Bacon Wrapped Iconz = Gossip

Posted in bacon wrapped icon, BeyonceWouldLoveIt, gossip on April 29, 2009 by browndowncrown

The Gossip are a BrownDownCrown favorite — making them this week’s Bacon Wrapped Icon.  From house shows in Olympia to fashion runways in London they have made it and are spreading the gospel of fried chicken, fat girls fashion and dance beatz to National Enquirer covers across the world.  Check out their newest song and hopefully a US Tour in the fall! Gossip

BrownDownCrown is obsessed with Icy Lytes — a duo from LA bringing the Latino Heat to SF this weekend at a benefit for Homo A Go Go.  They wear all white, they sing in Spanish and there is a chicken riding a bicycle in this video — that’s hella brown (almost as brown as the time my mom bought a baby duck at the flea market).  Check out this video — then come see them live this Sunday at the Make Out Room! Along with your hostess, Vivvyanne ForeverMore, DJ Bus Station John and DJ Sex Wax and visuals by Vis a Vis!  click here to view the facebook invite: DanceDanceDance Baby

So we here at BrownDownCrown wear many hats and one of them is working with Homo A Go Go, an amazing organization that is throwing a huge festival here in San Francisco in mid August. So we’re throwing a huge benefit — think drag queens, dancing and probably a few slutty gayz prancing around. It’s the first show Lil Miss Hot Mess has put together so come see what the buzz is all about (click on the flyer to view the facebook invite):
