Delicious as she is, I have to say that the former vocalist for '90s dance-pop group Deee-Lite (pictured here, in red hair, at the Miss Trannyshack Pageant 2006 with Lady Bunny, Parker Posey, and Heklina) has nothing at all to do with Lawry's Seasoned Salt.
For some reason, those three words found their way into the print version of my show preview (after the jump). WTF? Lawry's, however, is a key ingredient in this week's Sound Bite, in which Night Canopy's Nick deWitt shares his recipe for tourtiere.
Just so you know. Lady Kier is spicy alright, but Christ almighty...

Lady Miss Kier
Sometimes, nobody is going to tell you where the party is. You have to read about it on a light pole, which is where I saw that freaking LADY MISS KIER from DEEE-LITE is playing a DJ set tonight at See Sound Lounge’s ‘80s night, HIP2B. I’m sure the original club kid, now a globe-trotting party monster and DJ, has visited Seattle since 1997 (when Ariel Stallings bemoans Kier’s jungle mixing in an old issue of Lotus magazine, R.I.P.) but for those who’ve missed her or never seen her in the flesh, tonight’s appearance is a very welcome blast from the past. Psychedelic and 60s’-inspired as Kier’s aesthetic is, her randy and politically outspoken disco-house with Deee-Lite mates Dmitry and Towa Tei always invoked a brighter, dewier, future. Johnny Fever opens. See Sound Lounge, 115 Blanchard St., 374-3733. 10 p.m. $10 adv./$15. RACHEL SHIMP
