Alternative Drag Show Returns to Web House with Stacked Lineup for 'Decadance'

Halloween comes early and often for the outlandish, outrageous “patients” in the care of Shawn Benét’s MadHouse — an out-of-the-box series billed as “San Antonio’s newest monthly alternative drag show.”

Having recently served up a sinister smorgasbord of drag antics headlined by controversial queen James Majesty (runner-up on season two of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Search for the World’s Next Drag Supermonster), host Shawn Benét and partner in crime DJ Mr. Grim have assembled a stacked roster for “Decadance” — an “over-the-top, flamboyant-as-fuck, loud and proud night of alternative drag honoring the gayest things about our community!”

Benefiting the tradition-bucking Austin International Drag Festival (November 15-18), the evening promises “gay anthems blasting,” food and drink specials and unpredictable interpretations from nearly 20 performers — including MadHouse mother Shawn Benét, mainstays Miss Taint and Paradox Rei and newbies Giomara Bazaldua, Queen Squirtbox and the drag king troupe Los Mentirosos.

$3, Fri Aug 31, 10pm-2am, Web House, 320 Blanco Road, facebook.com/shawnbenetsmadhouse.
