BDC is ready to party with Erase Errata this weekend! EE has always been one of our favorite bands ever since we were baby gayz in Olympia, WA jamming to their music in stinky punk houses. In addition to their performance at the Don’t Bomb the Moon Fest this Saturday in SF, lead singer Jenny Hoyston will be a part of a panel of folks the night before at El Rio for Funtime (including BDC’s favorite porn princess, Courtney Trouble and Bacon Wrapped Icon Brontez from Gravy Train!!! and The Younger Lovers). Wow — very sexy! BDC was so excited we asked Jenny Hoyston to answer some WhiteTightRight questions for us about EE, playing with Team Dresch, Fabulosa Fest and pervy bacon wrapping.

BDC: Tell us about the Erase Errata reunion! How was it playing again at Homo a Go Go? What can we look forward to for EE’s near future?
Erase Errata plays several shows each year. They are usually “fly-ins” to events like EuroPride or college shows so we’ve been out of the San Francisco radar for the last few years. It felt great getting together and playing for the hometown crowd during HAGG. We just finished Pacific Northwest dates with Team Dresch and began a recording new material with Christina Files in her Portland studio. We don’t feel pressure to finish the recording in any time frame. Erase Errata is an ongoing project amid our busy lives.

On Saturday EE is playing the ‘Don’t Bomb the Moon’ event and i have heard you talk publicly about this before. Why is this important to you? What can we expect to happen at this event?
JH: Jarrett Mitchell, who founded don’tbombthemoon.com, planned this free concert/demonstration in San Francisco to follow up on other demos he’s done in Louisville, KY, Chicago, Portland, etc. There will be lots of bands playing from 4pm on and Jarrett’s amazing anti-lunar bombing art will be on display (and for sale) at the event. It will be the place to be this Saturday.

BDC: This year I attended Fabulosa Fest! How did you get involved with organizing it and will it be happening again next year?
JH: Fabulosa Fest will be happening again mid July 2010. We tripled our numbers this year and have some really big names lined up for next year’s festival so we are looking for a new property to hold it on. The swimming situation is obviously important in our locale search since everyone loves to stay cool in the water between performances. I got involved in planning Fabulosa with my partners (El Rio owner) Dawn Huston and Judea Eden because I love planning fundraisers and concerts but was getting bored just doing shows in bars and clubs. It is so nice to create queer feminist space and the participants have brought the most amazing energy to the event every year. I’m so proud.

BDC: How do you like living in Portland? What’s the music scene like there and any Portland bands u recommend listening to?
JH: I like it up here. I can afford to live in a house, which is such a change for me from Bay Area warehouse squatting. I come down to San Francisco every other month so I still feel in touch with music and art there. I’ve put on shows here for Lovers and Forsorcerers and a few other bands but I honestly don’t go out to shows as much as I used to.

BDC: Tell me about the event at El Rio on Friday. Will you be performing?
JH: Friday at El Rio there will be a live talk show. The hilarious host will be interviewing Kaia Wilson and I together about going to the Jerry Jeff Walker concert the previous night. Kaia and I will be performing a Jerry Jeff Walker song together during the interview. Courtney from NoFauxxx.com and Brontez from GravyTrain!!!/Younger Lovers are the other guests. It should be wild!

BDC: What was it like playing with Team Dresch!!
JH: Playing with Team Dresch was an honor. Their music means so much to me. I completely retreated into it when I was younger. I stood beside the stage during both of the shows we did together and sang along – I know every word. the Portland show was a little more wild and fun. I took my shirt off during “Remember Who You Are” and a few others followed suit.

BDC: Most importantly — if you could wrap any musician in bacon, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
JH: Ugh! You are obviously a complete pervert! I would not personally wrap anyone in bacon. I just barfed reading this. Oh, here it comes again…
