World of Wonder
Since its 2012 premiere at the Bonham Exchange, the Rey Lopez Birthday Bash has never failed to bring the top performers from RuPaul’s Drag Race to the Alamo City. This year’s extravaganza pairs established fan favorites like season three alum Raja with newcomers such as Naomi Smalls and Valentina. Raven and Jujubee (aka Team Rujubee) and Puerto Rican beauties Yara Sofia and Jessica Wild all make the cut along with choreographer/dancer/weed enthusiast Laganja Estranja and Tatianna — fresh off a star turn on season two of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars. With the reality show’s increasing popularity and its recent move to VH1, it’s hard to see an end in sight for these gender-bending, boundary-pushing queens. Before last year’s bash, Lopez told us, “I plan to go as long as I can.” If previous years are any clue, you can expect to see plenty of extreme lip-synching, death drops ... and perhaps a lap dance or two. Make sure to arrive early for the red carpet preview and fan mixer. $33-$55, red carpet and fan mixer at 8pm, show at 9:30pm Fri, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, reylopezentertainment.com. — MA
