DOLLY FEST by Mouth Radio at the Museum of Human Achievement, August 3, 2019
DOLLY FEST 2019!
MouthRadio presents Dolly Fest 2019, a performance and party dedicated to Our Lady of titties and rhinestones, Dolly Parton.
DOLLY fest kicks off at 8:00pm with a staged reading of a play titled Songs for Drunk Cowboys Who May Also Be Women. An Anti-Musical. (For Fools, Only). This new play by Sarah Loucks follows wannabe country singer Cheyenne and her chihuahua, Dolly Parton, on a country music tour dripping in Dr. Pepper and heartbreak. A camp philosophical remix, Songs for Drunk Cowboys examines gender and desire using the the melodramatic tropes of country music and the legacy of Dolly Parton.
Following the staged reading is KILL JOLENE: A KARAOKE PLAY. A Dolly Parton song cycle featuring the talents of 20 local Austin artists, KILL JOLENE: A KARAOKE PLAY explores Dolly’s discography through a variety of artistic mediums from dance to video to drag performance.
The night will close out with a DJ set by Boi Orbison of Neon Rainbows: 90s Country Night.
Tickets are $10-$20 on a sliding scale. Reserve tickets here: www.sarahloucks.space
