If you'd like to perform, please contact Alexiis or email us at soon!

May 18: NO SHOWCASE—It’s Gay Pride Day in Long Beach and the parking is many times worse than usual! We’ve found it’s better to take this night off and prepare for the big Memorial Day weekend Shimmyshowcase. See you then!

Please allow time for parking to avoid missing any of the fun, so be sure to be at the coffee house well before 7:00 PM. We try not to start the show until everyone has settled with a tasty beverage.

We look forward to seeing you soon at the Sunday Shimmyshowcase!
