CLUB: If you're a Madonna fan, tonight's Trannyshack Madonna Tribute must be "Just Like a Prayer." Trannyshack superstars Heklina, Exhibit Q., Kim Burly, Miss Rahni, Holy McGrail, Jordan L’Moore, Ambrosia Salad, Lindsay Slowhands, and Precious Moments pay tribute to the queen of pop tonight, also featuring the return of KIMO’s 20 Years Of Madonna In 20 Minutes and DJ Adrian (Bootie) spinning all Madonna, all night. (9:30 p.m. to 3 a.m., DNA Lounge, 375 Eleventh St)
Trannyshack, San Francisco’s infamous drag performance night club, shocked and delighted packed audiences every Tuesday night at midnight for over twelve years. Defying all expectations, Trannyshack incorporated everything from low brow trash to high brow performance art, and became famous (or, infamous) worldwide as the quintessential San Francisco experience. No visit to the City was complete without a stop at Trannyshack.
The club has been featured in Out (which named it one of the top 10 reasons to move to San Francisco), Genre, Instinct, and Paper magazines and won numerous Best of the Bay awards, and was filmed for an independent feature length documentary, titled “Filthy Gorgeous: The Trannyshack Story”. Trannyshack is now branching out its empire, with shows in LA, London, Waikiki, Seattle, Portland, New Orleans, and Reno enjoying great success.
