GET DOWN WITH GUNCLE

There once was a dark and terrible time, not that long ago in fact, when the term "gay uncle" brought up unpleasant images of shadowy family black sheep and bad touching. It was a dark age indeed. But luckily, we live in the post-gay future times, and all that's firmly behind us. Now, when one hears the term "gay uncle," it raises feelings of whimsical mirth (mirthical whimsy?) and expectations of hilarity. This installment of Gay Uncle Time at the Rendezvous will feature not only everyone's favorite gay uncle, Jeffrey Robert, but also the very funny funniness of Ian Schuelke and Meg van Huygen and Peggy Platt and way too many more to mention. Guncle Jeffrey describes the show as "John Waters substituting for Garrison Keillor on a $13 budget in a friend's living room." And yes, that is completely correct. Rendezvous, 7 pm, $5, 21+.

THURSDAY 1/22

MADONNA VS. PRINCE VS. WHITNEY

Science has confirmed conclusively that Central Cinema's trademark sing-alongs are more addictive than heroin, cocaine, caffeine, and Tumblr porn COMBINED and more fun than a bucket of monkeys on molly. They have, of course, the '80s Sing-Along and the Totally Gay Sing-Along, and everyone always ends up dancing in the aisles, but I think they've really outdone themselves this time: the Madonna vs. Prince vs. Whitney Sing-Along! Which of these vicious pop-bitches will emerge victorious? WHO CARES?! One night only! Central Cinema, 8 pm, $12, all ages.

FRIDAY 1/23

ADORE DELANO—TILL DEATH DO US PARTY

Do you remember that drag queen Adore Delano? Rather cute and kinda sassy? She appeared more than 22 million years ago in the last season of RuPaul's Drag Race, which nobody cares about anymore because there aren't any Seattle queens on it this year. (Not one!) "Party"?? Right. Well, that ancient old hag will be appearing/singing/partying at tonight's very special event by Nark Magazine, which I think by now has featured every drag queen that has ever even heard of RuPaul. (I'm not saying that's a bad thing.) She's singing with a live band, from her debut album, Till Death Do Us Party (HA!). And I KNOW! Ben totally should have won last season! God knows I'm never letting that go. (Never!) And best of all, perhaps? It's hosted by the genius, world-famous makeup artiste/bearded lady Mathu Andersen. Neighbours, 9 pm, $27, 21+. recommended
