Text:Not sure what to do over the next few days? Never fear! Here's's guide to Queen's Birthday Weekend. Friday 4 June Glee Returns! Gleeks rejoice! Friday night marks the return of the campest TV show in town, Glee. But can it get any camper? Yes it can. The nine further episodes in the first season of the hit musical feature Madonna and Lady Gaga tributes, while Sue Sylvester is caught getting 'Physical' with Olivia Newton John. This week's episode is centred on the endless back and forth between Finn and Rachel, after Rachel finds someone else. Uh oh! So there's no love for Kurt just yet ... but apparently he finds himself a boyfriend in season 2, which is due to screen in the US in September. Glee screens at 8.30pm on TV3 ... and for anyone looking for an extra Glee fix, Glee the drag musical returns to K' Rd's Naval like to be the bearer of bad news, but tickets have already sold out to Urge's ever-popular Underware Party.  Guess it will be packed, hairy and sweaty! Buffy and Bimbo Wellington's Next Top Drag Queen Rhubarb Rouge took the crown last year – but who will be on top in 2010? Head along to the Garden Club to help decide. The seated audience gets to vote, while there will also be a judging panel featuring Buffy and Bimbo – who will offer this year's winner a spot on their upcoming cabaret show, Upfront and Personal, at Wellington's St. James Theatre on June 19. Doors open at 8pm, with the show starting at 9pm on the dot. Entry is $10 on the door – but it will be first in first served for seats. Liberation, Christchurch A brand new dance party launches in Christchurch this Sunday. Liberation is being held at the Base nightclub in Sol Square, with music from the dance, house and drum and bass ends of the spectrum. There will be limited door sales, while tickets will also be on-sale at a pre-Liberation warm-up at the Honeypot Cafe, where there will be beer and pizza specials from 6.30pm till 9.30pm. Monday 7 June Communication at Out Takes, Wellington Head along to the Paramount to support Kiwi filmmaking. Communication is a beautiful short made by New Zealand's own Christopher Banks and Andy Jalfon, who also made the widely-lauded film Teddy. Communication shows at 4.30pm, preceding Fiona Jackson's An Evening With Richard O'Brien, which shows the Rocky Horror Show creator being interviewed onstage by Mark Sainsbury.
