This is my love letter to all the queer musicians out there, making art and kicking ass. If there's an artist you think I should know about, please let me know, I love new music! (I also reblog/post on general queer and trans stuff, radical news, and instances when the world is fucked, and when it isn't!)

 

The Shondes-“Nights Like These”

The Shondes have posted a few live videos from their tour last month with Against Me! (which omg, I still cannot get over how awesome that is). This particular video was recorded at the Town Ballroom in Buffalo, and I saw Less Than Jake there once, so that’s why I decided to post this one, but check out their channel for a bunch more!

Recent full length set from Self Defense Family filmed in Warsaw. Diggin their jams.

Circle Takes The Square recorded live by NPR

NPR is on the ball this week! CTTS is not a queer band by any stretch of the imagination, but I love them immensely, and they played their first show in over three years earlier this week (with pg. 99!) and they’re releasing their first album in seven years in a couple of months. CTTS will always hold a really special place in my heart, even if I don’t listen to them as much as I used to, and I just to spread the joy.
