Alexandra Starlight is so outlandishly beautiful, she could easily stand there, look pretty and become an international superstar. But when she struts onto the stage and unleashes that voice of hers, that’s when you know you’re in for something spectacular. She is Tina Turner, Shakira, Amy Winehouse, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Janis Joplin and Joan Jett wrapped in silk and sequins, commanding the room from her platform sparkle heels.

I can only wonder how she’s going to take her larger than life persona, ferocious band and heavenly backup singers and cram them onto the car hood sized stage at Hollywood’s legendary Hotel Cafe. Find out for yourself this Friday, November 9, at 9:00 PM (get tickets). Bring your sunglasses, there is going to be a lot of glitter, rhinestones and sequins. Starlight’s dazzling wardrobe (including many self-made or customized pieces) could easily make Steven Tyler jealous. A year from now, when you tell your friends you were there for a Starlight club show in the intimate and acoustically perfect Hotel Cafe, your friends will be jealous too.

For the rest of us across the land, there’s this: Alexandra Starlight’s funky, blistering, raw and uplifting debut single, “Without My Sunshine,” from the new EP: Alexandra and the Starlight Band. It’s available on POPDOSE for FREE for a limited time. If you miss it, the whole shebang is always available on Amazon.
