Believe it or not, Kansas City's SSION is making their Empty Bottle debut tonight and we’re damn pumped to welcome these trans-everything rockers to our stage. SSION has gained notoriety over the past decade not only for their gay-disco-meets-punk-rock stylings, but also for their outrageous live shows and videos, frequently featuring dancers, backup singers and an array of weirdness including comically cheap home-made props, supersized video projections, over-the-top costumes and makeup, and a visual sense revealing a mix between the twisted humor of Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Madonna’s Blond Ambition. The 2012 recent release, Bent out via Dovecoat, sees SSION stepping outside of their comfort zone to make something that is cleaner and friendlier, while maintaining all of the ridiculousness you’ve come to expect from this pop powerhouse. HOUSE OF LADOSHA is a beyond over-the-top, crunked-out gay rap duo who describes their music as “CUNT” on their Facebook page and whose style combines club-banging production with raunchy, sex-laced lyricism that sounds kind of like blowing up a strip club. They’re on tour with SSION this month and are we guarantee they’ll bring an insane amount of ridiculousness to this already wild party. If you couldn’t tell, we’re ready to party and we’re excited to host the self-described “bear of a gay rapper,” BIG DIPPER. Known throughout Chicago for his playful antics, catchy beatz, smart lyricism and humor, BIG DIPPER “makes everyone wanna shake their ass and bounce their dicks.” TEEN WITCH FAN CLUB will be spinning the best in twisted pop all night and this is going to be the best Tuesday party of the fall, so don’t miss out.
