Queer Futures: You Beast, You Gem

You Beast, You Gem is the brainchild of queer artists Crystal Meisinger & Elissa Johnson. This Friday marks the second installment of their collaboration, manifesting itself in the form of queer performance, film & music. Hosted again by our lovely friends at the West Bank Social Center, You Beast, You Gem features performances by the Default Project's Loveless Ladies, Barton Stink, Mysti & Sissy La Poo, Mr E Krumpin Clown, Acroyoga Troupe & Marsha Stoned with Muscle Twitch. Come early to see a dj set by Lillith Fair & a short set by locals Brute Heart. YourSteppaDuJour will be taking over music duties after the first set of performances and will close out the night. Unkle Sinan of Minneapolis Art on Wheels will be playing videos through out the night as well! The West Bank Social Center is located above the Nomad on the West Bank of Downtown MPLS, show time is 9-2am & it's gonna cost you kids $3-5 bones. I've made a promo mix for ya'll to enjoy before the show!
