THE GAY OLE OPRY

by

Wondering where all the queer country artists have gone? Back down — or over — to Brooklyn, of course! Tonight the borough will host a veritable hootenanny of LGBT crooners at Littlefield’s first annual Big Gay Country Holiday party. Four foot-stompin’, hand-clappin’, whiskey-shootin’ acts take the stage: Karen and the Sorrows unleash their haunting ballads of love and loss; Kings perform their political-humor-laced tunes; and Small Talk yodel us on home. Indie folk-pop songstress Julia Weldon headlines, showcasing her vulnerable honesty as much as her brash, intensely American charisma. So put on your Stetson hat, or your Santa hat, and help reclaim the country genre.
