Whew! Last weekend was crazy bananas. Between it being my 30th (eh, hem) birthday last Thursday and partyin' it up with the gang at Pony that night, busting out jams atStonewall FC's annual Gay Prom Friday night, and playin' at Lezzbook's first ever event(the 1st Annual DJ Smackdown) on Saturday, I can honestly say I was wiped. Oh yeah, I had my sister from Arizona visiting as well. So this explains why I am just writing up my experience of the Lezzbook party today - nearly one week after. I was tired and needed some time to recoup, which lead to being buried and needing to catch up. Excuse me for being human. Anyway...about the Lezzbook party....
Full disclosure requires me to be completely forthright. Sometimes I don't gel with the Lesbians. Yes, I know that I am one, but I still happen to somehow find myself mostly with gay boys as close friends and having the most fun playing for very mixed crowds. This isn't to say I don't like Lesbians, because god knows I do. Clearly. Lesbians tend to wanna hear Hip Hop, and I don't play Hip Hop as a general rule. Lesbians can never seem to just enjoy the music and get into it. They generally ruin the experience of DJing for them through repeated requests as if you as a DJ are some kind of jukebox as opposed to an artist. Anyway, the long and the short of it is, I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into with this Lezzbook event. However, the money was going to the It Gets Better Project. How do you say no to that?
I can happily say that this event way exceeded my expectations. We arrived early and the place was already filling up (at 8:30PM!). I was paid within an hour of arriving (and before I even played my set). Even with a few sound issues at the beginning of my set (which were easily worked out), I had a BLAST playing for the crowd - without one complaint or request, THANKYOUVERYMUCH. There were gorgeous Go-Go's (which included some of Seattle's hottest Burlesque celebutantes) as well as a hot-ass boy, also dancing (yes a boy, at a LESBIAN event), who danced with his schlong fully extended in some sort of special pleather undies. I don't think the Ginger Girlgot any photos of that - otherwise I would totally share.
Lisa Pittman, the godmother of all things lesbionic in Las Vegas was the headliner. It was nice to see her. The last time I saw her I ended up with two black eyes and a broken nose. Hey. It was Vegas. Gimme a break! Her set was amazing, sans the Amy Winehouse remix she started to play (to a very disapproving crowd), which she quickly recovered from. There were cast members from "The Real L Word" in attendance as well, which had a good portion of the crowd over the moon with excitement. They seemed nice enough, but I don't watch the show so I was totally out of the loop. Me being the drag hag that I am, I was most excited about the presence of and performances by Lily Armani. My first time officially working with her. It was also, in a word, AWESOME.
Oh, one more thing about this Lezzbook event that set it apart....it wasn't exclusive to WOMEN. It was completely open to the boys as well. Quite a refreshing change of pace, in my opinion.
Honestly folks, I can't say enough about my experience playing at this event, forLezzbook (and founder Beth Darr). It was such a great night! My advice? The next time they have an event, check it out, AND, if you're a Lez who likes to network, go sign up at Lezzbook.com.
