Remember that documentary Paris Is Burning? The one Madonna ripped off "voguing" from—that unforgettable glimpse inside the seedy, glamorous, and impossibly FIERCE drag scene in underground New York? Of course you do. Xtravaganza is a one-night-only homage to that film, that spirit, and those infamous "balls." DJs Post-Op, Jay Jack, and Ursula "Labeija" Android will spin the tunes, and there'll be a very special performance by Jackie Hell La Face. Haute trannies, fashionistas, and all the legendary children—start planning your outfits NOW. There'll be a sure-to-be-shady fashion runway walk-off and the door cover varies from $1—$7 depending on the ferocity of your attitude and your ensemble. Think gold lamé, girl. Bring the REAL. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 9 pm, $1—$7, 21+.)
