Jan. 14th - BAD TASTE (SEEKING: Raffle Donations)

BadTaste poster final

It's rude...it's vulgar...it's obscene…IT’S BAD TASTE...and you know you want some.

Get down at a party so bad, you won’t want to be good. Enjoy bitchin’ live music, derelict drag, and a risqué raffle of must have items benefiting Austin PrEP Project. The night is hosted by the Dame of Bad Taste herself, CupCake.

This ain’t your Daddy’s kind of disco. Unless your Daddy is the love child of David Lynch and Dirk Digler. Say Whaaat? Live music by Big Bill, Total Unicorn, Mom Jeans and The Cuckooos. Down, out and dirty performances by Kristie Korpis, Honey St. Claire, Louisianna Purchase, and Nadine Hughes.


Have you been known to bump and grind? Are you a rough and tumble rider of the bedroom rodeo? Or do you just wanna know the status of your apparatus? AIDS Services of Austin ‘s Mobile Testing Van will be on site from 8pm-12amdoing rapid STD screenings.


Dress like a dream, or come plain jane and let The Braid Babe and Face Paintress Ruth Mendez add your finishing touches for the night.


Wet your appetite like the class you are, with Garbo's Lobster eats on the patio. Mini lobster rolls, kettle chips and clam chowder - say it - CHOWDAH!



Get you a raffle ticket for just $5 (or 5 tickets for $20) for your big chance to win some sweet, some sexy and some downright filthy tricks and treats. All funds raised go directly to Austin PrEP Project whose mission is to increase awareness, access, and adherence to HIV prevention strategies by educating the community, providing medical care, and conducting public health research and advocacy.


Although the theme of the event is BAD TASTE - so far the donations have been far from that.  On the list so far is a fun play basket from Forbidden Fruit, art from Chet Art, jewelry from a couple of local artists, as well as a few gift certificates from WINK and other local eateries.

BAD TASTE is currently seeking items and services that scream what their name implies. Do you dabble in anything artsy, edgy and just ever so slightly dirty? DONATE! Smaller items will be grouped together in themed baskets with titles like 'Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll'.

They are also still seeking a massive raffle item - since Austin is filled with entrepreneurs, they would love to have something like a month free rent at a work-shared space (or something along those lines).

Contact Gayle at gayle@channelthree.co with any questions or for more information on donation drop off/pick up.

Those that donate will also receive one guest list spot as well as all of the free condoms and lube you'll ever need - The Q is bringing BOXES of them! ;)
