Balena and Esme are THRILLED to return to the mug in the second installment of Jazz on Jackson!

Jazz originated in the Black communities of New Orleans in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with its roots in blues and ragtime. This truly "American" art form is an integral part of our history. Through improvisation, syncopated rhythms, an extended harmonic language, and distinct use of instrumental sounds, jazz creates a musical world that evokes deep passion, emotion, and excitement.

In recent years, jazz has been overlooked in the drag/burlesque world. So, we decided to curate a show paying homage to this incredible and varied art form. Join co-hosts Balena Canto and Esme Eventide along with two very special guests for this queer artist tribute, Jazz on Jackson!

This months guests are the incredible:
Rosey Hart

The Mug will be open at 7 pm for snacks and socializing, and the show will begin promptly at 8 pm.

The Painted Mug Cafe

The Painted Mug Cafe, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a new performance space, venue for rent, and (soon-to-be) full-service café with espresso bar. ‘The Mug’ was developed by a collaborative team of queer artists seeking to serve and empower our LGBTQIA+ community through ambitious programming made accessible—physically and digitally. The café is on track to be worker-owned, and we will reinvest in the QTPOC and disabled artists of our city by prioritizing a shared narrative in our programming. ‘The Mug’ is an intentional LGBTQIA+ performance space and designed to decenter drugs and alcohol.

We seek to provide opportunities for growth for our member-artists, including access to work, talent-incubation, and professional development. We believe a performance space for queer artists designed by queer artists is as empowering as it is unique.

For our neighbors, we seek to be an LGBTQIA+ affirming asset of the community with great coffee, and the venue chosen to host those personal milestone events that will become lifelong happy memories.
