One of Australia's leading exports, Kylie Minogue is on par with Madonna pretty much everywhere but in America, where she's more of a curiosity -- better known than Vegemite, but almost as foreign. That is, except among the gay community, and dance music fans in general. "It's been a weird level of success for me in the states, compared to other territories," Minogue recently told American reporters, with no trace of bitterness. In fact, she laughs it off. "Sometimes it feels like we're members of some secret society -- in the best possible way." You can be sure the local chapter of that secret society will be going crazy this Saturday night, when Minogue stops by the Patriot Center. Town Danceboutique's Ed Bailey will serve as DJ before Minogue takes the stage. Saturday, April 30, at 8 p.m. at the George Mason University's Patriot Center, 4500 Patriot Circle in Fairfax. Tickets are $55 to $125. Call 703-993-3000 or visit patriotcenter.com or 930.com.
