The call of the wild begins at 7 pm with exhibition viewing and cocktails. Joslyn’s Café Durham will be open, offering small plate selections for purchase throughout the evening.

At 8 pm drag entertainers prowl the stage showing off their most fierce glitz and glam. Emcee is Joe DeSanti; featured drag entertainers are Tharin Crase, Destiny, Giselle Jacobs, Sophia Kennedy, Veronica Kennedy, Aubrey Savage, and Matthew Steele.

Following the runway show, all party animals take to the dance floor for a roaring good time with lowercase sounds' Ben Jones and Très Johnson. Ben plays deep, tech, and progressive house, as well as classic house tunes, which hooked him years ago while living in his native London. Playing an array of sounds, Très, the founder of lowercasesounds.com, weaves together ambient, trip hop, downtempo, deep house, house music, and techno.
