Lights! Camera! SPIT!

Posted by qpeters on June 1, 2011

Hey beaus and belles!

Are you ready for a totally radical, tubular, gnarly time at SPIT – California Dreams? (Either I’m talking in Californian, or in Super Mario World Star World levels…I can’t tell) Sorry, we were hanging ten and chilling out at some groovy events like Prance, Queer Bash and Supernature and got lazy on our blog. Like, hella sorry!

I’ll get the details out right off the bat:

SPIT – California Dreams

Friday, June 3rd
@ The Awesome ANZA Club
3 W 8th Ave (Ontario @ 8th)

9PM
$12 (2-for-1 before 10:30)

[And hey, if you don’t wanna pay and want to help us out, send us an email at spit.vancouver@gmail.com and you can volunteer for an hour – free entry and a free drink!]

No dresscode, but California slutwear is highly encouraged! And free entry for those with a California ID!

This time around the lovely Jef Leppard is on stay-cation so we’ve got new resident hottie DJ Jay Douglas on the decks and returning for a second go at the music-making, DJ J-Mac!

To get us into the California vibe, I thought I’d share a few California-themed songs to prepare ourselves.

Okay, so I said “a few songs”…but I stopped after this one when I realized just HOW many songs there are about California. Holy crap, check out the Wikipedia article! You get the point. Pick your fave to get in the mood.

Isolde bares it all for the vassals in her court!

I think I’m most excited for (aside from wearing tank tops all night) the wonderful stage talent this time.  Firstly, we introduce to the SPIT stage (it’s about time, eh?) the Queen of East Van herself, Isolde N. Barron! Isolde’s agent, bodyguard and pool-boys all agreed on the following about her:

The Queen of East Van, Isolde N. Barron, is a multifaceted theatre artist. She co-created and performed in 20 Minute Drag School for the Firehall Art Centre’s BC Buds. She has been nominated as Drag Queen of the Year for Xtra! West’s Hero Awards for her fundraising endeavours at High School Confidential, For the Girls and Queer Bash. Isolde is Vancouver’s Entertainer of the Year for 2010 and Duchess of Vancouver, BC and all of British Columbia, except Surrey, in the Imperial House of Toe for the Dogwood Monarchist Society. She hosts her own weekly show, Apocalypstick every Sunday night at the Cobalt – 917 Main Street. In boy form, as Cameron Mackenzie, she is the founder and artistic director of Zee Zee Theatre. Upcoming both Isolde’s and Cameron’s worlds collide when they assistant direct the Broadway hit musical La Cage aux Folles at the Vancouver Playhouse.

We’re excited to have Ms. Barron at SPIT for the first time and we know she won’t disappoint. Seriously, she won’t! We’re also introducing to SPIT a queen that rode the reverse Chinook winds and landed her in Vancouver in a splash of fabulous glory: Jerrica Jem Benton! You may have seen her at Supernature this month, but if you didn’t you’re in for a treat. Her biography was unavailable at the time of press (lost by Air Canada perhaps?) but I can tell you that in our circle we’re calling her the “Pride of the Prairies” And heck, she told me she’s originally from Manitoba. Maybe our parents drank in the same bar once or something.

This is what you missed at Supernature, bitches! Jerrica doing East Van meets glam realness

Phew. My typing fingers are getting tired. But before I end, let me completely digress and say that I am still sore about the outcome of Rupaul’s Drag Race. Raja, you suck. Yara Sofia, you were robbed. That is all.

Is THIS what you want as the next drag superstar?

Now HERE is a winner! Yara Sofia!

See you all on Friday for SPIT! Be ready to strut your BEACH BODs for prizes from our sponsors Steamworks and Priape. Surf’s up!

xoxo Q

la fiesta vuelve el SEIS DE MAYO! (and GO AND VOTE!)

Posted by mkushnir on May 2, 2011

hermanos! hermanas! amigos!

remember, if we find out that you didn't vote, we will nag you until the next election. and nobody wants that. so for all of our sakes, just vote!

first thing’s first: remember, TODAY (MAY 2) IS THE FEDERAL ELECTION – make sure to get your ass to the ballot box! any questions (i.e. where to vote, what do i need to vote)? elections canada has all the info you could ever want (and then some). so check it out!

TEN REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE

  1. democracy is like having a smoking hot body – if you don’t exercise it, you’re gonna lose it.
  2. if you don’t vote, you can’t really complain when the government does something you don’t like.
  3. a federal election costs $300 million dollars – we’d better make the most of that money!
  4. there are a lot of people out there in the world that are DYING – literally – to vote.
  5. jake shears will make out with you. (well, ok, not necessarily, but i’ll bet anything that it will improve your odds if you asked him!)
  6. your vote matters! don’t believe me? in the 2008 election, the race in vancouver-south was decided by only 20 votes! plus, it is worth almost $1.90 to the party that you vote for.
  7. you might meet the love of your life at the polling station.
  8. by law, you are entitled to three consecutive hours to vote – so why not leave work a bit early today?
  9. everyone is doing it (no, really! they are!) – you don’t want to be left out, right?
  10. rick mercer commands you.

ok, now that that’s over with, the time has come to let loose and celebrate springtime, whether ma’ nature is ready for it or not! (i dunno about you but i’m ready for a heatwave any time soon now.)

so here we go again – the chaos descends once more in pleasant mount pleasant – be prepared!

SPIT – the SEIS DE MAYO PARTY!

Friday May 6 – Doors at 9 PM

April Fools! SPIT is tonight! No joke!

Posted by qpeters on April 1, 2011

Hey kiddos,

SPIT is tonight…I thought maybe you’d want to know about all of the lovely performances going on tonight. On the decks we have the sexiest DJ duo on this side of the water, Jef Leppard and Jay Douglas! The music is going to be bumpin’!

First up we have the adorable JJ Finey:

JJ grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan and began singing for audiences at the age of three. He continued to perform throughout his early childhood in musicals, plays and dance ensembles.He began writing his own music and lyrics at the age of 15. He possesses dozens of original compositions that he plans to record in the future. Right now he is happy and excited to show urbanites of Vancouver what he’s made of. This young artist vocals are uniquely stylistic and presented powerfully on stage.

Ain't he cute!

Ain't he cute!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next up we have the dynamic duo of Kiki Mirage & Myas Tucci. I’m pretty sure there is going to be some vogueing galore going on.

Myas says of herself:

Rising from the foam by the Napoli shore, Myas Tucci was Queen of Pop in Naples. Was, until the mafia infiltrated the music scene of her hometown, that is. Unable to secure gigs in Mob Central, Myas fled to Buenos Aires to rediscover her mojo. Sadly, from a goddess from the sea, Myas had been nothing but a washed up pop star. One day, she saw a splitting image of herself all glitzed up on Mamma Speziata; it was just that – a Mirage. Myas is fiercely determined to show this Kiki Mirage bitch on TV how it’s done and get all the lights and camera back on herself. Myas flies to Vancouver to meet the Keek…

Mya did not provide a picture for us...but I found one of her daddy on the Interweb

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, the talented and crunkin’ (is that even a word? did I say that right?) Kiki Mirage:

Kiki Mirage was born in the South Bronx to a Nuyorican familia and rose to the top soon after meeting Christina Leguilera, her soul sister.  Her beginnings included mixtapes and reggaeton collabo’s, and she has become one of the most recognizable East Coast faces on the West Coast.  Her influences include Remy Ma, Ivy Queen, Trina, and of course Nicki Minaj.  Expect to see more of this Queen of Rap Drag this summer, you heard?

She gonna cut you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See you all tonight…You know the drill:

ANZA CLUB – 3 W. 8th Ave

with pleasure, MADAME MAE I!

Posted by mkushnir on March 3, 2011

so, one thursday night in december (on his birthday, nonetheless), mike and his friends found themselves down at the cobalt motor hotel for a night of punk burlesque and cheap liquor. (here’s the proof.)

little did they know that they would run into a firey, red-headed sexpot outside who wanted more than a light – she wanted a gig. on our stage. and we were more than glad to oblige…

Madame Mae I is one of Vancouver’s finest; a tiny little package with explosive energy, smoldering good looks, and a heart of gold; a fiery red-head with a fearless personality and “unbridled sexuality” (Penny Starr Jr, Burlesque Performer and Striptease Symposium founder).

Mae combines her professional dance background, creative madness, and playful personality with a powerful on-stage presence to wow audiences far and wide. Her acts range from classic striptease seduction to wonderfully quirky randomness to political performance art and everything in between.

Some of Madame Mae I’s career highlights to-date include her recent crowning as “Princess” and “Most Classic” in North Carolina’s Great Southern Exposure Burlesque Pageant, and performing in Las Vegas’s Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 2010, The Windy City Burlesque Festival 2010, and Vancouver’s International Burlesque Festival 2007, 2009, & 2010. She has also served on the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival Association Board of Directors for the last two years. Some very exciting performances are in Madame Mae I’s near future, including  Atlanta’s Southern Fried Burlesque Festival Pageant in mid-March, and the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival this May.

When Madame Mae I isn’t producing Burly-Q Benefit shows – events that raise money for various causes and organizations – she’s heating up the stages of Vancouver and beyond with a cheeky yet seductive style that is uniquely her own.

(that story of meeting her outside the cobalt? totally true. just ask her when you see her!)
and by the way, did i mention that this chick is SUPER FREAKING HOT?!?!
