Enough is Enough
Some rocker boys, however, need a quick education in talking to girls and their gay companions. Wednesday, Joyce invited me to join her at the Granddaddy/Saves The Day double header. I went along, ‘coz it’s always fun hanging out with Joyce and indie rock shows always make me giddy. There’s just something really special about live music. The way the bass hits your gut, the way your just cannot help but tap your toes.
So, this very-cute fella starts flirting with Joyce and we had to quickly establish that I was not her date. His ding-dong friend all of a sudden chimes in, “So what does a gay guy get out of being here? She buying you drinks?”
Somewhat dumb-founded I replied that I enjoyed a variety of music and concluded, “It’s not all Donna Summer, honey!"
So this post goes out to Ms. Summer, Babs and the other sound pioneers who rock my world, and to women like Laetitia who share a special fondness for disco, herself.Posted April 9, 2004 02:49 PM
