"…one of the musical underground's most vibrant and diverse club nights."—Jim DeRogatis, Chicago Sun-Times
On Friday, November 5, Flesh Hungry Dog Show is pleased to present a very civic-minded installment of our monthly show. Rumor has it that a certain "plaster-caster" is planning to announce her intentions to get erected…errr…elected to the office of the Mayor of Chicago. This will be Cynthia's first public address and rally as a mayoral candidate.
Join us for some rock n' roll, a little sexiness, and political rally. Chicago favorites The Joans (Chicago's only Joan Crawford inspired rock band) will headline, along with special guests Bric-a-Brac—with cover songs culled from thrift-store b-side—and Onono. Hosted by Chicago rock impresario Gary Airedale, the show will also feature "Bag of Fun" prize giveaways from The Pleasure Chest, and special guest performers from Girlie-Q Burlesque and DJ Sky.
The mission of The Flesh Hungry Dog Show is to bring live rock and related musical forms to Chicago's gay community, and to provide a fun, alternative venue for bands with GLBT content and members, and bands that are GLBT supportive. (…and to present and position candidates for office.)
Chicago-based band The Joans, formed in 2007, are a pop band that combine elements of old school new wave, glam, and electronic dance grooves to form their own unique sound. They have appeared live throughout Chicago including Chicago Pridefest and Halsted Market Days, among others and were honored to play the legendary Folsum Street Fair (San Francisco) and to open for Natasha Bedingfield, Cyndi Lauper and Joan Rivers at Milwaukee Pridefest 2008-2010.
The Joans were voted favorite rock band by the Chicago Free Press readers in 2009 and were named best debut CD by Windy City Times. Their video Mad at the Dirt has appeared on NewNowNext and The Click List on the Logo Network and caught the attention of gay music icon Boy George who called The Joans "…brilliant". They are currently working a video for Joan Crawford Goes to Hell, and on new material for a future online release date. We Are The Joans, their debut CD, was released in September 2009.
The definition of Bric-a-Brac is "miscellaneous curios" and true to their name, Bric-a-Brac covers the world of little known songs found on thrift store records and B-sides of singles giving them a fresh sound for today's audience. Rock, pop and lounge are blended into a velvety sonic soundscape to create what 60's poet icon Rod McKuen called 'an amazingly large sound'. Starting their second decade of performing, Bric-a-Brac has performed on NPR's This American Life, Chic-a-Go-go, Milly's Orchid Show, and was the prom band at The Old Town School of Folk Music's 50th anniversary "Homecoming Dance".
Onono was formed sometime in 2007 with several members that were previously in Danger Adventure. The sound of onono is a mixture of prog-ish brooding and psychedelic winding passages combined with a healthy dose of pop flavor. onono looks forward to completing our-self released album, Mound City in the spring, and performing more in our fair city of Chicago.
