Moving on from “Trannyshack,” the legendary punk rock drag show in SoMa for 12 years, impresario Heklina is opening her new club in what used to be the hot corner of the gay male club scene in the ’70s and ’80s. It was called Oasis and came complete with swimming pool, showers, and towels back then. She’s keeping that name and opening the new space on New Year’s Eve. Look for lots of drag shows including her new one, “Mother,” on January 17th. Heklina talks with Marilyn Pittman Thursday, December 25th at 7pm Pacific on kalw.org and 91.7fm.
