Lady Shabazz show shakes up 10th & Piedmont

Add this share

When you think of Sunday drag on 10th Street, you didn’t used to think of 10th & Piedmont. Until now. The venue let Lady Shabazz take the concept and blow the windows open for its new Flashback Showgirls.

The weekly Sunday night show offers a taste of something new for 10th & Piedmont, both the street corner and the venue. It's a heaping helping of gay Atlanta’s favorite real-girl-drag-queen Shabazz (top photo, right) at the helm with several other fabulous faces in her cast. Throw in some sexy guests getting into the action, and the new show could be the next big thing.

And what’s in a name? Flashback Showgirls takes you back in time to visit decades past. Check in each Sunday to see what – and when – they have in store. 10th & Piedmont is busy getting in the swing since the restaurant-bar catering to a mostly gay clientele opened in December. It's making a play for monthly lesbian nightlife, has done movie Tuesdays and hosted big gay art openings, just to name a few popular events.
