Johnnies In Da House
On Friday, July 3rd, 2009, The Flesh Hungry Dog Show presents, Johnnies In Da House!. Nationally recognized and critically acclaimed gay rapper Johnny Dangerous headlines this months event with his first appearance at The Flesh Hungry Dog Show. Sharing the bill is The Balkaners (back by popular demand after their appearance at the March FHD Show), new band Onono (formed from some of the founding members of the now defunct but perennial Chicago favorite Danger Adventure) and classic male burlesque troupe Stage Door Johnnies.
The Flesh Hungry Dog Show starts at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, July 3rd, 2009 at Jackhammer (773-743-5772), 6406 N. Clark St. in Chicago. Time Out Chicago magazine referred to The Flesh Hungry Dog Show as an uber-inclusive, alterna-queer, mini-rock extravaganza and possibly the most diverse scene in the city. Jackhammer is a 21+ venue. Tickets are $8 and are available at the door, or online at www.fleshhungrydog.com.
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.
Johnny Dangerous is one foul-mouthed spitfire you wouldn't want to cross alone in an alley after dark. Just standing at five-foot-six, this precocious rhyme-slinger demands attention and captivates audiences with his deviant and quirky tales of foul relationships, poorly-endowed men and his desire to give and receive fellatio on a regular basis. His music videos have garnered global attention, especially since scoring the #1 position on Logo's "The Click List with his sexy, electro single, "Dirty is The New Black." Always wild and outrageous, Johnny has been described as a gay male version of Lil' Kim as well as the ying to Peaches' yang. His current video, "(Wan Dat) Azz Iz" is currently in rotation on "New Now Next" and "The Click List" on the Mtv/Logo network.
[Johnny Dangerous is] arguably the most outspoken playa in the game... Dangerous remains one of the most popular entertainers on the scene."-- URB
"Johnny Dangerous is the man who lives in 50 Cent's most homophobic nightmare. [He] rhymes his way into men's pants and pulls no punches when talking about gay sex... the best filthy sex talk of any gay rapper we've heard so far."-- UNZIPPED
The Balkaners are a new band out of Chicago. The members include Tim Kelley and Christa Meyer (Puerto Muerto), Jamie Carter (Judson Claiborne) and Jonny Furman (The Cells). The band incorporates elements of punk rock, Brit-pop, and vintage metal to create a truly unique sound. The lead singer, Christa Meyer utilizes her dramatic flair and operatically trained voice to rile up crowds while the rest of the band happily goes along for the ride. The band is currently recording their debut album at Carterco Studio and plan to have it released by late summer.
Hi, we are Onono, a new band from Chicago. We play dramatic pop/prog/rock-type music. Onono is heavy on keyboards and melodic bass rhythms with all female vocal harmonies. The groups musical influences are numerous and varied: Blonde Redhead, Stereolab, Yes, Sixties Pop, Black Sabbath and Francios Hardy, in no particular order.
Caroline Nutley, the lead singer and keyboard player has worked with the drummer, John Goodwin, for many years. Together they were two of the founding members of the now defunct Chicago band, Danger Adventure (2000-2006). DA released an album, The Pomegranate, on the Barcelona based independent label Fork Series, and subsequently went abroad to tour Spain. Orion Layon, Ononos bassist, contributed to Danger Adventure from 2004 to 2006 and joined the group for several mid-west and east coast tours including a trip to Pop Montreal in 2005. Recently, these three found themselves writing music with each other once again. Ononos line-up was completed with the addition of Ellen Layton, keyboardist and singer, who adds depth and texture to Ononos dramatic sound.
