April 24: Regie Cabico!

So there we were, minding our own business, having a perfectly local February Queer Open Mic, when out of nowhere a wild-haired boy from DC adds himself to the last spot on the sign-up list and is so incredibly charming and talented that he steals the entire freaking show. You can just imagine: our feature was devastated. Our community, violated. And our talent bookings for April, resolved.

Please welcome back to the Bay Area… the man who gave us all chocolate and got more phone numbers at the end of the night than any of us locals can rake in at the Trans March, Dyke March, and Pride Parade combined…. REGIE CABICO!
