Performing on the Pride by the Beach Main Stage!!!!!

So five gay musicians walk into a gay bar playing only AC/DC. Out walks GayC/DC. Not a cover band. Not a tribute band. But some hybrid of both of those, with a healthy dose of Alice Cooper, Rip Taylor, G.G. Allin, Dame Edna, and of course those boys from Down Under. Are Chris, Steve, Karl, Brian, and Glen long lost cousins to Bon, Angus, Cliff, Phil, Brian and Malcolm? We think so. We think AC/DC runs in everyone’s DNA, and that everyone has a reaction when they hear those familiar chords blare from a guitar amp. Your body starts to keep the beat along with the band, and your neck starts to bang back and forth as your ears take the brunt of the decibels. Yup. It’s a GayC/DC show, and your bound to get covered in glitter, boa feathers, silly string, and some other substances that we haven’t gotten the test results back yet. You sing along. You know every word. And your eyes can’t erase the images that you see on the stage in front of you. It’s a GayC/DC show, and you don’t want it to end.
