Chris Sutton and a packed house for the Gossip Show

…. well, sort of. For all purposes we were going to chat with the Gossip, and we did, but once we got there it was a reunion of old and new friends, dancing till we fell over, a crowd surfer (who will remain nameless) scaring the shit out of us and then after party at Honey Sundays with gaggles of gayboys surrounding lead singer, Beth Ditto, on all sides. With all the chaos backstage and afterward all the questions we wanted to ask Beth were lost but we did get to ask her the most important BDC question of all time: Who would you want to wrap in bacon? read on for the answer….

— from our vantage point we could see the front row of sexy brown gayboys singing along to every song like happy drag queens in Reno and that made BDC fill up with joy.
— also met another group of brown gayboys afterward (all of whom had a gay job like florist, stylist and colorist) who came all the way from Fresno to see the show! yah!
— between the Bikini Kill mash up, Queen sing along and Tina Turner cover, the Gossip definitely blew the crowd away and remain one of the best live shows EVER
— we’re so excited for the addition of Chris Sutton as bassist to the band!
— at one point we were talking with TWO of BDC’s Bacon Wrapped Icons at once (Beth Ditto from the Gossip and Andy from Hercules and Love Affair) and that just really was a lot of sexy bacon wrappers in one spot
— When asked who she’d want to wrap in bacon Beth didn’t skip a beat when responding: Lydia Lunch.

here are some pictures from the show… and some videos we found on the internet:

GOSSIP makes BDC want to eat Fried Chicken

Posted in beth ditto, BrownDownCrownTV, chris sutton, fried chicken, gossip, rocktober, truffle shuffle on September 22, 2009 by browndowncrown

The Gossip recently performed live on the Jools Holland show (guess its some cool show in Europe?) and it made us love them SO much more. And this is why:

1.) they are now performing with bassist Chris Sutton who has been in so many bands we can’t list them all but we like him best in C.O.C.O. and Dub Narcotic Sound System.
2.) Hannah’s pompadour is so big it reaches the sky
3.) Beth’s first outfit in the clip below is hella gay rainbow peacock meets Colonel Sanders and if thats not punk high fashion I don’t know what is. BDC likes anything that reminds us of fried chicken.
4.) their music inspires us to truffle shuffles all the way to Popeyes!

Dear Gossip — BrownDownCrown can’t wait for you to come back to San Francisco in Rocktober… won’t you please let us buy you some Chubby Hubby and do an interview for BDCTV?? love, BrownDownCrown
