Special Ladies at Re-Bar a special evening

by James Whitely - SGN Contributing Writer

Special Ladies
September 17
Re-bar


Re-bar, just off the hill, is a gem. I wanted to learn more about what goes on at the club that will soon be celebrating its 20th anniversary next Valentine's Day, yet still remains largely undiscovered by some parts of the community. So, jaunting down across I-5 on September 17, I attended "Special Ladies" at the Re-bar.

"It's really different every night, because we have so many different shows," said Kerstin Graudins, a bar manager that has worked at Re-bar for 13 years and was certainly the most special lady of the night.

Graudins was entirely behind Special Ladies, an art opening featuring silkscreen prints by Graudins depicting local and well-known drag queens who have performed at Re-bar during her time there.

"I wanted to sort of consummate my being here for so long. I asked everyone to give me a photo of them to silkscreen, and then got them to come out and perform."

The drag queens who couldn't make it for the opening made video appearances throughout the night.

Graudins wanted to acknowledge Re-bar and the performers specifically. "I didn't think anyone would agree to let me use their images, but it's just been incredible how supportive everyone has been," Graudins told SGN.

The locally focused Graudins, who teaches silkscreening at the Vera Project, spent about five months on the project. The prints have been on display since August 25, and go down at the end of September. The prints are selling for $100 each, and are still available.

Special Ladies, which was hosted by Ade and Jackie Hell, began with - of all things - bingo. However, clearly disinterested since no one was winning, the bingo hosts began throwing the prizes at patrons so that the drag show could begin.

After the show, a well-attended dance party began, spun by DJ Girth and DJ Conquergood, friends of Graudins' who offered their services for her special night.

Re-bar hosts parties like Bacon Strip with Sylvia O'Stayformore, Flammable!, and even a roller disco.
