Many many years ago I took a trip to Olympia, Washington for the purpose of seeing the rock opera The Transfused. I stayed in Olympia for ten days and had a great time (The Transfused was awesome and Wynne Greenwood sat next to me during the show and offered me a stick of gum,) but the highlight of the trip was walking down some random street and seeing Rachel Carns, formerly of The Need, walking towards me toweling her wet hair, having just come from the local YMCA.

Ward, are going on a summer tour after a string of successful shows this year at Coachella and SXSW.  The tour will be in support of their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Volume Two, which debuted at number 6 on the Billboard Top 200.

Our writer Aurora Montgomery went to the Elvis Perkins in Dearland show at the Bell House in Brooklyn last week and fell madly in love with the band. (One member in particular.) Here is a review of the show that got Aurora so twitterpated: Elvis Perkins took the stage sans In Dearland (his accompanying band) and started strumming an acoustic guitar and singing quietly into his microphone. The room was dark, the crowd was quiet and transfixed; all eyes were forward and steady on Perkins and his sweet, sad lulling.

Tonight is the 34th annual Take Back the Night event, a nighttime vigil and march that takes place worldwide to shatter the silence surrounding sexual and physical violence against women.  In the United States, dozens of local Take Back the Nights will begin at 9pm (6pm PST), with ten locations holding special candlelight vigils to illuminate the darkness of abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault. Take Back the Night was first practiced in 1976 at the International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women in Brussels, Belgium.

Molly Ringwald has a new book out. It’s called Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family and Finding the Perfect Lipstick and though I haven’t read it the title alone kinda triggers my gag reflex. But she’s Molly Ringwald! Samantha Baker! Claire Standish! I will love her till the day I die so I don’t really care what she’s shilling, if Molly Ringwald is making an appearance, I will be there. Which is exactly what drew me (and seemingly everyone else at the bookstore) to the Barnes & Noble in Tribeca last night where the ’80s icon had a reading.

Over the last ten episodes, the ladies of RuPaul’s drag race made us laugh, made us cry, made us know fierce.  And while they learned from Ru, they taught us about teamwork, self-respect, and how to make your country outfit really transition with a rip-away skirt.  On Monday, a new drag superstar was born.  Tyra Sanchez was the controversial choice for queen of the queens, and below, she lets us know she’s here.  Work. Your hair looks GREAT.
