Watching a talent competition on TV just isn't the same. At 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20 at the Eureka Theater, Not Your Momma's Talent Show gives you the live experience ($15, $25 VIP). The whole thing benefits NorCal Oasis and its work helping and educating people with nontraditional gender and sexual identities and their communities.
Sarah Torres, Zeke Herrera, Tribal Oasis Bellydance, Steven Alcantar, April Showers and Kalehua have all thrown their hats and headdresses into the ring for singing, dancing, juggling, burlesque and who knows what else, since this thing is 18 and over. Do you know these people? Cheer them on (or chant for the hook) as they compete before the esteemed panel of judges, Mr. Humboldt (Eric Hall), Rutabaga Queen Glitterina and KSLG's Myles Cochrane, all of whom will offer feedback before crowning a champion. Grab wine or beer (or both — competition is stressful, and there's a cash prize on the line) from the lobby bar and settle in for performances, games and giveaways. Bring your mama.
