This Saturday evening at The Deep End, ICON a Celebration of Rihanna + Sia will put on one of the best recurring entertainment shows in all of Atlanta. If you haven’t heard, this is a dance party and features performances to celebrity and music inspirations such as Lady Gaga, Janet + Michael Jackson, Madonna, Beyonce, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, to name a few.
Each month, The Deep End hosts the show and a rotating cast of performers put on a dazzling display of lip-syncing, dancing, aerial arts, burlesque, and sickening fashion to capture the essence of their inspirations as the music plays. This September, the show is paying homage to Rihanna and Sia–two of the fiercest ladies in the music scene today! Last month was a celebration of Disco and it was AMAZING!
If that’s not reason enough to come to The Deep End and see ICON then let me tell you the other reason to pull the drapes off the windows and sew yourself a cocktail dress: Shea Coulee of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10! That’s right, Shea Couleé will be a featured performer in Saturday night’s event. If you haven’t been keeping tabs on Shea, she has skyrocketed on both social media and live performances worldwide since her appearance on RPDR. Shea is one of a few RDPD former contestants that have and will be appearing in WUSSY Magazine events around town.
Amongst the talented cast of local performers featured this month are Michael Robinson, Brigitte Bidet, Diego Serna, Dotte Com, T-Rex, Bella Dorado, PhaeMonae, and Porter Grubbs. But wait there’s more! DJ La Superior of La Choloteca will be spinning uplifting tunes for the crowd and there’s even a photo booth by Savana Ogburn. Every ICON performance is an amazing journey in expression and creativity that captures the BEST of Atlanta and the wonderful LGBTQIA community it possesses.To say “it gave/gives me life” would be understatement–I hope you can make it out Saturday night to celebrate the city and its people that inspire us to come together. Incredibly straight people-friendly and diversity is highly encouraged at ICON.
