Queer/trans cult heroes Lynnee Breedlove and Silas Howard (both formerly of the punk band Tribe 8) will be stopping in Memphis Friday night on their Mighty Real Tour. The night promises a couple of comedic dueling solo shows tackling gender issues, as well as performances by local artists. The event will be held in the Memphian Room at Playhouse on the Square, and it begins at 10:30 p.m.
Breedlove will perform "Confessions of a Poser: The Mystery of the Purple Dick, How Queers and Transmen Can Exploit Lesbian Legacies, and How to Be Both a Buddhist and a Man at the Same Time."
Howard will perform "Thank You For Being Urgent: A Textured Tale of a Queer Punk Spilling Into the Crappy and Exalted Glitter of Hollywood's Desire and Shame, True Tales of Fierce Outsiders, American Dream Loopholes, Burlesque Dancers with Dementia, and Tranny Jazzmen."
Backstreet drag performer Demonica will MC the event, which will also feature a cello performance by Tamar Moten, a belly dance by Chris Reeder, a drag king show by Will Ryder, sexy hula-hooping by Miss Provino, and burlesque routine by Memphis Belle Miss Lola Vee.
