Getting ready for Her HRC

"Psycho Shanon"

The Human Rights Campaign Dallas-Fort Worth is joining a national effort to get more women involved in HRC with the third annual “Her HRC” party next Sunday, Jan. 15, at Sue Ellen’s, 3014 Throckmorton.

Drag entertainer Cassie Nova will be the host for the event, which starts when the doors open at 2 p.m. The part includes a trivia tournament (teams need to register between 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. that day), and the Bachelorette Auction starts at 5 p.m. Radio personality Psycho Shanon from the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning Show on KISS 106.1 FM will be auctioneer.

Admission is only $10 for those 18 and up, and that admission fee includes HRC membership for a year.

Similar events are being held in 12 other cities around the country next weekend, with four more scheduled later. Organizers for the Dallas gathering warn that space is limited and the club is expected to fill up quickly, so get there early.

The Jackie Hall Experience for Christmas Eve at Sue Ellen’s

Are you experienced?

After witnessing Jackie Hall’s performance at Twist Dallas earlier this year, we couldn’t wait till she got her voice down to the gayborhood. And that happens tonight. The Jackie Hall Experience welcomes in Christmas tonight with a slew of rock, R&B and of course, Christmas carols for the night. Do all that Christmas Eve stuff early and hit up the club for a voice to remember. Seriously, how she’s not a bigger star is beyond us.

Sick of Sarah show at Prophet Bar canceled

Queer rockers Sick of Sarah will not be performing this weekend, dangit. The all-female band was touring with Now, Now and Deas Vial as part of the Oh, Christmas tour which was set to stop in Dallas on Dec. 17 at the Prophet Bar. “I guess no show,” said SOS publicist Jim Merlis when he learned that their tour van died and had to cancel the rest of this tour, according to the venue’s site.

Ouch.

This sucks because Sick of Sarah is pretty bad ass on stage. I’ve seen them before at Sue’s and they kinda melt your face off. In a good way. How apropos that I post their “Bittersweet” video below.

Halcyon live at Sue Ellen’s tonight

For the girls

Deb Hunseder and Steph Callahan are kind of a big deal. As acoustic rockers Halcyon, they’ve opened for big time names such as Joan Osborne, John Mayer and Wynonna Judd. But they headline this weekend. The Florida-based band comes to Dallas with their harmonies intact and a taste of their queer indie rock.

God-Des and She at Sue Ellen’s tonight

She and her

A hip-hop/pop/soul duo bred in the Midwest, God-Des & She now play to venues all over the world from New York to Sweden.  Ever since they appeared on Showtime’s hit series The L Word four years ago, the pair haven’t had a moment’s rest, selling over 30,000 albums, holding down the #1 spot on MTV LOGO with their song “Love You Better,” and signing autographs for eager fans.  With their new album Three, God-Des & She are about to blow up — big. Produced by Brian Hardgroove of Public Enemy (Wu Tang Clan, Burning Spear, Aerosmith), their new album confirms their status as an underground act about to hit the mainstream.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo on the Strip

Fiesta on the street

Sure Cindo de Mayo has turned into a drinking-based American celebration, but we’re gonna drop some history here on you.From the completely reliable source of Wikipedia, May 5 is the “date observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.” What’s that? Still wondering where your margarita is? Well, hit up the Strip tonight as it gets a touch of Latin flair for the holiday. From Sue Ellen’s to TMC: The Mining Company, the celebration highlights the block tonight.

DEETS: Blockwide Fiesta at Sue Ellen’s, TMC: The Mining Company, S4 and JR.’s Bar & Grill. Cedar Springs Road and Throckmorton Street. 8 p.m. PartyAtTheBlock.com.
