A memorial for Ron Lanza, the queer impresario who founded Valencia Rose Cafe and Josie’s Cabaret and Juice Joint, has been set for Saturday, June 15 at El Rio.

Lanza died of colon cancer April 9.

The memorial starts at 11am and runs to 1pm. It’s an open mic; come tell a story. And expect to hear some crazy ones; he had a long and interesting life.
