2p Rock & Roll Sisters featuring local artists Tina Thornhill, Josie Lowder, Kyla Kruse, Gwen Harris and Patty Kniss

4pThe Brat Pack – “The 80s aren’t over till we say they are.” The Brat Pack has delivered happy 80s and beyond party goodness throughout this great land for Twenty Seven sweet years – that’s 250% the size of the Me Decade itself. The Brat Pack plays those never-ending hits so true to the originals that every once in a while a listener suspects lip-synching, so the band might have to treat them to a teensy little mistake just to set them straight!”

7:30p Designer Landscapes Drag Show Extravaganza – This year’s show features area title winners and an amazing special out of town guest! Title winners include Deanna Knight, J Estelllado Knight, Gardenia, Chad W. Knight, Anja Mann and from Texas, Liquor Mini!
