Bacon Wrapped Icon of the Week: The Younger Lovers

Posted in bacon wrapped icon, club feral, CrazySexyCool, justin kelly, younger lovers on May 28, 2009 by browndowncrown

What do you get when you wrap a riot grrrl in bacon and unwrap it over a decade later? Brontez singing with the Younger Lovers! Seriously, Brontez — I know you really want to be singing ‘d-e-v-o-n’ instead of ‘d-a-n-n-y’ and for that The Younger Lovers is the Bacon Wrapped Icon of the Week. Check out their new music video directed by the amazing Justin Kelly (where can we find the uncut shower scenes, Justin?). And don’t forget to come out and see the Younger Lovers at Club Feral on June 6th!

Posted in anavan, benefit, Bianca O'Blivion, BrownDownCrown, dancedancedance, hipster grifter, Homo A Go Go, icy lytes, the gays on May 20, 2009 by browndowncrown

BrownDownCrown and Bianca O’Blivion (brown + brown = hella brown) are teaming up to bring you:

Saturday June 27th — over SF Pride Weekend!
This is our second Paparazzi Party over Pride so we have BIG things in store. Performances by Anavan and Icy Lytes, DJs Bianca O’Blivion and Late Start and if dreams came true then the Hipster Grifter would be attending too. Unfortunately, she’s in jail — but we can still start a letter writing campaign! This year Paparazzi is not only an after party for Frameline (the SF homo film fest) but it is also a partial benefit for Homo A Go Go! All this and the hottest gays SF has to offer under one roof. Invite yr friends via the facebook invite (especially if they are famous) and see you on the dance floor!

Paparazzi: LA Invasion!

Taking Drugs and Making Love with Icy Lytes

Posted in art party, bacon wrapped icon, benefit, dancedancedance, Homo A Go Go, icy lytes, Paparazzi on May 14, 2009 by browndowncrown

LA’s biggest secret weapon – ICY LYTES. These kids took over SF at the Make Out room on May 3rd for a Homo A Go Go Benefit. The crowd was so wild Icy Lytes took their clothes off and I got so excited I even yelled at a drunk girl to stop groping me. They’re so brown they wear all white, they’re beats make you dance yr ass off and I swear on my Abuelita’s rosaries there were at least three hipsters after the show ordering Spanish Rosetta Stone applications for their I-Phones. BrownDownCrown interviewed them for the next installment of our TV show, coming out in June — and wait till you hear who they want to wrap in bacon. They had so much fun we convinced them to come back! YES, they are confirmed to play PAPARAZZI PRIDE on June 27th at Thee Parkside! If you missed the HAGG benefit, catch a clip of it here (blame the drunk groping girl for the bad footage) and make sure you don’t miss them when they reunite with SF next month!

CrazySexyCool- BDC gets chub for Mirror Mirror

Posted in art party, chub, Cochon Records, CrazySexyCool, mirror mirror on May 13, 2009 by browndowncrown

Cochon Records Anniversary party was so good it really couldn’t be summed up in just one post.  Like when you eat three tacos and you go back and wait in line for a fourth.  Mirror Mirror was THAT good.  So good in fact that BrownDownCrown is officially creating a new category for them — CrazySexyCool (paying tribute to the BDC queens that came before us).  From the beginning chords with the lead singer dressed as a banana to the crazy outfit changes covering their faces with netted fabric — the show gave us chub like an aural Matthew Barney porno.  Get the cd with the pretentious name that makes us like them even more, get hella stoned, and pay attention when they sing ‘Lock Up Your Sons’.
