BDC is going to HARD FRENCH

Posted in art party, Brown Amy, dancedancedance, DJ Carnita, HARD FRENCH, jorge portillo on February 24, 2010 by browndowncrown

The HARD FRENCH crew in SF are starting a new OUTDOOR DAYTIME soul music party! The idea behind the event is to modernize, takeover, revamp, trick out, revive, and do up the Outdoor Afternoon Dance Party in the Mission. This is a party for everyone- a party where drag queens mingle with lesbians, leather daddy’s soul dance with cholas, sharps share hot dogs with activists, jocks make out with twinks, brown meets white meets purple meets gay guy meets ladies meets q and everyone leaves excited for the next party. The party is being dj’d by Resident DJ newcomers and soul music wizards DJ Carnita and DJ Brown Amy. They, along with the rest of the Hard French Crew, will be curating music throughout the spring and summer with live bands, guest dj’s, performers and as many surprises.

for more info check out our facebook invite and DJ Carnita and DJ Brown Amy’s blog, The Real Nitty Gritty.

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’.
