Gee Pee at da Ess Exxx
It's like Where's Waldo, but this time it's two dykes, one sporting government-issue black-rimmed specs, the other, a floppy rat tail tipped in blond. Find us. Tap us on the shoulder, shake a hand, buy a drink (or three), and toast to all the good times to be had. We're here. We're queer. We're going to a festival.

At least that's the plan. Things change. Lines suck, showcases shock and surprise. Boy, will those pedi-cabs make a killing, back and forth, all around Downtown we go. Here's the dish, where we think we're going, which acts tickle our fancy … and other parts.

Here's where one of us (and maybe the other of us) might just be for the Music Festival part. Come join the fun.
