hall, and live or re-live ( if you were lucky enough to be there!) every single detail from that terrific evening.
