The Jobriath Medley is performance artist Ann Magnuson’s lushly orchestrated musical and spoken word tribute to the spectacularly talented glam rocker Jobriath, “an artist who was too far out – and OUT – for his time.” This Friday at the Redcat Theater in Los Angeles, Ann will perform her Bowie cabaret and the Jobriath Medley as part of the Outfest 2012 lineup. Tickets here. Also check out her Kickstarter to help fund the epic 30-minute EP that combines spoken-word storytelling with the extraordinary songs from Jobriath’s phantasmagoric catalogue here.

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to-DyTHxad0 Damiana delighted in interviewing legendary auteur John Waters on the Outfest opening night orange carpet on Thursday, where John received Outfest’s 2012 Achievement Award. Damiana chats with him about the shock value of his celebrated films, and his ensemble of fabulously freaky actresses and muses. Damiana also gives a quick “Go Ricki” to Ricki Lake, and chats with Alicia Witt from Waters’ 2000 film Cecil B. Demented, who’s accompanied by the handsome David Ross, her co-star in this year’s Outfest film I Do, directed by wowlebrity Glenn Gaylord. Also look out for a background cameo by the always mysterious and beautiful Bai Ling. More of Damiana’s Outfest carpet coverage is coming soon, including interviews with Lance Bass, Haley Joel Osment, Diane Ladd, and more. Subscribe to “Daily Freak Show” on YouTube.
