Fatty Cakes - Brought to you by Hott Dust

It was just a typical day doing typical things with my pals Fatty Cakes and the Puff Pastries hanging around at the sacred Studio Itz! Tired of the status quo, Fresnan, Amber Fargano founded the Church of Fatty Cakes in 2010 dazzling spaces with a beautiful voice, chord organ and glockenspiel! As time progressed Amber asked dear friends Victoria Crow and Staci Mcdowell to be back up dancers "witch" bagan the trio of Fatty Cakes and the Puff Pastries! With all the fun they were having, Fargano aquired past band mates from Strawberry Jam, Vishinna Crowsmith and Audrey Johnson to join in on the party!

We had a great time laughing about stories that occured on their recent South, East mini tour. From the magic of puppets, the haunting of a ghost cat and the Hott Dust that consumes us all! We explored the evolution of a theme that started off as fat liberation and body positivity and how over the years its grown to be a table for all that need a place to be thier authentic selves and to be heard and seen under a system of oppression.

Be on the lookout for the next show in your area as these talented folks are gearing up to perform at Mosswood Meltdown in Oakland, San Francisco's Great American Music Hall and Fresno's Strummers!

For a more spicey experience listen below for a behind the scenes peek that is Fatty Cakes and the Puff Pastries! Blowin like Hott Dust in the wind.....See y'all down the line.
