Atlanta is truly lucky to have DIAMOND LIL in our midst. Of all the female illusionists whove graced the stages of the clubs and after-hours gin joints in this fair city, lets face it: Shes the queen. Lil is the only one who has withstood the test of time. Old-timers remember the days when she only played at the hippest rock clubs in the 70s and 80s. The majority of the gender-bending, wigged-out and falsified flock of she-gulls in the scene merely lip-sync and strut. Diamond Lil has actual songs and two albums to her credit. Shes not a drag at all; shes a rare and fair lady. And shes so old-school, she doesnt even have a website.
