The name on everybody's lips is gonna be, Dusty! Soon before her triumphant debut on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, Dusty Ray Bottoms plays host to her own solo show at Hardware. Bringing an all-request show to the stage, Dusty also welcomed special guests dancing diva Viva Vidalia and mega mix queen Misty Mountains to wiggle too. Dusty started the night off with a request from me, her reimagining of "Roxie." She alluded to the fact that she had a rock orchestrated version in the works and I was oh so excited. She also taught us about the Eurovision girl who sounds like a chicken. And it's actually very accurate. Viva took the floor and danced the house down to Jessie J's "Domino" while Misty played the role of "whore" with her sex-ed mix and her whorehouse mix. It wouldn't be a complete night for me if I didn't get a little Queen. And Dusty delivered, ending the show with "Don't Stop Me Now." Dusty is a dotty diva of drag whose show is never short of eclectic.
