About the Event
Where are the women in the Castro? Right here at Divas & Drinks!
Join us for the latest edition of this monthly event for women, their friends, and allies, co-presented with the San Francisco Bay Times— the Largest Ever Gathering of Women's Music Stars at The Academy!
A veritable galaxy of Women's Music stars including Melanie DeMore, Shelley Doty, Barbara Higbie, Vickie Randle, Sharon Washington, and many others—as well as actress and stand-up comic Diane Amos—will be in the house to celebrate music legend Linda Tillery during her birthday month and return to performing after a health hiatus.
As the lead singer of the psychedelic rock band The Loading Zone in the 1960s, Tillery was at the heart of San Francisco's Summer of Love. She co-founded The Cultural Heritage Choir, performed with Santana & other greats, and much more.
Your emcee for the night—additionally celebrating the Bay Times Pride Parade contingent volunteers and participants—will be yet another legend, Donna Sachet! And after bringing her music to international dance floors, DJ Rockaway presented by Olivia Travel will make her Divas & Drinks return. Also back by popular demand will be the Bacardí team of mixologists spotlighting award-winning mocktails and custom cocktails to toast to Tillery!
The San Francisco Bay Times and The Academy SF are proud to support this event to benefit the healthcare needs of Linda Tillery. A raffle, live auction, and a collection of contributions of any amount will be included. For more information, please contact 415-601-2113 or Publisher@sfbaytimes.com
