DYKES OF THE COMET

Ahhh... the sweet, sweaty siren song of the old Comet Tavern! Can you hear it? CAN YOU? It's calling us, yes, again, my darling 'mos, luring us to our delicious ruin. (Holy faggin' moly. It's safe to declare a small victory in the gay land-rights war, I think. Time to redecorate!) Tonight our Cometing is all about some seriously awesome lezbosexual banditas called Eighteen Individual Eyes, the self-proclaimed #2 Lezbo Band in Seattle. (The #1 Lezbo Band in Seattle? Any guesses? Anyone?) I've mentioned this luverly lezband before—a looong, long time ago, so if you forgot, what you need to know is that they are a group of wimmin-lurving-wimmin, draped in talent, festooned with instruments, and dripping in warm delicious AWESOME SAUCE. With Agent Ribbons (all the way from Austin, T—forgive them) and Slow Skate. Comet, 9 pm, $7, 21+.

SATURDAY 5/7

TRIX ARE FOR JINKX!

There are drag queens, and then there are performers. There are performers, and then there are geniuses. There are geniuses, then there are super- geniuses... and then there is Jinkx Monsoon. Jinkx Mon-whom, you ask? Well, you're gonna feel quite silly for asking, buster, because Jinkx Monsoon (aka Jerick Hoffer) is the way-too-brilliant to be believed little she-devil who came bursting out of nowhere and instantly became the gold standard of... well, I was going to say the gold standard of drag performers, but really? I suspect that very, very soon, she's gonna be the gold standard of everything, period. She's the hardest working "woman" in 'mo business. The style! The moxie! The voice! The smarts! The timing! The endless waves of talent pulsing, pulsing, PULSING from her relentless genius brain in waves of radiating marvelous! Divine. And this is your last chance to get your butt out to Theatre Off Jackson to experience the magic of Monsoon's one, um, "woman" show, Turning Parlor Tricks, staring yet another Hoffer/Monsoon alter ego: Deidre A. Irwin, transsexual medium. Where the hell does she come up with this stuff? Golden. Theatre Off Jackson, 9:15 pm, $12 adv/$15 DOS, all ages.
