Announcing: National Radical Queer Convergence May 28th-31st
Filed under: Uncategorized
Anarcha-Queers! Trannies! Fairies! Perverts! Sex-Workers! Sex-Radicals!
Bash Back! is ecstatic to announce a national radical queer
convergence to take place in Chicago, May 28th through May 31st of 2009!
We’re pleased to invite all radical queers to join us for a weekend of
debauchery and mischief. The last weekend of May will prove to be four solid days of workshops, discussions, performances, games, dancing and street action!
We’ll handle the food and the housing. Ya’ll bring the orgy, riot,
We’re looking for folks to facilitate discussions, put on workshops, organize caucuses, share games, tell stories, get heavy in some theory, or bottom-line a dance party. More specifically we’re looking for
workshops themed around queer and trans liberation, anti-racism, confronting patriarchy, sex work, ableism, self defense, DIY mental and sexual health, radical history, pornography, or queer theory. We are also looking for copious amounts of glitter, safer sex products, zines, home-made sex toys, balaclavas, pink and black flags, sequins, bondage gear, rad porn, flowers, strap-ons, and assorted dumpstered goodies. You down?
To RSVP, volunteer for a workshop, get more information, or send us dirty pictures:

You HAVE to go to at least on of these two events, if not both. They will change your life.
SKOAL KODIAK -
at Death by Audio
My sweaty memories of Skoal Kodiak are numerous and fuzzy, voted by me to be the best Minneapolis band since the Replacements and/or Husker Du. This kid Marcus is a genius who creates this series of weird touch sensor pads in a empty Clorox bleach bottle that he sings into. It's dancy, noisy, filthy, sludgy, and will absolutely make you lose your mind.
They used to play at The Church in Minneapolis, a huge, beautiful, decaying church where a bunch of bike punks and art kids lived, made noise, and played badminton. Before they finally tore it down, the bestest farewell party in the whole world was had, headlined by Skoal Kodiak. My crew, the Revolting Queers, sent off the Church in classic style - Victorian drag, thongs, and water balloons down the pants of unsuspecting straight kids. The evening ended as you would expect, me in denim booty shorts pulling yards of taffeta out of Jerry's jammed-up bike gears.
Anyway, I digress - GO SEE SKOAL KODIAK.
GRACE JONES evening at the Cock (celebrating 10th anniversary)
Kevin Aviance, Ericka Toure Aviance, (AND YOU!) as Grace Jones
I know, right? So sweet! The Cock is turning 10. What better way to celebrate 10 years of indiscretions and amazing music than with an evening celebrating Ms Jones, presented by the man who gave you "Feeling Cunty."
This will be a late one, but sometimes, we must be weary to know that we are still fighting.
Learn about how the economy is gonna get even worse from Obama on Meet the Press.
While I'd like to avoid international financial deterioration as much as the next fellow, I can't help but be emboldened by the innovative discussions I've been having regarding the ways in which we can re-envision new collectivist economies. Here's a couple ideas we've been batting about.
It's hardly a new idea, but I desperately want to create some new opportunities for a barter economy. I also want more opportunities for delicious, low-cost cocktails. Picture it: a space for you to bring your goods and services to trade with others. And a space for tasty, adult beverages. I serve as both bartender and barter-tender. And while craigslist has set the tone for this sort of exchange, nothing beats in person, slightly inebriated haggling. Who's in?
Basically, we'd gather a collective to throw in a small amount of money to join, and then a monthly pittance to maintain and grow the pot. A designated group would oversee any applications to join the group, and requests for interest-free loans from members of the collective. Loans would be granted based on need, ability to pay back, and size of the request.
I'm sure there would be lots of by-laws that could be written and mindless paperwork to fill out.
Kredit Kidz will be a sort of credit union. So it's not that Krazy of an idea. Except ours will be sexy, have fun parties, offer whopee cushions when you join, and encourage clothing optional Fridays.
Also, I don't think you can just get any old loan for any old thing with Kredit Kidz. You either REALLY need to have it, or it's for something REALLY awesome, and to start, you couldn't take out too much money.
Think less Individual needs ($10000 for a car), and more repayable collective good ($500 to throw a fun party which could be paid back thru beer sales). I think part of Kredit Kidz is responsible lending. You shouldn't have stuff you don't need that takes 10 years to pay back. That's why I have shitty credit. And that's why I need (and love) Kredit Kidz.

Music Hall of Williamsburg
Boris RULZ!!! Japanese noise trio that I've seen a couple times and have lost my mind on both. The first was at Walker, when they opened for SUNNO))). It's never been louder. I saw them again in Milwaukee at this teeeny tiiiny club, filled to the brim with LARPing dudes and their heavily mascara'd ladies. All of a sudden, living with my parents was AOK.
Here's a taste...

live-band Kareoke party
Hosted by Andrew WK
Back up band - Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
Basically, I love AWK, I like Ted Leo enough to want to sing Pearl Jam covers with him, and Studio B is real close to my house. You figure out the rest.
The Song I've been working on

Heloise and the Savoir Faire
Music Hall of Williamsburg
Sorry to post the same venue, but you NEED to go see them. like need to. They're the opener for the Teenagers, so don't try to pull any fashionably late nonsense. Why they're opening for someone on a Thursday night is beyond me. Body, face, look, fashions, sounds, rhythms. They're giving it all with ferociousness. When Karyn and I stumbled into their show a couple months ago, we were convinced we were seeing the B-52's in Athens, GA in 1979.
Heloise - Illusions

Flux Factory Benefit
Flux Factory is a NYC-based arts organization that used to house work-live residency spaces for artists doing rad stuff. They were kicked out of Williamsburg, and have just been evicted out of their Long Island City space. They're getting together to raise some bucks. No one has any money, just like you, but we've got to help out. Pull it together and show some love.

Santos Party House
I started chatting with this sweet little tranny that comes into my restaurant, and it turns out he throws BowieBall. They've got some trannyfagdyke LEGENDS participating including Michael T, Michael Formika Jones (of Squeezebox fame), Miss Guy, Dirty Martini, and Tigger. Oh, and Stella B Zotis from Project Runway, but I haven't had cable for a while and can't speak to if she's awesome of not. Also, the delightful Pixie Harlots will be prancing about in their signature post-everything outfits. You would be enchanted.

Yep. It's true. I'm trying to have one of these gdamn blogs again. Let's see if it sticks this time.
I've been studying tarot recently. I just pulled a card after asking how my blog is going to go.
I got the Two of Cups. Cups is the emotional, watery suit in the tarot deck. As a Pisces, my world view typically ebbs and flows, not necessarily locking into one direction. Appropriate, I trust.
Also, the Two of Cups symbolizes a new partnership, a union, all based in balance and harmony.
Fagitprop, I love you. Two become one.
