For over four years, Mattachines been packing the dance floor and overflowing onto the sidewalk at the West Village bar Juliusthe very bar where members of the Mattachine Society, the countrys first gay-rights, pinko-commie organization, demanded a drink in 1964 to fight against the citys no service for known homosexuals law. If not for their Sip-In, there wouldn't have been a Stonewall. Now, 48 years later, those men are honored once a month in Julius by scores of fancy-dressed folks careening into each others arm to the songs of queer yesteryear and beyond. Like John says, ALL music is dance music!!
Last summer, MATTACHINE hit the road with smash gigs in San Francisco, Portland, LA and Denver, promoting ethical homosexual culture across the land. The 2012 "We Love You So Much We Don't Know Who We Are Anymore" tour kicked off this Spring in New Orleans, Houston and Austin, and now the gang is coming back to San Francisco! Here's your chance to be an early-era, pinko-commie, downtown homo, demand your drink, and careen into someone elses arms.
