The Duelling Bankheads

I'm celebrating Gay Pride weekend by attending a straight wedding upstate. But if I was going to be here, I'd go to this:
Dean Johnson's email reads:
says "Good-Bye" to CBGB
315 Bowery 212.982.4052 admission $15
hosted by The Duelling Bankheads

The Velvet Mafia / The Gay Pimp Jonny McGovern /Cazwell
Miss Guy / DaLipstyxx / The Maul Girls Reunion / 3PUEN
Dirty Excuse / The Alter Bois / Carol Channing Rox

Right after the Dyke March ends we've got three great bands in a row starting at 9pm: the HomoCorps debut of The Alter Bois the one-year anniversary of Sarah Michael's band Dirty Excuse, and the post-punk new wave art rock stylings of the pangenderal 3PUEN. Words cannot decsribe this act: it must be experienced to be believed. Genius!

Next comes a special treat: a reunion of the popular East Village dyke band The Maul Girls. I recommend this ban very highly, they are one of my all-time favorite dance bands and they rock. Unfortunately, they don't seem to get along very well and getting them all on the same stage is like pulling teeth so don't miss your only chance to see them in concert. They're like the Fleetwood Mac of dyke rock.

Then the Duelling Bankheads will perform, followed by a naked man singing "America the Beautiful" to open the Velvet Mafia set with the song "Testosterone" from our new CD.
At midnight we start all over again with "DaLipstyxx", the most amazing "girl group" since Diana Ross kicked Flo out of The Supremes. Next is downtown's poet laureate Cazwell, laying down some mad rhymes in a venue where you can actually hear what he's saying! Miss Guy performs at the peak of the evening with her brilliant new solo act after leaving the Toilet Boys, and finally The Gay Pimp Jonny McGovern tops us off with his MTV-style pop extravaganza and back-up crew of sexy-to-die-for barely legal dancers (only 16 to enter!)
Finally, in keeping with a tradtion started at Rock n Roll Fag Bar 20 years ago, the final performance will be Miss Carroll Channing Rox performing "Bohemian Rhapsody." Look out, she loves to crowd-surf. And she wears "Depends".
