Scissor Sisters

"The downtown music scene will get an extra dose of glam this spring at a reading of a new musical written by the actress and comedian Sandra Bernhard, the downtown drag artist Justin Bond, and the Scissor Sisters lead singer Jake Shears.

The musical, called "Arts and Crafts," has a book by Ms. Bernhard and Mr. Bond, and music by Mr. Bond, Ms. Bernhard, Lance Horne and Mr. Shears, who is also one of the authors of the new musical adaptation of Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City" books, which opens in San Francisco in May.

Gordon Greenberg will direct two performances of "Arts and Crafts" on March 7 at Joe's Pub." [NY Times]

Tickets are on sale for the March 7th show - two of them actually (early and late).

Scissor Sisters, who are playing Bonnaroo (which went on sale today), and who recently DJ'd the Museum of Natural History, and who kick off a tour with Lady Gaga in Atlantic City tonight, played Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ last night (2/18). A set of pictures from that show continues below...

Really disappointing comments which really don't cover your members homophobia

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2011 7:21 PM

It's so bizarre seeing homophobes in the comments on BV, because most of the bands that get coverage on here are against the bigotry that's displayed here.

Indie's a pretty gay friendly genre of music. I know P4K didn't tell you trolls that, but fuck off.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2011 7:43 PM

These are not homophobic comments there just pointing out the stereotypical diva boy sailor hat leather bound gay man. Not all gay men are like that so dont cry wolf.

Yeah, that's right. Now, if the Scissor Sisters kept talking about how they liked to fuck chicks and smoke weed, I would not hate them. Know what I'm sayin', bro? Chyea-chyea!

Thats about 1 percent of the dumb metal bands on here you may be referring to.
It surely isnt the majority of bands on here that talk about asinine things or shove their sexuality in your face.

Now you go shine your pleather coat and chaps there Stefan.


Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2011 9:14 PM

eh.. I wouldn't say that they're throwing their sexuality in people's faces any different than a band of heterosexual men. their lyrics are kind of gender and sexuality neutral, they never flat out talk about fucking members of the same sex, they just all dress in an eccentric way. who the fuck cares? they're not going out of their way to say HEY GUYS, WE'RE GAY. just don't look if you don't want to see it.

I also wouldn't say the comments above this are homophobic, but they're definitely coming from people that aren't comfortable with their sexuality.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2011 9:14 PM

Wrong. Its just so damn stereo typical and Im sure the people pointing out this diva, leather clad, predictable act are fine with themselves and dont care for ridiculous music if it was about the opposite sex.

Thats not eccentric, its a guy with fake leather pants on prancing around. Look at picture five and tell me this isnt the making of a great skit for Scott Thompson to do poking fun at caricature's.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2011 9:24 PM

I don't care either way, they look like they're having fun, so whatever, BUT if we're going to talk about bands shoving things in people's faces, can we please hate on Best Coast?

could not agree more. and really, i can't stand the scissors sisters. their music does nothing for me. but the comments over the past year it seems have gone waaaaay off the deep end with not only hatred and homophobic notions, but also stupid to be stupid like the bs about hummus, etc. it's unfortunate because the people involved with putting this site together do a great job. it's sad that so much is reflected in the poor comments. way to go guys and gals ... keep it classy!

Totally off topic but the last time I saw Scissor Sisters , there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2011 11:27 PM

Yes I guess so. Answered my question. What the hell does the three year old idiot hummus guy have to do with this??

Where are the homophobic comments?????
People are just poking fun at the caricature of these leather clad gay men. You can expect the metal crowd maybe to be homophobic morons but thats a given and has nothing to do with this article.

Again there musically OK, but its funny seeing them prance around in their little costumes which is a major stereotype of the gay scene and that doesnt equal hate at all. You should be able to laugh at yourself a bit.
God knows the fem men gossip like little girls and talk crap about others. Thats no secret.

Whoa whoa whoa, gay still has a literal meaning and that is what we are referring to with the SS. Nobody is saying they are a homosexual band. We are just saying they are too gay(too happy). Society takes no offense to happiness(Elton John/Rock Hudson/ Tom Cruise) but full on gayness (Hanson/Back Street Boys/ Bone Thugs and Harmony) is what the BV bloggers are diabolically opposed to.

What a ridiculous notion. You do realize other cities have large gay scenes too right?
Like Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, Minneapolis, and Kansas city. There just generally less ridiculous.

Its completely fine if the guy dresses effeminately, but it just looks stereotypical so its funny. Like the Village people.
You know like when SNL or Scott Thompson from Kids in Hall does a skit poking fun at the gay scene.

hey, 11:10, notice that person said A city? not a specific city and it's 'THEY'RE'. if you're going to troll at least be grammatically correct.

Okay. So what's the problem?

Looks like the problem is people being defensive and crying wolf.

I think the REAL problem here with all of you (gays and straight) is that none of you are eating enough hummus.

No, the real problem here is that the phrase 'crying wolf' was used so many times, but never correctly.

cry wolf-
Fig. to cry or complain about something when nothing is really wrong. To raise a false alarm.

Interesting how a review and photos of a gig I actually attended has turned into a comment thread about how they hate the band and if they "flaunting" sexuality down out throats. This band is not heavliy promoted on the air and only recently has made a few TV appearances. I am a married staight female and I just plain and simply love the dance factor of SS. I don't enjoy "pop" dance music that is written by someone other than the performer..and in fact even though I know the lyrics to the songs I don't read into them as I am dancing and singing along. They are fun, they portray a good time and that's what I got last Friday! Shame that people feel the need to try and make it something it completely wasn't. I get that it may not be someones cup of tea, and that is why I am confused why someone would take the time to be here in a negative fashion..my life is too busy for that sort of thing but I guess yours isn't! Dance on SS!!!!!!!!!!
