Pansy Division lived up to my lofty expectations of an out and proud punk band. They cruised through songs that ranged from silly crass numbers about sex to issue-centered songs about how hurtful it is to hear lame stuff called “gay.” (I’m referencing the song “That’s so gay” off their new record of the same title.) Midway through the set the bass player disappeared and came back with a short sparkly dress on and then laughed at me from the stage for running over to get some money shots. They only have a few days left on this tour, so try and check them out if you can.

Jun 25 2009 @ Velvet Lounge, Washington, DC
Jun 26 2009 @ Insubordination Fest, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD
