Break out the wigs at 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. 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!
