WKND UPDATE :: THE I WOKE UP LIKE THIS EDITION :: MARCH 20-23

If Lucille Ball and Ethel Merman 1. were alive and 2. arose one fine morning to find themselves fourth wave feminists, they would most likely be performing at the The Garage tonight in a two-woman comedic performance focusing on explanations of their Facebook statuses and explaining the merits of pre-breakdown self-care. But unfortunately Easter isn’t for a minute, and we’re not in charge of choosing resurrectees at any rate.

So thank Gaia for Kat Yoas and Ben McCoy! The two performance artists are staking their claim on minimalist, hilarious stage shows tonight with the premiere of the monthly “I Woke Up Like This.” They promise feminist laffs, which we like. To celebrate, we gave the reigns to this edition of Wknd Update to Yoas, whose selfie video prowess was established during the three months that Snapchat was popular among AHDM4U circles. She’s into the selfie form as the ultimate empowered art product — how else can you frame images of your own damn self as simply and easily? Below, Yoas explains your weekend’s best bets to varying degrees. We’ll see you at all of them xoxo
