Live performances are preferable to taped ones, which lack immediacy and leave behind pesky adhesive markings. Rejoice in lively entertainment with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one general-admission ticket to the Golden Grrrls benefit show presented by Twin Cities Celebrations on Friday, June 3 (a $31.10 value) at Epic Event Center.
With the help of Twin Cities Celebrations’ fundraising platform, the Golden Grrrls benefit show will attempt to shimmy its way into the Guinness Book of World Records as more than 100 drag performers take the stage. The event will raise much-needed funds for The Aliveness Project’s Positive Impact Fund, which assists individuals affected by HIV/AIDS. The evening begins with a social time from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., before curtains are drawn to reveal the main event from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Snag a seat or standing perch to take in Fox 9’s Todd Walker on hosting duties and a bevy of entertainers including headliner Jackie Beat, Doug Anderson, Esera Tuaolo, and a nervous teenage stage hand. Celebrants can pose alongside a favorite performer for local shutterbug Richard Yates, then cut a rug or parquet floor as DJ Wendy Hunt closes the evening with a raucous lively turntable session.
