The Gay Place gets all tingly in her unmanned southerly territories.
PARDON OUR DUST So, we are struggling this year, dearies. Every turn your friendly neighborhood Gay Place takes, it seems is met with technological contrariness. We are just getting the Gay Place Blog back into a flow this week. Please check us out at www.austinchronicle.com/gayplaceblog. And check out our mascot Dandy's new 'do. He's a handsome pony, ain't he? Friend him on Facebook. We'll tell zir to keep it clean or at least clean up after zirself when the fagtabulous poots of rainbow Skittles get all over everything: www.facebook.com/dandyunicorn
PANTIES IN WADS Here's what's got us juiced this week: The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye; Oh Land; Otis Under Sky; Moby's Vegan Yacht; Diamond Rings; Hit So Hard; Christeene's "Bustin' Brown"; Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre on Tour; Katey Red; Big Freedia; Rusty Lazer; the Hook-Up (Thursday and Saturday); and a butt-load of on- and off-property gayness that makes us tingle in our southerly climes. Look through these listings for the little crown to indicate events that are Gay Place-endorsed. Also be sure to check out each of the three upcoming SXSW dailies. Gay Place gets a half-page in that mofo. And of course, the most tang-tingling news is of the mother ship landing – the mother ship to blow the bunghole out of all mother ships: GayBiGayGay, the annual all-day Fest closer that sends 'em home with big fat grins on their sated li'l gay faces (See Sunday). GBGG has new digs this year, a mere 1.5 miles north of the old digs, but check the listings to be sure you know where the action is.
The Gay Place loves you; keep those cards and letters comin’.
