Drag out: La JohnJoseph cancels shows

The HOT! Festival just lost one of its most distinctive flames with the announcement that the gender-casual English raconteur and singer La JohnJoseph, who was scheduled to perform two shows in New York this week, has had to pull out before coming. It seems there has been some problem vis-à-vis a visa.
We are disappointed with this news, as we had been looking forward to seeing the stylish androgyne in a full new show. La JohnJoseph’s Saturday slot at Dixon Place at 8pm will be sublet by Lavinia Co-Op, Glenn Marla and Laryssa Husiak; and his half of a July 30 double bill with Joseph Keckler at the New Museum will be occupied by the rising young performer and zine eroticist Max Steele. Good substitutes all, but we look forward to seeing La JohnJoseph set up camp on our shores again soon.
