The last showcase was such a success that El Rio invited us back and is giving us the entire patio! Our audience will
be much more comfortable and much less squished this time.
Come see a musical showcase of The Red Shades: A Trans Superhero Rock Opera. This is a rare opportunity to check out this epic work in progress. A 7-piece band will be playing through a selection of songs. There will be opportunities for the audience to give feedback.
The story follows a teenage trans girl, Ida, who unlocks her super powers after experiencing the traumas of small-town life in the sixties. Eventually, she runs away and joins a gang of trans super heroes squatting in the Tenderloin. They use magic collectively to defend the community against the police and other enemies of their liberation.
