Viva La Vie Boheme!

Viva La Vie Boheme!

Ever hear a Lost Girl sing? Now’s your chance…
ADP: I can’t quite believe that I’m advertising this on the LG blog, but I will be doing a guest performance with the incredible rock cover band M-Theory this Saturday night at Connelly’s Klub here in New York City. That’s right–me, a stage, a mic and a song that I’ve...
