I am very excited about this party- it’s an insanely good line up
of some of my favorite people, and I am so ready to dance!
Having Golem and the Minor Mishap Marching Band on the bill
is so fantastic- I love bringing the balkan and the brass..
..And then there’s the booty bounce!
I am officially obsessed- there’s some amazing shit happening
down in New Orleans, and it’s coming over here!
My dear friend J. (aka DJ Rusty Lazer) turned me on to NOLA Bounce
(and Sissy Bounce especially) awhile back,
and he’s been out spreading the word far and wide..
Check out his writing about it here:
Popping My New Orleans Sissy Bounce Cherry!
and here:
Sissy Bounce Sweetheart’s Ball
I really loved this bit from him also:
“I hope that people say the thing they feel the most
when they come to anything I’m involved with is a sense that,
no matter what’s happening on stage or otherwise,
they feel free to do whatever they want
without any tingling judgment sensations.
It’s probably why I like Sissy Bounce so much.
To bring your overwhelmingly queer style out
to a pretty brutal town like New Orleans
and have it be accepted at all is testament enough
to your power as a performer…but to transcend that acceptance
and actually begin to redefine what a genre like Bounce is…
well that’s something else altogether.
And then to take that one step further
and be generally indifferent to the boy/girl dichotomy
by declaring yourselves “sissies” (and nothing more)
is pure Dirty South gold to me.”

Check out our pal Lefty’s
Sissy Bounce Mixtape!
if you want an introduction to the music..
His girl Miss Alison wrote an article about
Sissy Bounce for the Gambit
that’s definitely
worth reading as well..

I so wish I had been at this show..
I love the part near the end when J. drags
Miss Altercation up on stage to show what
she can do! She’s coming to Austin to teach
us all some moves, y’all! I’m so excited-
learning to booty bounce is one of my
all time number one goals. I have so
much awe and respect for those I know
who have mastered the extremely precise
muscle isolation required to make it work!

Sissy Nobby and the Rumpshakers always put me in a good mood!

Just to give you an idea of the kind of spectacle Minor Mishap is capable of..
I can’t wait!
