The Flesh Hungry Dog Show is a raucous celebration of alternative creativity, featuring the most fascinating local and touring queer and queer-friendly rock bands, burlesque, and underground performance. Hosted and created by Chicago rock scene groovester Gary Airedale, the show also features the outrageous Bag of Fun prize giveaways, rare vintage film, and the eclectic rock stylings of DJ Sky. Oh, and there will be punch and pie.
The Flesh Hungry Dog Show starts at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, April 4th, 2008 at Jackhammer (773-743-5772), 6406 N. Clark St. in Chicago. Featured performers include testosterone driven rock marvels Jinx Titanic, The Joans (giving Joan Crawford the rock and roll voice she deserves!), the velvety casino sounds of Bric-a-Brac and the scandalous Fleshtones Burlesque.
an uber-inclusive, alterna-queer, mini-rock extravaganza and possibly the most diverse scene in the city.TIME OUT CHICAGO
Former Super 8 Cum Shot heathen, now SAVED and recently ordained as minister, Jinx Titanic, soon to be baptized Gospel Titanic spreads the Sanctified Evangelical Neo-Fundamentalist Ineffable PunkRockabilly Gospel Word and spews plenty of Biblical Ammunition to put the right, right! Jesus Christ! Why let the conservatives have all the fun!
BEST of 2007 "Jinx Titanic remakes Mahalia Jackson's Trouble of the World. This is a mismatch made in heaven. It works, and the song (sped up and manic) seems ever appropriate considering today's headlines." - David Byrne, Pop Making Sense - Windy City Times
The mission of The Joans is simple; Give Joan Crawford, the legendary Hollywood star, the rock and roll voice she deserves! The Joans want to make others aware of the groundbreaking over the top persona that was and is Joan Crawford by embodying her unique spirit through a musical recipe of one part new wave pop, a dash of garage rock, a generous helping of camp, and a pinch of theatrics topped off with original songs. Served hot, it pleases any crowd hungry for something out of the ordinary.
Queer front man of Bric-a-Brac John Conners has likened the Bric-a-Brac experience to listening to AM Radio in 1964 in your parents Rec Room while sipping cheap red wine.
2008 marks Bric-a-Brac's tenth year of performing. 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 NOW audience. Rock, folk, pop and lounge are blended into a velvety sonic soundscape using a variety of instruments including violin, vibes, and vocal harmonies to create what 60's poet icon Rod McKuen called 'an amazingly large sound'. Bric-a-Brac has been heard on NPR's This American Life and has performed at such diverse venues as the Park West, Old Town School of Folk Music, North Shore lawn parties, Southern Illinois weddings and smoky saloons.
