DINA MARTINA: AMPLE WATTAGE, like all of Martina’s surreal shows, is a nearly indescribable night of unique entertainment that assaults the senses like no other show. Perhaps the best description of Dina comes from a glowing review in Seattle’s famed alternative weekly The Stranger: “Her voice sounds like a cat having an epileptic fit on a chalkboard, her body moves like two pigs fighting their way out of a sleeping bag, and her face looks like the collision of a Maybelline truck with a Shoney’s buffet. But Dina redefines what it means to be a star.”
Buy tickets here. I’m a hardcore fan – and saw her show eleven separate times this year in Ptown (and it’s the same show with only minor tweaks every night). Dan Savage was her lighting man in her early Seattle shows. Previous videos of Dina here, here, here and here. “Ask Anything” archive here.
