Check the weave, lacquer the lids, and strap on those cha cha heels! Pageant queens, gender-f*ckers, bearded ladies, fish—however you DO drag, however you LOVE drag—come out and FLAUNT IT.
You know what I don't like? Ominous corporations and riot-like surging mobs. You know what I do like? Small businesses that genuinely care about their customers. My suggestion is to take your Black Friday feet to Capitol Hill where you can get crazy deals like 25% off one regularly priced item at Red Light Vintage, guitar/acoustic/bass set-up gift certificates discounted to $60/$70/$75 at High Voltage Music Store, and 10% off your entire purchase at Wall of Sound. Pick up the Shop Local - Shop The Hill leaflet around town or check out Capitolhillseattle.com/shopthehill for a list of local merchants and get great deals on your holiday shopping November 23rd-25th!

On Friday I went on down to Belltown for the Ariel Pink & Friends Decibel showcase. I missed BODYGUARD, but got there just in time for DaM-FunK, which was pretty DaM boring (I KNOW what the little hat he puts on the 'a' means, I'm making that joke either way HA HA). He started off with some promising funkiness, but it turned out to be just repetitive repetitiveness forever, eternally, without end, etc. There WAS a keytar involved though, which did add some points! Always points for keytars!
I saw Ariel Pink having a cigarette outside before his show and really wanted to crack his back and give him some posture tips like an overbearing aunt—"You're so cute! You just need to stand up straight! You're going to be hunched over by the time you're 50!"
