If it’s Friday and you’re at Pieces, get ready to get frisky! Hosted by Dusty Ray Bottoms and Ruby Roo, Frisky Fridays is a show best served drunk. Why? Because they’re kicking off the weekend! With a room filled with fans of the pair and just some random passerbys, Dusty and Ruby welcome anyone and everyone to their show. No really. Come in drag and they’ll invite you to do a number or two! Is it because they’re so generous or just lazy? That’s for you to decide. Regardless, the packed house loves the energy that this duo brings to the stage. Whether it was friendly faces in the crowd or just some killer performances, the guests of the night kept the drive going. Vanna Deux slayed with her Pokemon mix, Nicole Onoscopi proved she’s a tweeny rockstar, Krymson Scholar danced the house down, and Aviva Dickman, well she did her infamous no dialogue number and utterly confused this crowd. And it was everything. Like any drag show, the night featured an audience game. This time it was musical shots, and since it was my birthday, I was pulled up to be a participant. I only lasted one round, but the shot was well worth it.
There are many drag options on a Friday night, but Frisky Fridays should certainly be on your to-do list. Where else can you see two queens do a number from Bat Boy where the audience begs for more. Their second set is a bit more, shall we say, relaxed, but that’s part of the charm.
