Rumpshaker all-Queer music revue

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Rumpshaker
July 8
Chop Suey


The all-Queer music revue Rumpshaker has arrived. On July 8, Qulture Qreative, Fringe Presents, and Angry Boy Productions held Rumpshaker at Chop Suey (1325 E. Madison) in Seattle's Capitol Hill Neighborhood. Local LGBT entertainers Queerbait!, Luxury A.K., Sh*t Damn Hella, Huggy B, and Amoania & The Shitbags performed live while DJ Nark spun tunes for a dance party.

Although Rumpshaker is relatively new, the party's promoters say that events like this are important because they are a 'conglomeration of all-over-the-map non-discriminate Queer culture, electro hip hop funk jam, with a dash of seedy nightclub glam, boiled and poured down a funnel of fun'

Local promoter (Qulture Qreative/Hard Times) LA Kendall and her business partner, David Richey, were among the first to start including LGBT musicians in their dance nights over a decade ago. "Recently, with all the great Queer music options to choose from, Kendall and Richey began talking about changing the formula and having the bands be the focus and the DJ be the support," organizers told SGN, "like a Queer concert."

Kendall approached Kevin (Nark magazine/Fringe) and Shannon (Angry Boy Productions/Sh*t Damn Hella) about producing and promoting Rumpshaker - a night dedicated to supporting and exposing all types of LGBT musicians.

Rumpshaker promoters told SGN that there is a diverse cross-section of Queer bands and performers, and there's a market for these types of shows "that is fairly untapped in this manner of presentation."

The group got together and decided to have the shows produced at Chop Suey. "Chop's a great place and they have a great staff, sound system, and the added bonus of being right on the walking tour of lovely Capitol Hill proper," they told SGN. "Most importantly, they support what we do."

Still, Rumpshaker officials say that the show will never be a typical, predictable event that will stick to one day, venue, or path. "Expect to see the unexpected," they said. "Keep an eye out, though, we do expect to do more shows at Chop Suey."

The group says they plan on tapping into other promoters, agents, and performers that are bent toward the Queer community and also tapping into touring acts so "we can be exposing local as well as touring acts to the Queer community in this forum." Their hope is that Rumpshaker will be a "place where non-competitive creative energy is expressed."

Currently, the promoters are looking for Queer performers - of any kind - for bookings. If you are interested in being a part of Rumpshaker, contact LA Kendall at lakendall@hitgirl.net, Shannon at angryboyproductions@gmail.com, or Kevin at narkmagazine@hotmail.com

"Support these events so that they can continue happening," the group said. "We want these events to be something that all Queers feel they can embrace on some level. Let's make art together!"
