The Prince has been seen trilling across stages all over Los Angeles. From Opening for the Dresden Dolls at the Orpheum, to appearing for Ann Magnuson at the RedCat
What my Loyal Subjects are saying!:
"John Quale shines as the glam vamp opera diva Prince Poppycock, a Louis IV confection or occasional Nancy Sinatra-esque chanteur/chanteuse in gold glitter boots with world-class vocal talent. No lip-syncing for Mr. Quale, who is a true artist and transforms himself Klaus Nomi style once he graces the stage. Nina Hagen would be proud, as would Diamanda Galas....Prince Poppycock could surely out-diva Paris Hilton any day"

"From the first time I saw his MySpace photo, he became the person I'd most like to meet. Then I saw him live- out of his royal drag- when he appeared as none other than Jesus Christ at the Steve Allen Theater's "The Beastly Bombing". I was in awe of his operatic skills, and flawless (and hairless) dancer's body. Then I saw him perform his brand of baroque pop in his pantaloons and powdered wig and was instantly converted into a hardcore disciple of the Poppy that is Cock! Thank goodness he found his way to Tinseltown and is confounding audiences with a new kind of hip - one covered in lace and pink satin. What better way to outrage the aging punk rockers?"

"John Quale steals the show as Jesus"
"Memorable performances included the operatic trillings of androgynous, über-sexy, powdered-wig-wearing Prince Poppycock (who capped off his performance by ripping off his silk pants to reveal some very skimpy ruffled pantaloons)."
"Along with the chance of finding a topless organ player, a live mermaid revue or, if you're really lucky, Prince Poppycock, a 6-foot-tall singing aristocrat-androgyne in brocade, silk and pantaloons. "
