Retro Game Show Night Presents Sassword

(Doors at 6pm, show at 7pm; event ends around 9pm)

Retro Game Show Night is hosted by Tempest DuJour, the “Delicate Flower of the Desert.” She is Tucson’s (and possibly Arizona’s) largest drag queen and has a blazing wit that’s just as big as she is. At RGSN, we play vintage television game shows with special “celebrity” guests and real contestants from the audience. This month, we’re playing Sassword – this is definitely not your grandma’s game show!

(Doors at 7pm, Free, 21+)

Los Angeles-band Moaning is the abrasive post-punk trio comprised of Sean Solomon, Pascal Stevenson, and Andrew MacKelvie. From the sentimental to catastrophic, hiding meek and introspective lyrics within powerful droning dance songs, the music Moaning makes also gives sonic nods to some of the band’s musical heroes like New Order, Broadcast, and Slowdive. Catch the trio at Club Congress, with support to be announced!


Thu 28 Dec


(Doors at 7pm, $5, 21+)

RENDEZVOUS, a collective of friends who have played together in bands both past and present, (Kool Shades, Steff and the Articles, Lucky Devils Band) convene every year to cover some of their favorite artists. Either recreating a song verbatim or doing their own version, RENDEZVOUS’ repertoire spans from jazz to reggae to EDM and will guarantee to get you moving.

w/ Karima Walker (7pm, $10, 21+)

Club Congress is thrilled to welcome back Singer-Songwriter, Violinist, and Disibility Activist Gaelynn Lea! Winner of NPR’s 2016 Tiny Desk Contest, her haunting ambient-inflected compositions and experimental takes on traditional fiddle music have been likened to Joanna Newsom and Karen Dolton, but her unmistakable voice and melodic sensibility is something entirely her own. Don’t miss this one!

(6PM, $17-$22, 21+)

“Slaid Cleaves may be the Americana genre’s most underappreciated songwriter.” With a knack for giving breath to perpetually down-on-their-luck characters on albums like 2000’s excellent Broke Down, the Austin by way of Maine artist evokes writers from GUY CLARK to TOM PETTY, crafting detailed portraits of barflies, drifters and day laborers. Join Club Congress and Rhythm & Roots in co-hosting a master storyteller at 191 Toole!
