Katz is back!!


Harvery Katz of Athen’s Boys Choir will be back in Lexington in March and we get to play with him again! For anyone who doesn’t know him already, get to! Here’s a snippet of his bio from his website;

“Katz’s spoken-word is raw, unapologetic, witty, and soulful. As Out Magazine wrote in 2006, “Katz avoids falling into the common spoken-word trap… and instead uses engaging wordplay, razor-sharp wit, and hip-hop rhythms.” He has had the honor of sharing the stage with such artists as Ani Difranco, Indigo Girls, Bitch, The Butchies, Danielle Howle, and Michelle Malone. He has also opened for poets of HBO’s Def Poetry Jam on more than one occasion.”

We’re going to open for BITCH!!!!

Spooky Qs have the honor of opening for her on April 3rd at Al’s bar. If you haven’t heard of her, you need to. You can check her out and her music at:


qcr flyer This past Saturday we had the good fortune to play w/ two AMAZING bands from the San Francisco based record lable, Queer Control Records. QCR is a non profit record label that exists to promote LGBTIQQ music and musicians; to sponsor special events involving the public performance of LGBTIQQ music and musicians; and to provide musical education and instrument instruction for aspiring LGBTIQQ musicians.

Joining us on the bill last night were Once a Pawn from Lincoln Nebraska, and Pariah Piranha from Harrisburg PA. Check them both out because they’re fantastic.

Not only was the music terrific, but we were able to raise over $400 for AVOL, which is a Lexington based non profit that is committed to providing education, outreach, and advocacy about HIV and AIDS in Central and Eastern Kentucky.

Finally, look out for a review of the show in the next issue of North of Center.
