“After over a year of living on your small screens, we are pulling out all of the stops on this live show,” said Trixie Mattel. “You can expect spectacular musical numbers, a dazzling set, and impeccable timing from two of the most talented women in the world. Do I smell a Tony?”

Trixie And Katya Live is a parody homage to the classic female road trip comedies from the 90s to today.

From drag classics To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, to Crossroads and Barb and Star Go to Vista Del MarTrixie And Katya Live tells the story of two well-traveled women going out on the road together. Meta? Maybe. An outrageous, absurd, and comedic musical drag show spectacular? Definitely.

Trixie and Katya Live will redefine drag, theatre, and art. You may leave with more questions than answers, but one thing’s for sure: The world will never be the same.

Jawbreakers

The DJ-production drag duo known as Jawbreakers is asking people to take "Just a Taste" of their upcoming EP. That flavorful sample called "Boyfriend" is available now on digital platforms. If you're thinking, hey, didn't Ashlee Simpson have a song of the same name back in 2005? Yes, she did, but this version is a lot more club-friendly with an EDM edge.

In this case, Amunda, formerly of the Australian group Operator Please. The song dismisses its punk roots and evolves into a banger bop with dancefloor disco sass much like its producers.
