The Homosexual Agenda
Sophisticated Mama and Daddy Shack Disco
Um... no. We're not talking about Lady Bunny. At least not just yet... she isn't scheduled to visit until the 28th, which, if you are into calendars and time and junk like that, you know damn good and well doesn't happen until NEXT week. (Stop pestering me!) And we're also not talking about Katy Perry and her fireworks or whatever at KeyArena (it gets better! Moon, moon, moon!) nor any of the Indigo Girls at the damn zoo, because both of those things happened last night. (Pay attention!) The Sophisticated Mama we are discussing at the moment is a newish (to me at least—it's been going on since last October, apparently... where the hell have I been?) every Thursday soul night. Yes, SOUL! Being a ginger, and therefore born without a soul and thoroughly damned from the word "go," I know very little about it, but the experts tell me that resident DJs Nitty Gritty and Sad Bastard (awww... cheer up, Bastard!) and a rotating cast of guests will be spinning rare and popular soul singles from the 1960s and '70s for your musical joy and soulful edification. Tonight's special pre–Capitol Hill Block Party edition features San Francisco's Tom Temprano as DJ superguest, and the gays are thoroughly encouraged to attend. (See, Daddy? Sinners got soul, too!) Havana, 9 pm, free, 21+.
DADDY SHACK DISCO
This is a big gay dancey disco event that the Seattle Gay Scene is throwing in honor of itself (its fourth anniversary, the wee babes) and they've got DJs up the yin-yang (George Delmar and "Disco Vinnie," for example), all kinds of cheap drink specials to lure in the drunks for your getting-laid ease, and go-go boys, because, well, why the hell not? That's why. Baltic Room, 9 pm, free before 10 pm/$5 after, 21+.
