Queer Bands On Tour
I thought it would be nice to have information about queer bands on tour in one place so people looking for information on queer punk, queercore bands, gay rock, homo-hop, or whatever you want to call this stuff, could find it easily. Follow the links to the lists of dates. In some cases the lists are on other sites which have been updating listings, so even if I say a band's not on tour, follow the link to see if there's more current information. I also list some non-band stuff that's happening in places besides San Francisco, like queer films, etc.

In Seattle WA at The Little Theater 608 19th Ave E, 675-2055 Wednesday June 25th at 8pm (sliding scale/donation) will be THE NEW GAY: The New Gay is here to get your motor hot, thinking on a visionary quest for a newly gay horizon, with such treacherously beautiful possibilities. We hope to give you a show that brings forth queer art that is new in the sense that it's rarely valued; not seen in a march of name tag poster boys and girls who rule the streets for the day. We are not so much reactionary gay with rainbows to let you know, it's about a new living, the constant digging deeper in film and performance. And let me warm you now, the new gay is only the beginning, of something that has already started, the revolution of living and pushing forward with kicking thrusts to the edge of our society, a fringe of the fringed that we would like you to be a part of, at least for one night. From Sleazy Drag Kings to 'Scream Club' rapper mohawk babies, to 'Eva Los Vegas' doing traditional latin music and much more with a hottie lady to kick it. Films, performance, music, spoken word, and more: we hope to show you something a little NEW that you don't see in a pride gay world, or even in other parts of town. Costumes and Drag Gender Babies highly demanded and encouraged!!! If you feel that this is your new calling and you want to be a part of this performance and film extravaganza, please e-mail ELLIAT at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jaime at The Little Theater at (206)329-2829/(206)675-2055, we are still accepting artist and queerions.
