Smart bets: LGBT Night with Beth Sacks

Asheville’s LGBT Night event series may hop from venue to venue, but the goal remains constant: bringing a high-energy lineup with a big-city clubbing feel to Asheville’s LGBT community. An upcoming iteration, which serves as an after-party for the Blue Ridge Pride festival, kicks off with a kings-and-queens drag show featuring local talents Ashley Nicole Michaels, Harmony Blake and Victoria Grantty among others, plus Kenya Michaels of the TV series “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” DJ Eric Scott (the themed-night’s founder) and DJ Stratos (12-year music man at Scandals) will also perform before a headlining set by internationally acclaimed house artist Beth Sacks takes over the stage shortly after midnight. Asheville Music Hall hosts the 18+ event Saturday, Oct. 3, at 9 p.m. $15. Photo of Sacks courtesy of the artist
