Celebrate Pride with Music & Laughs at Feinstein’s In S.F.

by Chris Narloch

There are so many gay-friendly shows coming to Feinstein’s at the Nikko in San Francisco that I hardly know where to begin.

In June alone, you can celebrate Pride with headliners such as Katya Smirnoff Skyy, Spencer Day, Lorna Luft, and Marga Gomez.

Read on for details about all four of those shows.

Katya Smirnoff Skyy
Join the ‘countess’ on a voyage through operatic disco cabaret, as she recreates her infamous final performance at the legendary Continental Baths, forty years later.

With songs ranging from Jule Styne to Donna Summer, this cabaret queen offers something for everyone. Smirnoff Skyy will take you back to a time when the boys were beautiful, the drinks flowed freely and love was everywhere to be found.

Katya Smirnoff Skyy performs at Feinstein’s on June 15.

Spencer Day
Widely regarded for his trademark honey baritone voice and original songs that blend lovely melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements, Spencer Day has wooed audiences at venues all over the U.S., including Birdland, Town Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center and Tanglewood Music Center.

Day has released half a dozen CDs including Vagabond and Daybreak, and his upcoming album, Angel City, will be out later this year. During his return to Feinstein’s at the Nikko,

Day will sing selections from throughout his recording career and will explore his roots in the Great American songbook.

Spencer Day performs at Feinstein’s June 16-17.

Marga Gomez
With a comic style The New York Times called “deliciously cheeky and incendiary,” Marga Gomez is a GLAAD Award winner and was named “Best Bay Area Comedian” by SF Weekly, Bay Area Reporter and The SF Bay Guardian.

Robin Williams called Gomez “amazing… a lesbian Lenny Bruce.” Her comedy has been featured on HBO, LOGO, Showtime, Comedy Central and PBS.

She is also the author/performer of twelve solo plays, which have been presented Off-Broadway, nationally and internationally.

Marga Gomez performs at Feinstein’s on June 21.

Lorna Luft
Lorna Luft, daughter of legendary entertainer Judy Garland, returns to Feinstein’s at the Nikko to remind us all of the connection between her mother’s funeral on June 27, 1969 and the Stonewall riots that began in the early hours of June 28, 1969.

Luft’s own theatrical career has included roles on Broadway and in national tours, including most recently Irving Berlin’s White Christmas.
Lorna Luft performs at Feinstein’s on Pride Weekend, June 23-24.
