On the weekend of September 6th and 7th, the 3rd Annual drag madness known as Bushwig is gonna destroy Brooklyn. YES, two days/nights of nonstop drag performance and insanity will electrify Bushwick’s Secret Project Robot.
I attended Bushwig last year (it was a one-day gig, then) and it was beyond FUN. And it also shows that in addition to the wondrous queens we see on RuPaul’s Drag Race, there are scores and scores more of young, hungry, arty, deranged, talented, freaky and delightful queens out there making art, scaring children, destroying perfectly good wigs, and creating genre-defying performances while also making their parents rethink their child-rearing choices. SERIOUSLY, it’s gonna be UNBE-WEAVE-ABLE!
From the Bushwig 2014 press info:
“Highlights this year include 160 performances going on throughout the day and night, live music, DJ sets, BBQ, crafts, photo booth, games, and prizes. Some of the key performers are Penny Arcade, Dynasty Handbag, Soft Pink Truth, Poisonous Relationship, Tami Tamaki, JD Samson, Bottoms, Bushwick’s very own Horrochata, Macy Rodman, Untitled Queen, Merrie Cherrie, and Cherry Pepsi plus many, many more.”
You can go on either day, or buy a weekend pass and just binge for abut 36-hours on face-paint and f*ckery! AND here’s a big whacked out list of performers, so you can look and see if the queen you made out with last year is expected back:
