WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Stonewall Kickball’s End-Of-Season Shebang, an Open Bar at Boxers PHL, Tara Hendricks at World Cafe Live and More
Philly singer-songwriter Joshua Thomas returns to the Tin Angel on his mini tour to promote his latest EP, The Harboring. This time he’ll be joined by show openers Cape Wrath and Jennifer Pague of Vita and the Woolf. A romantic evening of fabulous, locally made music awaits.
- Short Stack and Christian Alsis join Dr. Timaree for the monthly sex-ed game show DTF: Daryl and Timaree Fun Hour. (Psst: It’s BYOB)
- You’ve seen her on Fashion Police and even Hello Ross!, but now world-famous, always-naughty drag queen Jackie Beat is ready to tackle her next feat: a solo show in Philadelphia! The bawdy queen will make her Philly debut Friday night at Voyeur in her solo comedy show And the Beat Goes On. In it, she will talk about working in the drag business for the past 25 years, and remind all you heifers that she was the Queen of Shade before Bianco Del Rio ever thought about gluing on those wonky lashes.
- Believe it or not Liberty City Kings Drag and Burlesque matriarch Lascivious Jane turns 40 this week, and she’s celebrating with her Mama’s House all-female cabaret. She’ll be joined by burlesquers Luci Rising, Jezabelle von Jane, and Reggie Bügmüncher. Stick around when the show’s over for the dance party, and to wish Miz Jane a happy birthday.
History buffs and mimosa lovers (which covers about all of us, right) will dig at Bloody Mary Drag Brunch at Victoria Freehouse starring comedic queens Aurora Whorealis, Pissi Myles, and Lili St. Queer. The ladies are bound to come dressed as some of history’s fiercest crowned divas while you chow down on the gay-owned Victoria Freehouse’s English-inspired brunch fare and guzzle bottomless mimosas.
- Boxers PHL hosts its grand-opening celebration with an hour of open-bar shenanigans.
- The Golden Girls and GayBINGO together on one night? That card has win-win-win written all over it. Join the Bingo Verifying Divas for this month’s AIDS Fund-benefitting game, which promises to be rife with “cheesecake, stories about Sicily and Saint Olaf and a whole lotta laughs.” Floor seats are sold out, but there are still balcony spots available. Better hurry, Rose.
Josh Schonewolf hosts a concert performance at World Café Live, featuring “soul sirens on the rise” Tara Hendricks and Bradd Marquis. You can also look out for Hendricks in Schonewolf’s upcoming Songbird 3.
- Halloween is long gone, but Liberty City Kings Drag and Burlesque still have plenty of tricks up their … um, corsets. Their eighth-anniversary spectacle Tricks & Treats will feature performance highlights from the past year and, for you high rollers, special VIP tables with champagne service. Cheers, bitches!
- Spectrum Philly and Brittany Lynn team up for a Jewish-inspired drag brunch at Tabu. I hope you’re ready for some challah!
- Stonewall Kickball Philadelphia hosts its end-of-season banquet at Field House, where organizers will dole out awards for the season and throw back a few brewskies in celebration. (That’s how the bros say it, right?) Starts at 6 p.m.
