TUNES: If Leona Lewis's sensational smash Bleeding Love has you craving for more '90s-reminiscent R&B pop splendor, rejoice in the release of her first full-length album, Spirit, in stores Tuesday, April 8. The album is the product of a world-class voice, polished with material hand-selected by record industry moguls Clive Davis and Simon Fuller. To learn more about Lewis (and her recommendations on how to be her at your next drag show) check back at Out.com later this week to read our interview with the pop diva-in-training.
DRAG: Who says everything happens in Manhattan? New York City's Victoria at the Stonewall Inn is not one to forget its other-borough patrons. On Saturday, April 12, check out Bridge & Tunnel Night, an evening celebrating the lovely ladies -- and big hair -- of Long Island, Queens, and New Jersey. The event not only benefits charity, but includes performances by Bridget Everett, Raven Snook, Darlinda Just Darlinda, and the Victorians: Sequinette, Blue Mystique, Alexia Tate, and Lady Coco Lareau.
LIVE: Queer musician Dylan Rice and his band will be taking to the stage April 10 at Martyrs' in Chicago at 9pm. Pick a hot date for the evening and let Rices guitar-driven, harmony-heavy rock (which conjures Pete Yorn, Chris Isaak, and Morrissey) do the rest. Meanwhile, sample his music here.
SPECTACLE: Its your last week to catch Zsa Zsa Gershicks dramedy, Bluebonnet Court, in San Diego. The NAACP and GLADD Media Awardwinning show is a World War II-era lesbian love story set in Austin, Texas, where issues of anti-Semitism, racism, and homophobia all come to life. Playing at the Diversionary Theater. Tickets can be purchased here.
