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:
