BUTT BANG! is a pre-pride concert featuring three wild new bands from different parts of the country and all from different genres of music/underground scenes. Salem are a goth-juke-synth band from Chicago who have a full length coming out at the end of the year (their latest EP, YES I SMOKE CRACK, is sold out); Hunx and his Punx are crazy classic Shangri-Las style queerpunkers (fronted by Hunx from Gravy Train!!!); but most exciting to our minds are SISSY NOBBY AND BIG FREEDIA, two of the biggest stars in the wildly popular (among straights and gays) “Sissy bounce” hip-hop scene in New Orleans. Both artists love to shake their butts and sing about boyfriends, bottoming, and eating dick. BUTT BANG! is pre-pride Gay Friday, June 19th at the Knitting Factory in NYC at 8:30PM. Tickets are available on Ticketweb.
