My band boys and I are flying home from Austin to Portland as I type this (airplane WI-FI is soooooo rad) and we are filled with all kinds of love and inspiration from this past weekend of performing and watching shows at Austin Stargayzer Festival. Huge thanks to Brett Hornsby, Tisha Sparks, Shane Terenzi and everyone else working the festival — You were all such a joy to work with and should feel so proud of this beautiful thing you created!
COUNT US IN FOR NEXT YEAR FOR SURE!!! I’ll play for you kids anytime. That was a blast!
Extra big, filthy shout-outs to my darling CHRISTEENE for making me feel at home while we were in town, per her usual. Love her so much.
I’ve posted a few of the highlights from the weekend below, and there is video of our Sunday headliner performance en route as well (all thanks to filmmaker PJ Raval).

I am thrilled to announce that I will be performing at the 2014 Mo-Wave Festival in Seattle, voted “Best Festival” by Seattle Weekly last year. Mo-Wave runs from Friday, April 11th through Sunday, April 13th at Chop Suey. I suggest you attend all three days of shows, but if you have to pick just one day, I play at 4pm on Sunday.
Other acts on this year’s Mo-Wave bill include my all-time favorite supertalent Justin Vivian Bond and my dearest, troubled Christeene! Also performing are ZEBRA KATZ, Night Cadet, Tacocat, Earl Dax, Carletta Sue Kay, Belles Bent For Leather, Ononos, Boy Funk, HYPNOtits, CZARL1NG, Dust Moth, Spear & the Magic Helmet, Death Metals and sooooooo many other awesome queers!
I was interviewed by PQ Monthly this past week about my summer tour, and this Thursday’s Portland show at Mississippi Studios. Have a gander at the original on the PQ site HERE, or just keep reading below…
From PQ Monthly, July 2013:
Now that July 4th has come and gone, you can start planning for July 11th–that’s the date the tour with the longest official title ever–Accidental Bear Queer Music Tour Benefit for LGBTQ Mental Health Services and Suicide Prevention–descends upon our fair city. The lineup is almost as long as the name–it includes Big Dipper, Logan Lynn, and Rica Shay to name a few–and that’s a very good thing for lovers of music everywhere. (You can check out the entire lineup here.) We had a chance to chat with local music-maker Logan Lynn, who also helps head up Q Center, just before he headed out on tour–we talked un-retiring retirement, tour preparation, the mass of talent assembled for this very good cause, and queer mental health services.
PQ Monthly: You’ve talked lots about the tour prep–and the rigorous schedule involved. Aside from working your ass off, what’s been the best, most rewarding thing about all this so far?
As many of you have already heard, we had back-to-back secret shows in Portland last weekend and filmed the whole thing so you could have a preview of what’s coming your way at this summer’s Queer Music Summer Tour Benefit for LGBTQ Mental Health Services & Suicide Prevention! Thanks so much to Kevin Forrest and Hippodrome Media for coming to the shows and making these for us.
We leave in just 5 days for the first leg of a month of travel, so I’ll be seeing you all very soon! In the meantime, here are some clips from my new live show:
