After 5 successful years of bringing innovative, edgy dance shows and art events to the I-Drive area, DRIP will be closing its I-Drive location to focus on new projects.

 

Your last chance to see DRIP on I-Drive is on January 12, 13, 19 (All Ages), 20, 26, and 27, 2018.

 

DRIP shows are usually restricted to 18+ but they will open the Friday, January 19 show up to all ages as long as people under 18 are accompanied by a guardian. The All Ages show will remain edgy and will be the same show experience as the others.

 

This is a great time to come out to DRIP if you’ve always wanted to go or if you are a repeat guest who wants to come one last time. Discounted tickets will be available in January for the remaining shows. Guests can get $25 general admission tickets (regularly $44) with promo code: FINALSPLASH.

 

For tickets and to join DRIP’s email list to stay in the loop of future projects, visit DRIP’s website at www.ILoveDRIP.com.

 

 

“Closing this location is bittersweet but exciting for our team. We put a huge amount of passion into everything created in that space and have amazing memories from the team interacting with the guests. We had terrific experiences over the last 5 years and are eager to re-focus and inject our creativity into the next project.” explains DRIP founder and creative director Jessica Mariko. “We appreciate our fans and are looking forwards to playing with them again soon.”

 

Since DRIP opened their International Drive location, they have produced over 700 shows, artistic events, concerts, festivals, fashion shows, private parties and corporate events. Experiences in the DRIP venue have included a super-hero show during the Megacon Convention, The Blind Date experience for couples during Valentine’s Day, the Underground Vampire Bar experience in October, Gay Days events, Local Art Night, BASE Body Painting Art Events, and many more. DRIP has also been commissioned to develop creative experiences for companies such as Timex, Siemens, L’Oreal, Wrestlemania, and Kawasaki.

Caitlyn Jenner’s emotional ESPY Awards acceptance speech

As you may have heard, Caitlyn Jenner accepted ESPN’s ESPY Arthur Ashe Courage Award last night. “The last few months have been a whirlwind of experiences and emotions,” she said, following a 15 minute tribute video that highlighted Jenner’s former career as an Olympic champion.

“I had never met a trans person [before],” she said after making a few jokes about the fashion police coming after her Versace dress.

But Jenner’s tone turned fairly and rightfully serious shortly thereafter, highlighting suicide rates and suicide stories from the trans community. She spoke of the responsibility of the spotlight and the responsibility of the media in highlighting “a very simple idea: accepting people for who they are.” It’s pretty amazing to see this in our times.

We’ve stood up to discrimination in its ugliest forms, been patient as friends and representatives evolved, and discovered a real—almost cocky—pride in our uniqueness. And we’ve laughed with, and been inspired by, legends of this unique time in history.
