Local drag phenom Galactica (a.k.a. the "pink-haired diva" a.k.a. Jeffrey Johnson) will preview her upcoming show with her band Capt. Satellite (a.k.a. musical director Christopher Wingert) and the Escape Pods (a.k.a. the Escape Pods). Entitled Rapture! and billed as "the only show of its kind in the Washington, D.C. area," the cabaret includes a hodgepodge of songs by the likes of Peggy Lee, the Rolling Stones, Dolly Parton, No Doubt, Eddie Cantor, Harold Arlen, even Captain and Tennille. Certainly sounds unique. The full show takes place the weekend of May 21, but an "open rehearsal" is set for Monday, May 9, at 7:30 p.m. Black Fox Lounge, 1723 Connecticut Ave. NW. Tickets are $10. Call 202-483-1723 or visit blackfoxlounge.com.
