I mean, it’s Tuesday in September and there’s not a lot of options (there’s only so much bingo, karaoke and tacos to be eaten…) so why not head up to the top of Beacon Hill to party at The Clock-Out Lounge with a fun trio of bands on hand presented by Hierophant Booking and False Prophet!
There’s also delicious food and drinks to be had while you enjoy queer rocking out with fun local favorites like the Ononos and Swishblade plus headliner, the leather daddy rocker PLACK BLAGUE! SO MUCH RAUNCHY ROCKY COCKY FUN ON A TUESDAY NIGHT!!!!
AND, don’t forget that The Clock-Out is also the monthly home for the very popular drag cabaret show TUSH which now happens TWICE a month, the 4th Thursday and Friday of the month with hostess Betty Wetter and a bevy of local drag talent. Tush tends to sell out so snag those tickies!
I was also looking for an excuse to post one of their terrific posters…nice graphics!
This month’s line-up:
BEACON HILL’S MOST GLAMOROUS MONTHLY DRAG SHOW- HOSTED BY THE ONE AND ONLY BETTY WETTER!
PERFORMANCES THIS MONTH BY BEAU DEGAS, BETTY WETTER, DAHLIA FATALE, DIOR DIOR BLACK, DRAMA TOPS, MOSCATO SKY, DUSTY BAHLS AND DJ DARK WILEY
AND, the Grandfathers of Gay Rock n Roll, PANSY DIVISION are heading back to Seattle on Saturday, September 30th with opening acts, Biblioteka and Rat Queen! It’s a rare opportunity to see these closet door breaking rock legends live onstage!!!
CLOCK-OUT LOUNGE PRESENTS: PANSY DIVISION W/ BIBLIOTEKA, RAT QUEEN
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 30TH 21+
THERE HAVE BEEN GAY MUSICIANS HIDDEN THROUGHOUT ROCK MUSIC HISTORY, BUT
PANSY DIVISION WHEN BEGAN IN 1991 IN SAN FRANCISCO, THEY WERE THE FIRST TO BE
SO BOLDLY OPEN ABOUT IT. FOUNDED BY GUITARIST/SINGER JON GINOLI AND SOON JOINED
BY BASSIST/SINGER CHRIS FREEMAN, WITH THE INTENT OF FORMING A GAY ROCK BAND,
PANSY DIVISION BLEW THE CLOSET DOORS OPEN.
RAISED ON A DIET OF 60S POP AND 70S PUNK, THEIR SOUND WAS SUITABLY CRUNCHY AND
CATCHY AS HELL. THEY WROTE IN-YOUR-FACE LYRICS, BUT DID IT WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR.
NOT ONLY DID THEIR MUSIC AND STANCE DEFY STEREOTYPIC NORMS OF ROCK MUSICIANS
BEING OPENLY GAY, THEY ALSO BROKE GAY CULTURAL STEREOTYPES THAT ROCK WOULDN’T
INTEREST GAY PEOPLE.
