Logan Lynn Summer Tour Stories, Parts 1 and 2: San Francisco and Los Angeles! (PHOTOS)

Logan Lynn LIVE at Beatbox in San Francisco (2013)

I’m back in Portland for a few days midway through our summer tour and figured I would tell you things about the first leg of shows!

The tour kicked-off in San Francisco at Beatbox on Friday night and was great. I heard after the show that one of my all-time musical heroes Bob Mould had asked the tour organizer the day before what time I was performing and then he came to the show! So awesome.

Of course, this also means that Bob got to see me knock both of my bottles of water off of a stool and onto the stage during a song, where they began pouring out into a rat’s nest of wires surrounding me. In an act of quick-thinking, fancy footwork, I repurposed my green LaCoste face towels (which Gino and I use to keep the sweat from blinding us on stage) and used one foot to mop it up while I sang the opening of our next song. It was pretty special. Here’s to not getting publicly electrocuted on stage in SF!

Here are some photos from that show:

Logan Lynn Interviewed by PQ Monthly This Week! Read it Here.

Logan Lynn Summer Tour 2013 - Photo by Rowan Wren copy

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 DipperLogan 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?

Logan Lynn: Yeah, it’s a lot of work to make a tour happen, and I have Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn Interview On Manhunt.com This Week – Summer Tour, Christian Bigotry, and Bears…Oh My!

Logan Lynn Interview On Manhunt Daily (June 2013)

I was interviewed by Manhunt.com this week for Manhunt Daily. We chatted about my upcoming summer tour, Christian bigotry, and tall hairy dudes. Read it on the very N.S.F.W Manhunt site HERE, or just keep reading below for the transcript:

From Manhunt.com: (June 26th, 2013)

Logan Lynn’s musical career has been a roller coaster ride from the very beginning. From his first professional music effort at 17, a mixtape, that ended up causing him to stay off the stage due to stage fright, to climbing back into the spotlight with a little help from The Dandy Warhols, his passion for writing music has made him a favorite of the Logo Network, and now he’s headlining theAccidental Bear Queer Music Tour. He took a moment to answer some questions about what it’s all been about.

Manhunt:  Speaking of Accidental Bears – do you consider yourself an otter, a cub, a bear or none of the above?

Logan Lynn: I mean, I’m a tall, hairy guy who likes hairy guys. Does that make me one of those? If so, I’m good with it… So long as it doesn’t limit me somehow.

What advantages do you think you gain from being a musician who is gay?

My “Burning Your Glory” video was one of the first ever shown by Logo when MTV first created the channel, and they went on to air every music video I released from 2008 through 2012 before their weekly video countdown show “NewNowNext” was canceled – 7 videos in all, each time being broadcast into something like 26 million homes. I hosted the show twice, was on commercials for the network constantly for 2 years, my video “Feed Me To The Wolves” was named one of the “Top 10 Videos of the Year” by Logo, and I did countless events and interviews by way of that relationship in the years since. That kind of cultural visibility just simply would not have happened had I not been an OUT musician.

Logan Lynn’s Upcoming July 11th Show In Portland Featured In PQ Monthly’s Print Edition This Month

Logan Lynn photo by Zaq Banton

Portland’s queer paper PQ Monthly featured our July 11th Portland show in this month’s issue (which just hit stands this past week). Here’s what they had to say:

“The Accidental Bear Queer Music Benefit Tour brings this big gay family together: local legend Logan Lynn, Chicago’s Big Dipper, Conquistador, vagabond darling Rica Shay, and Darling Gunsel. Proceeds from the tour go to LGBTQ Mental Health Services and Suicide Prevention at Q Center (PDX), LA’s Gay and Lesbian Center, Pride Foundation (Seattle), Ali Forney Center (NYC), and Stonewall Project (SF). The more money raised, the more queers helped. The night your sonic dreams come true, and you helped so many people!”

Thank you, PQ Monthly! We are looking forward to seeing you next month.
