Retro Bloodbath

Billed as “San Antonio’s newest monthly alternative drag show,” Shawn Benét’s MadHouse returns to Web House for a Retro Bloodbath — a gory affair headlined by James Majesty, the controversial runner-up on season two of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Search for the World’s Next Drag Supermonster (a series that’s been likened to a “rowdy, filthy alternative to RuPaul’s Drag Race”). In January, The Stranger reported on some of the “countless nasty gossip surrounding” Seattle-based Majesty — including that “Redditers vehemently spread the rumor that she fucked her porn star brother” Taylor Reign and therefore got pegged as “the incest one” on Dragula. Speaking to Out magazine this summer about the release of Pervert (a debut album inspired by “horny teenage angst”), the outlandish, outspoken, sex-positive performer explained that “music was [her] escape growing up.” The title track, she said, “takes a comical look at [her] past of being a sex worker,” and she related adolescent struggles to “the sounds of queer-punk artists, drag queens and porn.” Several of those disciplines are destined to collide in Majesty’s forthcoming endeavors aiming to “mix the drag and porn worlds together to help educate more queer youth on safe sex.” Inviting guests to don their “best club-kid attire,” Majesty’s San Antonio appearance features performances by “long-term MadHouse patients” Shawn Benét, Paradox Rei, Mystere Lopez, Nova Cain, Britni Lebosavich, Ms. Anne Thrope and The Puberty Sisters, plus “new arrivals” Kooder Parker, Gena Cyde, Mehgan D. Lux, Demonica St. Nick and Paris Ite.

“Comfort Cafe is one of my favorite spots in San Antonio! I highly recommend joining the Yelp Waitlist early before you head over, because it's such a popular place for brunch on the weekends… The pancakes are huge but they are so fluffy and tasty… Don't skip out on the hashbrown casserole either, I mean what's better than potato, cheese, and bacon?” - Elite Yelper Sarah G
