Summer is usually pretty slow in Dallas, probably because it’s so hot. But heat wasn’t an issue this week, with four straight days of rain. So you should feel plenty energized to get some stuff done!
Lesbian girl groups are in abundance this week, with Brazil’s CSS performing at the House of Blues on Friday in support of their album Planta. And you can make it a weekend of chick rock with Big Bad Gina, performing in Fort Worth on Saturday.
Lovely Uranus isn’t a lesbian, she’s a drag queen — the best third-rate drag queen in Texas. Lovely is back in another campy play from MBS Productions, Forever Lovely, at the Stone Cottage Theatre in Addison. It’s sure to be a hoot (and there’s a naked fella in it!) It’s playing weekends through Aug. 10.
You can seen another drag queen — in fact, Drag Racer Carmen Carrera — at Joe’s/The Brick on Friday night at 10. Shantee, she can stay, at least until she has to sashay away.
If you care to try your luck, In the Heat of the Night — the annual party with a casino theme, pictured — will be raising money for the Legal Hospice of Texas on Saturday at the Dallas Contemporary.
