If Stevie Nicks were to attend Night of a Thousand Stevies incognito, what would she wear? Nicks is rumored to have attended the massive annual fan event disguised as herself back in 2000. “I cannot confirm or refute this,” says Chi Chi Valenti, NOTS’s founder and producer, “but several of the fanatic Stevie lovers swore they saw someone who had the same retinal patterns as Stevie.” See if you can spot the real deal or just some truly awesome look-alikes beneath all the beads, lace, and chiffon at NOTS 18: “Nightbirds.” An “all-Stevie, all-Fleetwood” soundtrack provides the mystical ’70s pop-rock ambience, plus performances by Cirque du Soleil star Joey Arias and puppeteer Basil Twist.
