Dammit. Seattle Pride Weekend info is leaking out all over the place…like Grandad’s old underpants. We’ve already found out who the Pride Parade marshals are, and some Pridefest events are already up on the Facebooks. Rumors are already brewing that Cher/Madonna/Gaga/Marlene Dietrich/Mrs. Fisk are going to stage a mega concert at the intersection of Pike and Broadway….It’s only the first of April but the Pride 2015 Train is already huffing and puffing at the station.
Like Grandad’s old underpants.
Also just leaked and puffed: info about Nark Magazine’s plans for Seattle Pride Weekend. DJ Nark (aka Kevin Kauer) and his crew have already set in place an action packed line-up of parties, orgies and cruises that will kick off with the 18th annual GENDER BLENDER Party which is making a move back to old stomping grounds….hq’d at Neighbours for the last couple years, the crazy drag infused parTAY to end all parTAYS will return to NEUMOS on Thursday, June 25, 2015….with host and native diva, BenDeLaCreme, from Season Six of “Roople’s Drag Race”. And joining her on stage from Season Seven (the current, less than exciting season), fan favorite GINGER MINJ with two other (bitchy) front runners, the fashion forward duo of VIOLET CHACHKI and MISS FAME!
Local starlets, Cucci Binaca, Amoania and, rapidly aging “teen” witches, The Markos Sisters will also slap on the warpaint to entertain the jaded troops, and the DJs will be Rob Winter and Shelrawka.
Individual tickets are only on sale right now for Gender Blender, but since most of you will be going to some/most of the events, you might as well buy the damn weekend pass NOW and get it over with!
The pass will also get you onto the Saturday, June 27th afternoon boat cruise and the big, mysteriously zexy night time party at hot new venue, “The Big Building” w/ Tim Sweeney (Beats in Space, NYC), Bottom Forty (Nark, Pavone, Spaceotter, Hyasynth), Recess (Shameless), Sean Majors (Lost Boys), High & Tight (Cody Morrison and Carlos Ruiz), Wesley Holmes (Flammable) and Futurewife (PYT Records). And, more to be announced.
The pass MIGHT get you into the Friday night special DICKSLAP at The Eagle, depending on what time you show up….but, it doesn’t GAR-IN-TEE admission. The Eagle ain’t that big and Nark has to sell 80,000 tickets to fill the bigger venues, so do the math, honey…
General Admission Weekend Passes are $80 and VIP Weekend Passes are $115 and get you some perks and more schmooze time with the talent. Snag them over at StrangerTickets, w/fees, or at Atomic Cosmetics, without fees.
Individual tickets to GENDER BLENDER are available at NEUMOS and they’re $35 + fees for GA and $70 + fees for VIP so yeah, the Weekend Pass might be the way to go…
Here’s all the available info. ALL these events are 21+ w/ID. Start your planning.
