A while back, I posted about some of the things I have never done during my time as a student at Concordia. One of those things was that I have never been to Cornstock. Well, Saturday night was Cornstock and I was not present there. So I’m four for four! Instead, I accompanied my friend Jimmy to East Grand Forks as he performed in Janessa Jaye Champagne’s Drag Warz.
This is a fantastic, out of the ordinary way to run a drag show. None of the performers knew how many songs they were performing or exactly which songs they were performing. Instead, they all spun a big wheel and whatever song it landed on was the song they had to perform. There were tons of twists and turns, like if it lands on another performer’s name they would have to perform the song as well.
There were also fun “chance cards,” such as the Girl Power card. If you landed on that card, you had extra time to prepare your performance while the other queens performed the Spice Girls! I have never seen a drag show quite like this. Plus, Janessa Jaye Champagne is such a treat to watch. I had a great time with Jimmy (Androgyna Galaxy) in East Grand Forks! Take that, Cornstock.
