SADONNA is exactly what it sounds like, sad versions of Madonna songs. In this new music project Gutierrez attempts to show just how tiny the spiritual distance is between an international pop superstar who grew up in Bay City, Michigan and an international experimental itinerant who grew up in Colonia, New Jersey. In the performances he is backed by the Sad (Mostly) Latino Boys Backup Singers aka SLUTINOS and a slew of guest artists. Recent performances of SADONNA have taken place at Joe's Pub, Artists Space summer reading series, and Miguel's bedroom. Come for the Holiday, stay for the tears.
