ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Slic is an experimental pop artist based in Brooklyn NY, raised in Miami, and originally from Caracas, Venezuela. Their music has been featured in The Fader and is on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Apple Music. When they are not in the studio trying to make the most unhinged synth line imaginable, they are putting together DIY shows with like-minded artists around NYC.
Kirt Gittens is a rapper and host based in Brooklyn NY. He can be found co-hosting and rapping in Rap Roulette, a monthly music comedy show at the Soho Playhouse.
Tanch is a comedian, actor, and drag king based in Brooklyn, NY. She has previously performed with both Queer & Now and Burlesque Apothecary under the moniker Mr. Alan Wrench.
Melissabeth is a flirtatious hairy beary mermaid longing to return to her ocean home. While washed ashore, she channels this longing—like so many gay boys turned mermaids—into being a vessel for the divas of past, present, and future. Lovingly referred to as “the woman director” and “the bearded Barbra Streisand,” Melissabeth is here to dream big, tug at your heartstrings, and support her fellow queer babies.
Melissabeth is the drag persona of theater and performance artist Garrett Sager (he/they)—she lets Garrett be naughty and nautical, embody the gay faggotry he used to squelch, and find beauty in the new feminine. ~ ~ ~ A.K.A. Sophie Dishwater: sewer fairy-turned-socialite. RATS!
Maria Milagros is The Boricua Thunder of burlesque! A diva with an ass that jiggles like flan, Milagros has macheted her way to the top with a coqui song in her heart every step of the way. After just two short years of doing burlesque professionally she has been featured with Queer & Now, EMERGENYC, Burlesque Apothecary, Wink and a Smile Productions, That’s Camp Burlesque, Hubba Dubba Burlesque, Sabor Burlesque Revue, Providence Fringe Festival, The Tank NYC, House of Yes, the Ohio Burlesque Festival, and in Bustle Magazine.
Cochina Divina is a drag and burlesque artist based in Brooklyn. A teta connoisseur, you can find them doing drag, burlesque, or kittening and gogoing all over the city.
