More Backstage Art

I'm busy booking the next tour. Sitting in front of my laptop all day is getting to me so I thought I'd post some more photos of some or the weird backstage art I get to see to remind myself that soon I'll be in a dark dirty backstage again. Enoy the art and I'll see you at a show real soon!

Your name here

One of the fun perks of taking off your clothes on stage, eating fire and getting in a box filled with 18 razor sharp blades is that afterwards lots of people want to talk to you. Some people want pictures others want autographs. It's still funny to me that people want me to sign stuff I don't really consider myself that big a deal but the people who pay to get into the show are the reason that the show can keep going so I'm happy to oblige in anyway I can. Usually it's just our 8X10 photos, postcards of some other kind of merch but I'm not picky I'll sign anything you put in front of me. As I tell all our wonderful fans "I'll sign anything but a check" Here are a few photos of some of the funnier things I've put my name on.

Some people have gone so far as to tattoo my name or logo on them. Those people are truly awesome. If you have a go-go Amy tattoo make sure to send a pic to me!

Backstage graffiti from San Antonio

Hi. I'm go-go Amy pin up model, burlesque dancer and producer of the touring vaudeville extravaganza THE PRETTY THINGS PEEPSHOW. You can find out stuff about me and my show on my website www.gogoamy.com but I figured I start this blog to show everyone what goes on behind the scenes of the show and my crazy touring life.

One of my favorite things to collect when I'm touring is photos of the amazing art that I find backstage and in the bathrooms of the clubs we play. My brother is Dave Warnke a famous street artist who lives in San Francisco so street art, public art and graffiti fascinates me. Here are a few of my favorites. These are from the Rock Bottom Tattoo Bar in San Antonio Texas.
