I’m guessing Bobby Short won’t be on hand for tonight’s “Rainbow Room”if only because the subtitle for the event is “A Lesbian and Gay Cabaret Evening.” Presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society and Dance Place, this showcase features filmmaker and performance artist Michelle Parkerson, Pomo Afro Homo Djola Branner, Obie-winning actor/construction worker Marty Pottenger, and Florida satirist Terry Galloway (The Mickey Faust Club). At 8 p.m. tonight & tomorrow and 7 p.m. Sunday at Dance Place, 3225 8th St. NE. $15. (202) 269-1600. (Trey Graham)
