Austin PRIDE 2016 Celebration
QUEER MF, Austin’s first LGBT Pride weekend music festival, will take place Saturday, August 27 at the Empire Control Room and Garage.
It’ll be a two-stage event, on Empire’s outside garage and patio. Music starts at 8pm.
Advance tickets come with a free QUEER MF t-shirt or pair of tighty whities: http://bit.ly/QUEERMF
QUEER MF is designed to be an interactive, diverse event. There’ll be a little something for everyone with rock bands, DJs, throwdowns on the dance floor, even a karaoke contest.
Main events will be:
– A “Fallen Queeroes” Prince & Bowie dance party tribute by DJ Supafly
– A “Lip Sync for Your Life” karaoke contest with prizes for gayest song, best costume, and most serious strut.
– Live performances by sexy shoegaze band the Please Please Me; huge-voiced songstress Jane Ellen Bryant; Vs. chamber pop; and looping phenom Jenuine Cello.
Please spread the word. Help us spread the love, use music to bring people together, and celebrate those who aren’t often showcased on Austin’s legendary Red River St. Money from drink specials will go to ALLGO, a queer person of color group in Austin.
