Posted in anavan, benefit, Bianca O'Blivion, BrownDownCrown, dancedancedance, Homo A Go Go, icy lytes, the gays on June 24, 2009 by browndowncrown

It is finally upon us — the LA invasion of San Francisco with our friends Anavan, Icy Lytes and DJ Bianca O’Blivion at Paparazzi! It started last year cuz we had hella pride at BrownDownCrown but all the parties going on in SF were over run with clones, flip flops and bad music. So we started Paparazzi and churned em out with some kick ass punk bands and dance party! We’re also splitting the proceeds with our favorite music festival, Homo A Go Go, so they’ll be passing out festival guides, recruiting volunteers and announcing their new Saturday night headliner! As for me, BrownDownCrown will be invading the Pride festivities throughout the week like a brown alien with short shorts and rainbow suspenders. Look for the gold glitter bacon sign and you’ll know we’ve arrived so say hi. For now — put on those white pants, get out yr cha cha heels and get ready to party down this Saturday night — beers, burgers and bjs!

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:

PAPARAZZI: LA INVASION!
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!

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!

WRRRK: an evening of sister solidarity to benefit Homo A Go Go

Posted in benefit, dancedancedance, Homo A Go Go, Lil Miss Hot Mess, the gays on April 29, 2009 by browndowncrown

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):
