|Atlanta queer band flexes its giggle box electrosex stylings on NYE|

Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve yet? Well, here’s your chance to win a couple tickets to the Le Sexoflex show at the Drunken Unicorn featuring DJ Homosexual (aka Kyle Keyser, former mayoral candidate and founder of Atlantans Together Against Crime) and La Chansons. More on how to win tickets in a minute.
For those unfamiliar with Le Sexoflex, it’s fair to say their music and live shows are outrageous. Really. Just plain outrageous.
With songs like “Twincest” and “Poop On Face,” the band’s music can also be a bit overwhelming. But the members of Le Sexoflex say they simply want to entertain and ensure the crowd watching them has a great time.
And what better way to bring in the New Year with “Nude Year’s Eve 2011” with “the sexiest band on the planet” from the gay mecca of the South — Atlanta — or as the band prefers to dub the city, “Buttlanta.”
“Buttlanta is where are hard-on is,” says Princess Genius in a phone interview, as her bandmates — Peep Peep, Miss Lady Flex and Vas D — agree wholeheartedly.
And what better year to hold a Le Sexoflex New Year’s bash then the year that ends with “two boners to round it out,” Miss Lady Flex points out.
The band has made a splash at numerous local venues, such as Mary’s as well as at Mondo Homo, and is bringing in 2011 with a concert featuring many new songs they’ve added to their repertoire.
And while their songs may touch on touchy subjects, such as “Twincest,” the band is quick to point out they are a band that combines music and comedy to bring about an open discussion on their favorite subject — sex.
“We call our genre giggle box electrosex … it’s about opening up a dialogue about sex,” says Miss Lady Flex.
And while twincest is a real issue, it’s not necessarily endorsed by the band. For them, the song came about after thinking about, well, wanting to have sex with yourself.
“It came out of a narcissistic notion,” says Peep Peep. “Really [the song is about] you fucking yourself. Not your twin.”
Because, the band says, if you would not want to have sex with yourself, who else would?
The band has become a favorite for crowds seeking an edge to their music as well as funny lyrics such as, “You’ve got poop on your face.”
This song was written as the band was talking about embarrassing moments and seeing someone with a brown stain on their face. Then, what if that brown stain just happened to be poop?
The bandmates proudly proclaim themselves as all being queer as well.
“It’s about the freedom of sex — queer is empowering,” says Peep Peep.
What to expect besides songs to dance to with the opening band La Chansons and DJ Homosexual playing after the New Year is rung in by Le Sexoflex? Plenty of glitter and plenty of stage performance.
“We will look as fucking hot as ever and we want to encourage everyone to come as hot as ever,” says Princess Genius. And if some of the antics are too, well, discomforting, it’s really OK to just watch as well.
And why should people come to the show?
“It’s the only Nude Year’s Eve in the city — isn’t that reason enough?” says Vas D.
And, of course, there’s romance in the air when the New Year rolls in at midnight. Or something like that.
“Come prepared to make out,” Peep Peep says.
OK. Now — to win two tickets to the show, name the specific hamburger Le Sexoflex sings about in “Poop on Face” and also the restaurant it comes from. Be the first person to respond to [email protected] and you get two tickets. Good luck!
