Trixie Mattel - What's In My Bag?

Singer, actor, comedian, and drag queen Trixie Mattel did some shopping recently at Amoeba Hollywood and kept us laughing throughout the entire What's In My Bag? interview. Trixie's '90s nostalgia was on full display, as was her wit, charm, and ability to recall countless movie lines. Not only that, but she talked about some of her favorite music and comedy records and shared the unexpected album that inspired her to start playing guitar.

Trixie Mattel first attracted notice as a contestant on season seven of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2015. She made a triumphant return during the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars, where she won the competition in the final lip sync battle. She also competed in 2018's RuPaul's Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular.

Outside of her Drag Race fame, Mattel has teamed up with fellow contestant Katya Zamolodchikova for the comedy web series UNHhhh and the Viceland program The Trixie & Katya Show. She has toured extensively with her comedy act, with her newest tour, "Now with Moving Parts" captured in the forthcoming documentary Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts. In 2017, she released the country-folk album Two Birds via ATO Records. One Stone was released the following year. (The two albums are available on one LP as Two Birds, One Stone.) She has named June Carter Cash and Dolly Parton as two of her greatest musical influences.

Peaches Christ Drag Show 'Return to Grey Gardens' Has L.A. Premiere

Posted by Billy Gil, March 28, 2014 04:02pm | Post a Comment

San Francisco drag luminary Peaches Christ and “Rupaul’s Drag Race” winner Jinkx Monsoon will star in the L.A. premiere of original drag show “Return to Grey Gardens” April 5 at Wilshire Ebell Theatre.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Regular tickets are $30 in advance or $35 the day of, while VIP tickets (which grant you a seat in the VIP section, a signed “Great Gardens” program and VIP entrance at the door) are $100 in advance, $105 the day of. Get all tickets here.

TIP: If you sign up for Peaches Christ’s fanclub, you get a code for $2 off tickets. You can sign up here.

The show, which is written and directed by Peaches Christ, parodies the Maysles’ documentary Grey Gardens, about Edith Beale (Little Edie) and her mother (Big Edie), eccentric relatives of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy who bicker and live surreal lives in virtual isolation and let their house fall into disarray. The drag show is set 40 years in the future, documenting the lives of an aging drag mother and her bitter drag daughter who continue to perform for an empty house, delving into their backstories and future.

Guest stars at the show will include actor Thomas Dekker (All About Evil and Gregg Araki’s Kaboom) and L.A. drag star Squeaky Blonde. The show runs 90 minutes, with the Either Edie Costume Contest to follow, hosted by Peaches Christ and judged by Jinkx Monsoon. Audience members are invited to dress up as either Little Edie or Big Edie, so find your best silk scarf and fur coat and join in!
