I recently had the honor of filming the queer drag collective Switch n’ Play as they performed their “Vamp!” show in the Atrium at Lincoln Center.

This incredibly talented group has come a long way from their origins in the back room at Branded Saloon in Brooklyn. Here’s the one and only Sasha Velour doing, well… you’ll see.

Watch the whole Switch n’ Play collection here!


These days, we take the “Mockumentary” genre for granted. But in 1984, when Rob Reiner’s “This is Spinal Tap” was released, the idea was still brand-new. And many a gullible young rocker left the theater wondering, “Could this possibly be a real band?”

In many ways, the world wasn’t quite ready for “Spinal Tap” when it came out. But musicians—and the people who put up with them—understood. And through the miracle of VHS and cable TV, the film soon grew a cult following. Now, nearly 40 years later, it’s hard to walk into a Guitar Center without hearing an “Eleven” comment, or watch an aging bar band without hearing the inevitable “Hello Cleveland!” It’s the movie that launched a thousand musician jokes—as well as the brilliant and fertile improv-mockumentary career of Christopher Guest and company.

If you know this film, please join us on Tuesday, March 28 at Minnie’s Bar for a communal celebration of what Kurt Cobain called “the only rock movie worth watching”. If you’ve never seen it before, here’s your chance to see what all the fuss is about, and find out, finally, why your older musician friends crack up every time someone mentions Stonehenge.

PLUS! A collection of vintage metal-themed trailers, and a special LIVE performance by Switch n’ Play veteran and 2017 Drag King of the Year Vigor Mortis!


If you weren’t at Minnie’s Bar on November 29, all we can say is, you missed it.  

In perhaps our most meta moment yet, my monthly movie event Attack of the 50-Foot Movie celebrated its one-year Minnie’s anniversary by screening the 1958 sci-fi classic that gave us our name: “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman”. And to open the festivities, we had a larger-than-life 50-Foot Woman-themed drag performance by the one and only Miss Malice!

There will be no Attack of the 50-Foot Movie event in December.

However, on Friday, December 16, we’ll be joining forces with the infamous Last Chance Dancers for Pain and Pleasure: A Burlesque Tribute to Judas Priest at Brooklyn’s wildest heavy metal bar, Lucky 13 Saloon. I’ll be there to open the evening with an encore screening the legendary 1986 documentary “Heavy Metal Parking Lot”. Tickets are $20 and available here.

Get yours now! If you think this event won’t sell out, you’ve got another thing comin’…

Attack of the 50-Foot Movie will return to Minnie’s Bar on January 31st, 2023. Check back soon for more details.

In the meantime, here’s a pretty picture of Miss Malice for you to marvel at.

Happy New Year!
