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.

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!

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!

Icy Lytes: Makin Scrilla for the Gayz

Posted in bacon wrapped icon, dancedancedance, DJ Bus Station John, DJ Sex Wax, hella ethnic, Homo A Go Go, icy lytes, scrilla on April 29, 2009 by browndowncrown

BrownDownCrown is obsessed with Icy Lytes — a duo from LA bringing the Latino Heat to SF this weekend at a benefit for Homo A Go Go.  They wear all white, they sing in Spanish and there is a chicken riding a bicycle in this video — that’s hella brown (almost as brown as the time my mom bought a baby duck at the flea market).  Check out this video — then come see them live this Sunday at the Make Out Room! Along with your hostess, Vivvyanne ForeverMore, DJ Bus Station John and DJ Sex Wax and visuals by Vis a Vis!  click here to view the facebook invite: DanceDanceDance Baby
