Lucky’s has open drag auditions

Lucky’s Garage will hold open drag auditions for a new drag troupe and show, to be called Lucky’s La Cage. The auditions will be held in the form of a talent contest, during which winners will be selected by audience applause.

Finalists from the contest rounds will become permanent cast members of Lucky’s La Cage and will perform weekly Saturday night shows. The preliminary rounds begin Friday Nov. 3 at 11 p.m. and will continue each Friday during the month of November. The first official Lucky’s La Cage show will be Saturday, December 1.

“This is a bit of a turnaround for us,” said Tony Daniel, Lucky’s co-owner. “We hadn’t originally planned to do shows on a regular basis at Lucky’s. However, the feedback we’re getting from our customers overwhelmingly indicates that a show is what they really want.”

“But we’re Lucky’s,” he added with a grin, “So we’re going to do this a little differently than everyone else.”

The contest is open to anyone interested in performing with a drag troupe. Entertainers can be seasoned performers or amateurs. Audience members will then choose their favorite entertainers to join the cast, so performers are encouraged to bring their fan bases to support them.

“This is not just for serious drag entertainers and illusionists,” added Daniel. “We’re open to all kinds of entertainers for our show, including camp drag and drag kings. If you think you can wow a crowd, we want you on stage.”

“I’d love to include some camp drag,” said T. Allen Morgan, Lucky’s co-owner. “It’s not something you see very much of here in Nashville and I miss it from the clubs I used to frequent in L. A., Atlanta and San Francisco. And I’d also like to see different type of entertainers, including camp and comic performers. We have a chance to do something unique with this, and I hope we can accomplish that--but we want it to be fun most of all.”             

Lucky’s owners acknowledge that they have customers that like the current format as is and may be put off by the addition of a show. For this reason, they say, there will be no show on Friday nights.

Performers interested in competing should be prepared to perform two songs and need to provide their own music on CD. Performers should also come in costume and are encouraged to interact with the audience prior to performing. Registrants are encouraged to arrive early to secure a performance slot. A final line up will be set by 10:30 p.m. on the night of the contests. The contest is open to amateurs and entertainers not currently under contract for other shows.

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.
