Rumors of the ABBA Sing Along's Demise?
Greatly Exaggerated

It's on, Dancing Queens!

Feel the beat? From the tambourine? OH YEEEAH!
Feel the beat? From the tambourine? OH YEEEAH!

It's on, kvinno-hunds! Despite the weird email this morning about the cancellation of the ABBA Sing Along, all's well and there are no changes.

UPDATE, Tue., Aug. 5: We already have our winner!!!

Apparently some anxious board type at Softball Austin got twitchy when he learned that the Alamo had scheduled the Mamma Mia! Sing Along for the night after. Cooler heads have prevailed.

Want to win a pair of tickets? Email us here at Gay Place ( with your name and a Monday phone number, plus the four first names of the Abba gang, we will pick a winner at random from the first 50 who email in by noon on Monday. We'll announce your lucky lucky name (and call you) that day, 1pm.

To reit: Mon., Aug. 4, a fundraiser to benefit Softball Austin: The ABBA Sing-Along will feature performances and "videos" of the sweet li'l Swedes.
