Logan Lynn at Stargayzer Festival Austin (2014)

My band boys and I are flying home from Austin to Portland as I type this (airplane WI-FI is soooooo rad) and we are filled with all kinds of love and inspiration from this past weekend of performing and watching shows at Austin Stargayzer Festival. Huge thanks to Brett Hornsby, Tisha Sparks, Shane Terenzi and everyone else working the festival — You were all such a joy to work with and should feel so proud of this beautiful thing you created!

COUNT US IN FOR NEXT YEAR FOR SURE!!! I’ll play for you kids anytime. That was a blast!

Extra big, filthy shout-outs to my darling CHRISTEENE for making me feel at home while we were in town, per her usual. Love her so much.

I’ve posted a few of the highlights from the weekend below, and there is video of our Sunday headliner performance en route as well (all thanks to filmmaker PJ Raval).

2014 ‘Mo-Wave Festival Wrap-Up

Logan Lynn Performing at Mo Wave Festival in Seattle (April 2014) at Chop Suey

Well, that was fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to our showcase this past Sunday at the 2014 Mo-Wave Festival in Seattle! At one point during the show, I looked out and saw Christeene, Justin Bond, Carletta Sue Kay and the boys from Night Cadet in the audience — which was really special.

I adored everyone I got to know this weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again soon! Thank you again to Mo-Wave organizers Jodi Ecklund, Markus Wilson and Seth Garrison for having us perform. Chop Suey recorded the audio and my drummer AC filmed our set, so there will be live clips sometime soon, which I will share. Here are some of the photo highlights to tide you over:

Queers Make Waves: Seattle’s 2014 ‘Mo-Wave Festival Offers Proof

Mo Wave on HuffPost Gay Voices

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 3/5/14)

The Pacific NW has no shortage of music festivals, and Seattle boasts some of the region’s largest and most well-attended. Starting a new festival in this neck of the woods is no small feat, but last year a handful of queers from the Emerald City did just that. The result was ‘Mo-Wave, Seattle’s queer music and arts festival — and it was a huge success.

Now in its second year, ‘Mo-Wave is back with another epic lineup featuring over 20 queer musicians (myself included) alongside dozens of visual and performance artists from all over the country, descending on stages at Chop Suey and PONY Seattle April 11-13.

Named “Best Festival” in its first year by Seattle Weekly, ‘Mo-Wave is unmatched in its eclectic blend of art and diverse queer culture. This mix immediately struck a chord with audiences, and one only has to take a quick glance at this year’s showcases to see that the ‘Mo-Wave crew are back at it. The festival’s mission to “showcase raw queer talent” through “a live and loud acknowledgment that our people do not fit into the simple stereotypes projected onto us by mainstream culture” is perhaps a tall order — but the team who pulled off year one has since grown, and they are about to top themselves. That’s right — I said “top themselves.” Chuckle all you want.

The 2014 lineup includes MX Justin V. Bond, Christeene, Zebra Katz, Carletta Sue Kay, Tacocat, Slava Mogutin, Logan Lynn, Ononos, Night Cadet, Boy Funk, Death Metals, Dust Moth, CZARL1NG (featuring Members of The Need/Grass Widow/Broken Water), Adé, Frederic Fleury, Narcissister, Jordan O’Jordan, L’Orth, Brian Kenny, LoneSome Leash, Tenderfoot, Half Breed, Sashay, Palo Verde, Spear and Magic Helmet, Frank Correa, Michael Horwitz, Your Heart Breaks, Belles Bent For Leather (Judas Priest Tribute), Queen Mookie, Amoania, Glitterbang, Hypnotits, Brian Brittigan, Zackary Drucker, MKNZ, Earl Dax, Crypts and more!

This week I caught up with ‘Mo-Wave creators Jodi Ecklund, Marcus Wilson and Seth Garrison to talk about Read the rest of this entry »

I am thrilled to announce that I will be performing at the 2014 Mo-Wave Festival in Seattle, voted “Best Festival” by Seattle Weekly last year. Mo-Wave runs from Friday, April 11th through Sunday, April 13th at Chop Suey. I suggest you attend all three days of shows, but if you have to pick just one day, I play at 4pm on Sunday.

Other acts on this year’s Mo-Wave bill include my all-time favorite supertalent Justin Vivian Bond and my dearest, troubled Christeene! Also performing are ZEBRA KATZ, Night Cadet, Tacocat, Earl Dax, Carletta Sue Kay, Belles Bent For Leather, Ononos, Boy Funk, HYPNOtits, CZARL1NG, Dust Moth, Spear & the Magic Helmet, Death Metals and sooooooo many other awesome queers!

About the album title: Section 175 was a provision of the German Criminal Code from 1871 to 1994, making homosexuality a crime. Over 140,000 people were convicted under the law. The Nazis broadened the law in 1935 and thousands died in concentration camps in the prosecutions that followed.

Today, all over the world, the fight for LGBTQ freedom and equality is not yet won. Your purchase of this record helps to ensure that the important work of this vital community resource continues.

Logan Lynn – Queer Celebrities Need Love, Too (Part 3: Pride Edition): An Interview With Fred Schneider, Chris March, Katastrophe, Hunx and His Punx, Kaia Wilson, Girl in a Coma, Christeene, Slava Mogutin, and Scott Matthews

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 6/15/2012)

Happy Pride Month, everybody! I am preparing to be neck-deep in an array of Portland’s gape ride festivities this coming weekend, then I’m flying east to New York City with my man to promote my new single, relax, and do Pride all over again. There is much to celebrate this year! For me, this time is about honoring our love, valuing who we are as people, and remembering the brave LGBT folks who have paved the way for us.

For this (third) round of “Queer Celebrities Need Love, Too” I chatted with pop legend Fred Schneider (The B-52s, The Superions), Bravo’s Chris March (Project Runway, Mad Fashion), transgender rapper Katastrophe, electrorock lovechild Seth Bogart (Gravy Train!!!!, Hunx and His Punx), queercore pioneer turned folk powerhouse Kaia Wilson (Team Dresch, The Butchies), Joan Jett‘s indie rock prodigies Girl in a Coma, self-proclaimed drag terrorist Christeene, artist/author Slava Mogutin, and English singer/songwriter Scott Matthews. They all answered the same five questions about what queer pride means to them:

1. If you could sum up in one word what it means for you to have queer pride, what would it be?

2. How will you celebrate pride this year?

3. Would you ever be in a relationship with someone who was still in the closet and planned on remaining that way?

4. In thinking about your own experience with relationships and just what exactly we are celebrating this Pride Month, please tell us about the first time in your life when you felt proud of who you are and of your queer love.

5. If that personal pride experience were adapted into a film, what song would be the soundtrack to that scene?

WATCH VIDEO OF LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY PERFORMING AT BLOW PONY “BASH BACK!” LAST SATURDAY NIGHT HERE!

Well, people…we did it again! Last Saturday night was the biggest Blow Pony ever. Thanks so much for coming out, y’all! My favorite part of the night was when Beth Ditto & Nathan “Brace Paine” Howdeshell (from Gossip) were dancing front and center during “Come Home”. Oh my God. Portland is my favorite.



For those of you who weren’t there (and for those of you who were, but couldn’t get past security to get upstairs for my set) below is a bit of what went down on stage with me and The Gentry.

Here are our opening 2 songs, “Smoke Rings” and “Bottom Your Way To The Top”. This was so fun.

…we went from there into “Come Home”…

…and “Write It On My Left Arm” (with a little bit of me preaching to the queers beforehand about telling all the gay hating fuckwads who think we should burn in hell for being ourselves to go screw)…

Big thanks to Airick and the Pony crew for having us play their Pride party and to Kaj-Anne Pepper, Jer Ber Jones, Christeene and all the resident Blow Pony DJs for being so cool and making things awesome with us! We had a great night.

THE PORTLAND MERCURY PICKS LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY’S BLOW PONY “BASH BACK” SHOW THIS WEEKEND AS THEIR CHOICE FOR THE NUMBER ONE PARTY TO BE AT FOR PDX PRIDE!

This week’s issue of The Portland Mercury is called “Secrets of Portland’s Queer Underground” and just hit stands today. On page 19 for their 2010 Top 10 Pride Picks they picked this Saturday’s Blow Pony “Bash Back” show (which I’m performing at with The Gentry) as their number one choice and had some really nice stuff to say about me!!!

For the local folks, go pick up a copy. Our show is on pages 19, 23, 27, & 33. For the rest of you, read what they had to say below the photo of the fag in the raccoon hat.

From “The Portland Mercury“: (6/17/2010 Issue)

‘2010 TOP 10 PRIDE PICKS’

1. Blow Pony Bash Back!

This is some sick-ass shit right here. Crazy-like electro-emo music meets tranny drag performance art meets boys and bears and ladyboys and ladies in a punch-drunk heap of heaving bodies. This is, quite simply, where you need to be Saturday night of Pride weekend, and here’s why: The infamous queer crazy party Blow Pony is basically exploding a glitter bomb inside Rotture for their “Bash Back” bash and second annual indoor/outdoor queer social, headlined by that scruffy-sexy angst-pop god Logan Lynn & The Gentry. Some of the other starlets stopping by: dragfucker Kaj-Anne Pepper and dance poppers Boy Joy, with Jer Ber Jones and Artemis Chase as your ringleaders for the night. This is the Pride party to end all Pride parties.

-Stephen Marc Beaudoin, The Portland Mercury

Blow Pony “Bash Back”: Rotture, 315 SE 3rd, Sat June 19th, 9pm, $5.

IN ADDITION TO THIS…

The Portland Mercury picked me as their “Band Of The Week” this week. You can check it out online HERE or via the photo below. Pretty fun, right?
