The Flesh Hungry Dog Show All Star Finale
On Friday, May 4th 2012, The Flesh Hungry Dog Show gaily celebrates 7 year of fulfilling its mission to spread the gospel of live rock and roll, burlesque, variety, and general musical mayhem for queers and friends in Chicago. This year’s anniversary show and FINALE to the 7 year running monthly event will feature Flesh Hungry Dog Show favorites Joan Crawford-inspired rockers The Joans, the return to the stage of Jinx Titanic, The Handcuffs and special guests, The Revelettes.
“an uber-inclusive, alterna-queer, mini-rock extravaganza” and “possibly the most diverse scene in the city.”Time Out Chicago
“one of the musical underground’s most vibrant and diverse club nights”Jim DeRogatis, Chicago Sun-Times
Chicago-based band The Joans, formed in 2007, are a pop band that combine elements of old school new wave, glam, and electronic dance grooves to form their own unique sound. They have appeared live throughout Chicago including Chicago Pridefest and Halsted Market Days, among others and were honored to play the legendary Folsum Street Fair (San Francisco) and to open for Natasha Bedingfield, Cyndi Lauper and Joan Rivers at Milwaukee Pridefest 2008-2010.
The Joans were voted favorite rock band by Chicago Free Press readers in 2009 and were named best debut CD by Windy City Times. Their video Mad at the Dirt has appeared on NewNowNext and The Click List on the Logo Network and caught the attention of gay music icon Boy George who called The Joans “brilliant”. They recently produced their 2nd video, Joan Crawford Goes to Hell, and are working on new material for a future online release. We Are The Joans, their debut CD, was released in September 2009.
See The Joans in Milwaukee for a gala event!
