Somewhat 90s Variety Show TOMORROW and Saturday

While my introduction to Arturo Miles’ “Somewhat Insert Theme Here Variety Show was the Somewhat Sci-fi Variety Show (so kickass, and guess what? There’s going to be a Part II in April! I am there), it all started a few years ago with his Somewhat 80s Variety Show. Has enough time passed that the 90s feel retro too? Arturo thinks so, and this Friday he will be joined by a variety of performers showing us just what the 90s meant to them. In Arturo’s case, he says that “the macarena was awful, fashion…was pretty funny…hip-hop was good!”

As for the performance itself (as always, starts at eight, tickets are ten bucks, you should definitely come! Come early if you want an actual seat!), “Aneka McMullen will be showcasing choreography inspired by the fly girls from In Living Color, B-Boy J-Sun will be throwing down a breakin’ set to 90’s beats… Manboy will sing, loop, and play the guitar to some of his 90s favorites. Aliisa Paris, Deonna and Deshonna Graylige will perform choreography to their favorite 90s cartoon themes. Anne Johnson and Nora Figl will also cover some 90s ballads. Bryce Davidson will give us another comedy improv set.” Arturo himself will be showcasing a 90s mix of comedy modern dance and a little lip-synce, plus some new waacking and house dance choreography.

First of all, I hope you’ll join all of us in wishing a fond farewell to our Communications Director, Rachel Hoffman, who is departing for the greener pastures of law school in North Dakota. Congratulations, Rachel!

Elements in Translation

Hey, y’all, Arturo Miles has a new show this Friday and Saturday, Elements in Translation. Seeing as the last show he guest-curated filled up every available seat, necessitated a row of people sitting on the floor, and packed the lobby to the extent that I had to stand on the counter to see the show–I would definitely urge you to be there before 7:30.

The ’Elements in Translation’ series continues at Patrick’s Cabaret.

Oh, and by the way, last week’s Spirit in the House=FANTABULOUS. Have I mentioned how much I want to kill people astronomically more musically or physically talented than me? (So, so much.) But then I wouldn’t get to listen to them sing and play musical instruments and dance, so I guess they’re safe. For now. *cue spooky music* Oh, and attending an Amy Salloway performance is now an official item on my Things to Do Again Before I Die list. The evening ended with a short preview film about the role of the queer tribal elder; if the eventual full-length movie is half as good it will still kick ass. Please visit www.gaywisdom.org to see how your contributions can help finish this important film.
