Extreme estrogen exposure guaranteed: Hot babes of all shapes, sizes, sexual orientations, and performance styles will dominate the Metro stage this Saturday when Big Goddess Pow Wow II comes looking for converts. Originally staged as an all-girl show at the Edge of the Lookingglass in 1989, it sprang from the head of performance artist/actor Paula Killen of Music Kills a Memory fame. Joining her will be a bevy of vixens, including performance poet Lisa Buscani, who last wowed the Metro crowd in Circa '92, performance artist Marcia Wilkie, performance poet Cindy Salach, dadaist comic Cheryl Trykv, and actor Tanya White. Alexandra Billings will emcee. The Texas Rubles--local Indigo-Girls-with-a-brain--will be on hand, as will the Disgraces. "The Disgraces are a group of biker chicks whove known each other since high school," says Killen of the alter egos she's dreamed up for all the women in the show. "The Disgraces were founded with the idea that all the goddess archetypes were right there in your hometown." Metro, 3730 N. Clark, 549-0203. Saturday, September 26, 9 PM. $10.
