Big, Juicy, Sausage Fest News!

Big news. Big. HUGE.

Almost as big as the hair.

Oh, you KNOW it! Kiki Roquette is coming to Sausage Fest!

Kiki Roquette is known as “Saskatoon herself” when it comes to drag. After being the most visible drag queen in Saskatoon over the last 5 years, her reputation enters the room before she does. Good thing? Bad thing? You decide…

She’s done every gig a drag queen can do, from countless fundraisers and charitable events to weddings and bachelorette parties—and of course her sold our shows at Divas. Now that she’s semi-retired, you won’t see her nearly as much. But she’s shaving the beard and coming out for this sausage party. She’s always been a big fan of sausage.

We have a sneaking suspicion some of you are big fans of sausage, too. If we’re right, then we’ll see you (and you’ll see an awful lot of us) at the show.

Next Weekend, at a Very Special Sausage Fest

We’re proud to present Marcel Petit’s short film Tomahawk Fever as part of our Sausage Fest celebration of masculinity.

Sexy – Not Sexy

This kind of looks like one of our troupes vinyl collection…

eleven-nineteen

While looking through bad album cover design (something I love to do) I noticed how some of the cover models must have thought how goddamn hot they looked or that the persona they chose for themselves was one of pure sex  and charisma and they just had to share it with the world. Some are just purely ill-conceived – what the monkey was Action Bronson trying to say w/ his LP Saab Stories? And goddamn it if I’m not tired of seeing Madonnas old crotch staring at me from the shelves. You just can’t say enough about former Dexy’s Midnight Runner front man and singer of 80’s staple “Come On Ilene – To Ra Aye” cross dressing LP My Beauty. Of course there’ll be LPs designed to shock “My Pussy Belongs to Daddy” and the wonderfully named Nigel Pepper Cock’s hit – Fresh White Reeboks Kicking Your Ass. PS – Vince Capretta…
