Daytime Realness

Third Sunday of every month, 3 p.m.
El Rio 3158 Mission, San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights

, , , , , ,
We always think about drag performers when we hear Gillian Welch's song "Barroom Girls." Especially the part that goes, "She tosses and turns because the sun is unkind." Because holy shit, when you're not sure if your tuck is tight enough, or whether your beard's growing through your foundation, or even of the quality of the foundation itself, the sun can be plenty unkind. These are the reasons to admire, not just love, the moxie of Daytime Realness, a tea dance in the sense that it occurs at teatime, but even better/worse, it's held outdoors on the Mission District bar's famous back patio. Heklina and Hard French's DJ Carnita present drag performances, lit by the sun, and dance sets, lit by the sun. Luckily there are bitchin' chicken and waffles to ease the pain/your health. One part of Welch's song is true here, though: "All of the colors go 'round in a swirl/ When you dance in the arms of the barroom girls." 415-282-3325

Weekends are for amateurs — the really good stuff happens during the week. Well, that might be a little hyperbolic, but it's certainly true in the case of High Fantasy. Going on for several years now, the weekly Tuesday night party at Aunt Charlie's is your midweek destination for a dose of high-concept gender-bending insanity. Madcap promoters Myles Cooper and Vivian Baron host an evening of cheap drinking, dancing, and drag to an impeccably selected soundtrack of underground house and disco classics. Its Facebook page declares, "It's everything you want...." And, for the low price of $5 (or less), it probably is. 415-441-2922
