Beth Malone: So Far
Formerly best known for originating the role of June Carter Cash in the short-lived musical Ring of Fire, Malone is now butching out eight times a week as the star of Broadway's Fun Home. In this LezCab event, she revisits a solo show that traces her path from Colorado child to Broadway baby.
Dollypalooza: An Epic Fan Tribute to Dolly Parton
Dolly Parton is a national treasure, right up there with the Washington Monument and the Golden Gate Bridge (although much better looking and possessing a more pleasant singing voice). This event, presented by nightlife vet Bevin Branlandingham and World Famous *BOB*, is a tribute to the living legend and all the good times and great songs she's shared with us over the years. Performers include DJ Nath Ann Carrera, Merrie Cherry, Sequinette, Lady Quesa'Dilla, West Vargina, Crimson Kitty and the Parton cover band Doll Parts. Come on down, y'all!

Rites XXXVII: The Black Party
The Black Party weekend culminates in this all-night and most-of-the-next-day celebration of debauchery. Make sure to dress the part (i.e., whatever makes you feel sexy), and be prepared to have your mind blown by sexy-scary performances and epic DJ sets.
