Something you may not know about the Devine Ms. Malinowski
In LA I was in a band called Way Tapestry and the Children of the Corn Choir. I was the part of the corn. There were 13 members. The band had an accordion, 2 guitars, bongo drums, a flute, a tambourine and costumes. Lots and lots of costumes. We did folk covers of rock songs. Our Pat Benatar medley was fuckin' killer. During the medley one of the Corn balanced a picture of Pat on top of a sword that was balanced on her forehead and walked across the stage. It was a fan favorite.
