Sunday - SLOW DRAG @ TREFPUNT
"A lazy Sunday evening after so much learning and partying?
Temper all the emotions or just lighten them up! It is slow, it is close, its shhhhh...and it's sensual...it's slow drag night"
We start the evening with a dazzling opening show and invite you afterwards with a snowball to dance to the crying' hymns of Billie Holiday and others. Feel blue and dance the night away..."
