Thursday To-Do: Skaggs and Draggs


8 p.m., UBU. $5.

It's an appropriate fund-raiser for a neighborhood whose chosen acronym shares the name of a hallucinogenic drug in “Brave New World.” To raise money for its annual Mardi Gras parade, SoMa (that's Southside Main Street) has recruited a host of neighborhood celebrities to strut their stuff in drag. Maybe you know some of them: Danny Sullivan of the Quapaw Home and Garden Club; Lee Fleming, Little Rock emergency room doctor; Dana Minton, treasurer of SoMa; Maggie Henson, owner of Midtown Billiards; Jim King, referee extraordinaire of the Roller Derby Girls; Stephanie Richards, the reigning Miss Gay Arkansas; Chlamydia Champagne, neighborhood celebrity; Linda Tanner, former Miss Legs Arkansas, and Gerald Turner, of Little Rock Housing Authority. UBU is located at 823 Capitol Ave.
