At one recent show during Justin Vivian Bond‘s long run at Joe’s Pub, the venerable performance artist explained that in order to preserve sperm before beginning estrogen treatment, V (Bond’s preferred pronoun) donated some gorgeous, talented seed to a local sperm bank. We’ve been trying to find a polite way of asking Mx. Bond how we can get a hold of some of that stuff ever since. In the meantime, we’ll make do with letting V’s voice inside us at tonight’s concert for V’s first full-length solo album Dendrophile, a largely folk record featuring original tracks and some favorite covers, including a duet with Beth Orton on the Carpenters’ “Superstar,” and Bambi Lake’s “The Golden Age of Hustlers.” Doveman shares the bill.
