Wrap HAGG in Bacon and Throw it To the Menz. This is it. Family Reunion. The Ultimate Gaycation. YOUR queer arts revolution. When August 13th hits thousands of hot gayz will be descending upon San Francisco for four days of full blown mayhem — Homo A Go Go. And THAT is why they are this week’s Bacon Wrapped Icon. Glass Candy, Erase Errata, Mirah and Girl in a Coma as headliners. Peaches Christ, Lil Miss Hot Mess and Carole and Mitzi as hosts. VICKY MARLANE, SF’s iconic drag queen is performing! Larry Bob is taking folks on a queer zine field trip. Samara Halperin is gonna teach you how to make stop motion animated films! Courtney Trouble is screening DIY porn shorts along with the fabulous documentary Forever’s Gonna Start Tonight, the iconic Maggots and Men and the hella punk Lollipop Generation. Dancing with Honey Sound System, RCHRD OH?, Pink Lightning, Rapid Fire, soul music with DJS Brown Amy and DJ Carnita! And wait — a fashion show curated by Chelsea Starr! Not to mention the 40 plus bands that are performing — She Beast with the beautiful Nadia Buyse, The Casual Lust, Dorian Wood, The Younger Lovers (and former Bacon Wrapped Icon), Partyline (with Alison Wolfe head Riot Grrrl), Purple Rhinestone Eagle, Hard Place, Hunx & His Punx, Jenna Riot, Katastrophe. All this AND a bar called the Gaycation Lounge, a group art show and basically the best party SF is throwing this entire summer.

BrownDownCrown does Cable TV

Posted in BrownDownCrown, on demand, world takeover on July 14, 2009 by browndowncrown

As part of our ever extending empire BrownDownCrown decided that we needed to get on cable TV. The best way we knew how was to get ‘On Demand’ — and the only way we knew how to do that was to create a personal ad. Check out this video to watch our personal ad and see how you can watch Devon Devine on your TV at home! BrownDownCrown — taking over living rooms one home at a time…

Bacon Wrapped Iconz: Girl in A Coma

Posted in bacon wrapped icon, BrownDownCrown, Girl in a Coma, hella ethnic, Homo A Go Go on July 7, 2009 by browndowncrown

Girl in A Coma
These three girls from Texas are basically hella fierce — they are so BrownDownCrown they are this week’s Bacon Wrapped Icon. I am freaking out that they are headlining Friday night of Homo A Go Go — their mesmerizing vocals combined with their Rock n Roll sound and homegrown attitude make them, well, family (and I swear that one girl looks like my cousin). I can’t wait to see what they sound like live — and maybe even share a tamale with them afterward. Remember to get your tix to this show before it sells out! Check out their music video below (if you know the boy with the water gun tell him I’m looking for him) — let’s fill up their SomArts Homo A Go Go show with as many brown people as we can!

BrownDownCrown makes a Sign

Posted in Brown Amy, Gay Tacos for MJ, Homo A Go Go, I saw the sign, the gays, Wrap Me in Baconz on July 7, 2009 by browndowncrown

IMG00190-20090627-1507You too can make a BDC inspired sign in 4 easy steps!

1.) choose a witty and timely topic. Bacon, gayz and Michael Jackson are often timeless.
2.) buy posterboard. put on some good music. roll yr sleeves up and make yr sign! apply creative visuals and large cut out letters — glitter and glue are yr friends people.
3.) find something to hold your sign up with! spatulas and rulers will work — in my case a broken Rock Band drum stick with pink duct tape did the trick.
4.) display your sign! find a hot brown person (in my case — the lovely DJ and stylist to the starz Brown Amy) and an appropriate locale (the dyke march is over but there is always Homo A Go Go).

remember — don’t confuse people! DHC (direct and honest communication)! the only problem with this sign was that everyone thought i was selling tacos! i had to explain to them, “I am the gay taco …” now make some signs and most importantly — take sexxxy pictures of them and email em to me!

Glass Candy headlining Homo A Go Go!

Posted in chanel, Glass Candy, Homo A Go Go, the gays, WhiteTightRight on July 1, 2009 by browndowncrown

glass candyBDC is hella excited that Glass Candy is headlining Homo A Go Go this year!  They may be skinny white hipsters but their pilled out psychedelic anthems make our fat asses dance and that’s all that matters.  I hope they’re not vegan cuz BrownDownCrown is gonna stuff them with bacon backstage before their show at Homo A Go Go! Get your HAGG passes NOW because this show is seriously going to sell out — there are only so many gayz, hipsterz and lesbianz with assymetrical haircuts we can fit in the SomArts warehouse! One thing is for sure — if Glass Candy is good enough for Coco Chanel, then they’re good enough for BrownDownCrown! check out this video at the Chanel fashion show…
