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.
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.
On Tuesday September 15th, Al’s bar (located on the corner of 6th and Limestone St., Lexington KY – six blocks north of downtown’s Main St.) will be hosting an awesomely queer evening!!
It will kick off with trans spoken word/slam poet Harvey Katz from the Athens Boys Choir.
Following Harvey will be 8″ Betsy, an energetic lesbian rock/punk/indie trio from Chicago (think riot grrrl, team dresch, babes in toyland)
And to close the evening, Lexington Kentucky’s very own Spooky Qs.
Door’s at 6:30, with the show starting promptly at 7pm. Cover is $5 with part of the door going towards the OUTsource. This show is ALL AGES. Bring your hunger because Al’s bar has awesome local food!
