You Shook Me All Day Long

We always think about drag performers when we hear Gillian Welch's song "Barroom Girls." Especially the part that goes, "She tosses and turns because the sun is unkind." Because holy shit, when you're not sure if your tuck is tight enough, or whether your beard's growing through your foundation, or even of the quality of the foundation itself, the sun can be plenty unkind. These are the reasons to admire, not just love, the moxie of Daytime Realness, a tea dance in the sense that it occurs at teatime, but even better/worse, it's held outdoors on the Mission District bar's famous back patio. Heklina and Hard French's DJ Carnita present drag performances, lit by the sun, and dance sets, lit by the sun. Luckily there are bitchin' chicken and waffles to ease the pain/your health. One part of Welch's song is true here, though: "All of the colors go 'round in a swirl/ When you dance in the arms of the barroom girls."
