The first all gay rock band, Pansy Division has been on the music scene for over a decade now. Started in San Francisco by guitarist Jon Ginoli, their new album Total Entertainment on Alternative Tentacle Records is a smooth combo of all their musical influences. To name a few: Cheap Trick, The Ramones, Neil Young, Galaxie 500, AC/DC, The Sonics, The Beatles, Tom Petty, Tones on Tail, Blondie, The Saints, The Muffs, The Smiths, XTC, The Go-Betweens and Motown.
Who can forget such tunes as 'Bunnies' and, perhaps the best title ever penned in the English language, 'Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond Of Each Other'?
Headlining the Addison Stage at Market Days on Sat. August 7
DJ Abel is as big a fan of Chicago as Chicago is of him. Whereas he tries to spin in the Windy City as much as possible, he spends most of his time here in the studio, where he has just finished his new record, Allegria.
One track on Allegria, 'La Puta 2004' is a triumphant re-release of his 1993 single with Ralphi Rosario (the 'Ros' of Rosabel) that put them on the map.
Abel and Ralphi had been friends long before they became a house powerhouse. After their first collaboration on 'La Puta', they continued to merge their Latin-inspired grooves to booty-shaking success. Catch their 10 hour set this weekend!
Spinning at Hydrate Sun. August 8, starting at 6 p.m. at the booth at Market Days, then moving inside and spinning until 4 a.m.
After performing for eight years, Power Infiniti has really dug in her heels as one of the elite circuit performers of our day. Power began as a club kid making the rounds when she met a manager at Salvation, a popular Miami club. From there, Power's caché has continued to grow.
Power Infiniti has been in Chicago for the past three years for The Hearts Foundation's Fireball parties, but this will be her first Market Days appearance.
Falcon Lifetime Exclusive Jason Adonis signed with Falcon Studios in January 2004 after completing a number of films for Jet Set. Jason was wooed to Falcon after he had left Jet Set and decided to leave the adult film industry. Falcon recognized that Jason had the qualities that they looked for in a Lifetime performer, so they pursued him for months before he signed on the dotted line. Jason is only the third Lifetime Exclusive in the 33 year history of Falcon Studios: he joins Tom Chase and Matthew Rush in that distinction.
Jason hails from the Chicago area where he grew up with his brother Tristan Adonis, who also happens to be a Falcon Exclusive. Catch their Falcon debut in Taking Flight, due out September 22.
Appearing at the Cupid's Treasures/ LeatherSport booth at Market Days Sat. August 7 and at Sound-Bar Sun. August 8.
