Misty Martinez is constantly high on cocaine

I’ve been digging through my archives lately, reacquainting myself with the pleasures (and annoyances) of working with “film” (in the days of yore, this is what you stuck in your camera). I just stumbled upon photographs I shot of the magic that was (apparently she’s in retirement) Ms. Misty Martinez, a gal who brought elegance and sophistication to the faded glory of Chicago’s Congress Theater, gracing the stage as one of the cavalcade of muliebrous stars comprising Ladyfest. Unless my research team is sadly mistaken, this transpired on August 18, 2001.
