The Dixie Chicks are touring the U.S. for the first time in a decade, and they will be jamming out in Tampa at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds August 19.

Just like *NSYNC, The Backstreet Boys, Blink 182 and The Spice Girls, the Dixie Chicks were a music group in the late ‘90s/early ‘00s that added a fun, youthful voice to their respective genres, but the Chicks did something that no other group at the time did and that very few musical acts are able to do: They appealed to everyone: men and women, young and old. They reached out to fans of country, rock, pop and everything in-between, and yes, they appealed to the LGBT crowd.

“I think that the Republican Party has been, you know, and I am not the first to say this, I have seen op-eds about it ad nauseam but it certainly makes sense that the Republican Party has been assembling this monster for a very long time with all of their covert racism and sexism and homophobia. And the list goes on and on with the things they want to control and help destroy. You know, rights of women, reproductive rights, the environment and healthcare and poverty and education and healthy eating initiatives. You know, the list is a thousand miles long. They got their monster, but their monster is also unpredictable, and they don’t know what he really is about. So it’s sort of the ultimate endgame for them.”

These are the words that opened my candid conversation with comedian Sandra Bernhard – she’s part of the zeitgeist, you know; fuck Madonna – and the rest of her genius can be witnessed on the pages herein. These are crazy times, rife with any kind of disdain you can muster in even your calmest moods. However, these, too, are amazing times. Bernhard joins a cornucopia of talented performers and concerned exhibitionists in taking Central Florida by storm this week. We would say a certain incorporated term, but for reasons those in the gay-pub business are all too familiar, we’ll just keep it to your Big Gay Weekend, your One Magical Weekend, your GayDayS, and play nice with everyone. And this year’s is going to be a trip.

It’s not just about having fun anymore.

For Cyndi Lauper, music runs deeper than her ‘80s-era eccentricities may have seemed to suggest. A collection of classics from the Great American Songbook, deep Memphis-based blues, the feel-good Broadway romp Kinky Boots, which won her a Tony in 2013 for best score – Lauper changes musical guises like she changes dye jobs.
