Advocate, Gay.com Get Musical At SXSW

It’s gonna be a gay old time down at SXSW this month!

The kids over at Gay.com and The Advocate are seizing the musical moment staging their own aural celebration: Rock Out!

The event will showcase some of the States’ most notable up-and-coming LGBT acts, including Tom Goss, Alyx Price, Coyote Grace, the mono-monikered Adrianne and Eric Himan (pictured), whose new single, “Little Blue Boy,” we’ve included below.

The festivities go down on March 13 from 8pm-2am at Rain on 4th (217 West 4th Street, Austin, TX) and Olican Harry’s (211 West 4th Street Austin, TX). Be there or – well, read all about it in The Advocate‘s April 22nd issue.

We’re sure Rock Out’s lawyers would like us to inform you that Rock Out is in no way affiliated with SXSW. The gays are just capitalizing on the concentration of music lovers, as they should!

      Where are the getting the money to have promotions – they are losing tens of millions a year and owe the stockholders money. Is this what they do to keep their head afloat during their heads on the chopping block?

      They need to keep up appearances – otherwise how would they look attractive to their new owner? They do not care about their employees and are laying off anyone who gets in their way. Chip was one of the best employees they had on the promotions side and they axed him when the going got tough. Watch OUT!!!

      I heard that they have already gone to a monthly to save money. What day will the issue be coming out now?

      Advocate switched to such cheap paper that I am using it as a dental dam with my GF. The magazine has turned into shit that hs nothing to do with anyone or anything that affects our lives

      I love Eric’s music, and LGBT musicians deserve support, but really. They just reported millions in losses, their stock tanked yet again, and they’re having a party?

      I’m seeing those violinists on the Titanic.

      Fortunately, artists like Himan are independent and make their own money, so they won’t sink like the merger monster will.
