The amazing Kick/Ball/Change will be happening this Sunday, but before then, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get up and get down.

Kicking it off tonight, Friday, May 8th is the fantastic monthly Queer, X-Rated, Open Mic – Dirty Queer. I got to review this amazing event last month, which also serves as a great pre-funk for your weekend.6:30-9ish,  In Other Words Books,  8 B NE Killingsworth St. Sliding scale donation at the door. I’m sure we’ll see plenty of you at the Florida Room after, before Alley Hector and I dash off to lovebomb our visiting transatlantic friend at another local venue.

But have no fear, because you’ll see us punching our lights out, no doubt, at Saturday’s Blow Pony, at the Eagle Underground. NWth 6th and Davis. $3-5 cover. Party o’clock. From what I’ve heard, this is the one not to miss-it seems everyone and their dog-suit will be there. I will be having a fun time, i can predict that already.

The main event on Sunday is the phenomenal Kick / Ball / Change, hosted by the inflappable Sossity Chiricuzio, and featuring queertastic dance from the likes of Untrained, I, KO&Co., Kaj-Anne Pepper, Cattitude, and a whole lot more. Get your tickets here or at the door, which opens promptly at 7pm. Show at 8pm sharp.

Fellow QPDXer Alley wrote a preview for you can check out at Just OutHere is what she had to say about the first KBC:

Going way beyond Sparkle Motion and jazz hands, the drag, dance, performance-art stylings of Untrained, I, All of the Above, KO&Co, Beefcake Burlesque and Cattitude entertained with innovative, humorous and sexy moves that will not soon be forgotten. […] It was just about the gayest thing I have ever seen. And that is most definitely a good thing.”
I’m super excited! This weekend is definitely all about getting your dance on. See you out there!
