If you were so inclined, you could make it a Blowoff weekend, not just a Blowoff Saturday night
. Grab a hairy muscle college stud Friday night, and then the usual hairy muscle daddy Saturday night -- doesn't that sound like intergenerational fun? The hitch -- you know there'd be a hitch, didn't you? -- Friday night you'll have to head to the land of Thomas Jefferson and the University of Virginia
, some three hours from D.C. But Charlottesville
is charming, especially this time of year. And Club R2
is smack-dab (or in this case, smack-down) in the middle of the town's charming pedestrian-only street mall downtown, which you can cruise before or after you cruise the club
. Read all about the plans in C'Ville
, where Bob "Bear My Soul" Mould
and Rich "Bear It All" Morel
will christen swanky straight club R2's new weekly gay Friday night party. It's not clear if the Charlottesville Blowoff
will become monthly, as it is in D.C., or bi-monthly, as it is in New York. Guess it depends on how the M men rock Monticello.
Of course, Saturday night there's Blowoff here at our town's celebrated 9:30 Club. And before you hit that, why not hop a few blocks over, to check out two other out rockers perform? Local grappler Tom "Folksy" Goss and inky stud Eric "Rocksy" Himan will strum and sing at Solly's U Street Tavern. Should be a night of a gay indie-music fan's dream...
