During the Fifth Annual SOME THING Tiara Sensation Pageant, our contestants will show their talents and abilities using their artistry to woo the audience and persuade the judges to crown one of them the next Tiara Sensation of San Francisco.

SOME THING is a weekly party that allows us to explore, open, and redefine drag performance through traditional lipsynch, dance, livesinging, vaudevillian antics, and the creation of new personas (regardless of race, gender, or color).

Using guitar effect processors and multiple looping pedals as her tools, Lien performs dynamic and emotive concerts as she constructs compositions layer by layer for her audiences, creating hybrid music and expressive performance art.
