I caught my first glimpse of Trannysaurus Rox at their very first show, an evening of wonder and debauchery at The Josephine. At the time all I saw was a horsewhip held high above the crowd and later pieced that recollection together with another of a bearded-girl in assless chaps. I didn’t know who they were and neither did anyone else, but I knew they were worth looking into, so I got in touch with the lead guitarist and asked about meeting him at their next show… ASAP. He got back to me ASAP, saying that they were playing a show “TONIGHT” […]

There’s a new variety show in town and it’s happening this Friday at the Triple Door. The lineup is impeccable, featuring writer Dan Savage, the fabulous Mama Tits and Monarch favorite Prom Queen, among others.

We had a chance to chat with Xolie about her condition, the show and much more. When you approached us about this show there was a particular energy to your voice […]

One Super Important Question for Dawn Trudeau
April 17th, 2015
The Seattle Storm – our WNBA team – just picked 1st in the 2015 draft. Who did they select? Jewell Loyd, a 20-point scorer and the census best college player, from Notre Dame. Given the Storm’s poor finish last year and their recent coup in the draft, I wanted to ask team co-owner, Dawn Trudeau, one super important question.
