lovely lovely house show at camp out last night with onsind, daniel versus the world, raytex horse whisperers, hugh sillitoe & the casual terrorist. it was nice to know that other people are struggling with social awkwardness, being queer, overcoming heartbreak, being mad/brave and attempting hopefulness. daniel even did a cover of lana del ray’s video games. genius.

so there’s a few things happening to cheer up your january if yr a queer in newcastle…

“Teasy Does It is proud to host an evening of songs from the amazingly talented, leeds based musician, Beccy Owen.

Beccy Owen is a Welsh-born singer/songwriter. She grew up in Yorkshire and became a musician by accident after a diversion on the road to becoming a clown. …Joking aside, Owen is a formidable and open-hearted talent, arming herself with an arsenal of eccentric, literate and heartfelt pop songs that lead her into battle against fat-cat-pop-machine-mediocrity.

Described by the NME as a “delinquent Carole King,” Beccy’s latest artistic statement of intent is the self released long player ‘Down With Gravity.’ Produced by Joe Rusby and recorded at the Pure Records farmhouse in Penistone, Yorkshire, her third album features performances from world-class luminaries such as Kate Rusby, Peter Tickell and Rachael McShane, and is hailed as “a stunning collage of tender romanticism, off-kilter harmonies and disarming rhythms” (Alt Vinyl).

The entry for this show will be £5, but you’ll be pleased to know it’s a BYOB type of affair!”

DIVINE TRASH present JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF URANUS @ STAR AND SHADOW
FACEBOOK EVENT

“Divine Trash is going from the outer limits of space to the depths of bad taste as we go BARBARELLA, with Roger Vadim’s hymn to young Jane Fonda, set amongst the sexiest of galaxies.

On the decks is THE VILE MISS PEARS with punk, rockabil…ly, surf and trash, followed by the UK’s only transgender punk band, WOMEN IN REVOLT.

WOMEN IN REVOLT
Described by The Crack as a ‘transgender punk threat’ WOMEN IN REVOLT are a polysexual mixture of ‘gender politics and extreme camp’, mixing influences from John Waters, New York Dolls, Jayne Mansfield and Emma Goldman.

THE VILE MISS PEARS
Our DJ, THE VILE MISS PEARS is fast gathering a loyal following for her collection of danceable punk, trash and rockabilly ephemera from the margins of good taste. Take one part Rodney Bingenheimer, a dash of Poison Ivy, throw in some Kim Fowley and dress as the beautiful Bride of Frankenstein. Oh Miss Pears!!

BARBARELLA
And what can we say about BARBARELLA?

In this notorious film version of the popular French comic strip by Jean-Claude Forest, Jane Fonda plays a sexy yet innocent space-age heroine in the year 40,000 A.D. who never gets herself into a situation that requires too much clothing.

Barbarella embarks on a mission to find a peace-threatening young scientist named Duran Duran (Milo O’Shea) by order of the president of Earth. En route, she’s attacked by killer dolls, is strapped into a contraption known as the Excessive Machine, and falls in love with a blind angel. Also starring the wonderful David Hemmings, and Keith Richards’ main squeeze, Anita Pallenberg, Barbarella is THE great camp sci-fi classic.

DRESS APPROPRIATELY! BEST DRESSED PRIZES!”

sounds fun, will even have the pleasure of melanie maddison for company. what a treat!

SATURDAY 21 JANUARY @ TEASY DOES IT 7PM – 11PM
LADY GARDEN

“A scintillating suburban alternative for ladies looking to get lost in the Lady Garden…

Live music, DJs, adult fancies and parlour games.

£3

BYOB

For women who like women + fun loving friends”

Really looking forward to this gem and katie are good good people and there will be a big gay pub quiz. Time to start finding each other and having some fun I reckon. Come and say hello hi!

SATURDAY 28TH JANUARY @ STAR AND SHADOW
JOSIE LONG

“Josie Long is back again with her fifth solo show. Come along! This is a show about feeling newly tormented by the world around you and about optimism and despair. But that sounds more serious than it is. It’ll be a silly, manic round up of all kinds of things. It will probably have a play in it where I play every one of the Bronte’s too, if that’s your bag? The show has two clear aims:

1.Fight some sort of a cool gang or something.
2.Fight injustice.”

Love Josie Long but this has now totally sold out, so best get your volunteer on down the star and shadow (always a rad thing to do) or there’s her other show at the waiting room in eaglecliffe (near darlington).
