“Hipsters, next time stick around even if your friends don’t. San Francisco fags and those who love them elevate MCB to cult-band status. I don’t make history, but I dig it.” – Guardian Blog
Look, we’re not pointing any fingers, but you should listen to the lady. Although, actually, we’re also not sure what she’s on about. There were people everywhere and we want to personally thank all of you for coming out a few weeks ago and having a good time. Well, we wish we could thank each of you personally, but this post is going to have to do.
We, as in World Famous in SF, were super stoked to have The Passionistas, BRIDEZ, and Girls sharing the stage with Mon Cousin Belge that evening and all everybody done made us proud. It was like showing up to a party and running into all of your friends there unexpectedly. The Passionistas greeted everyone with champagne, BRIDEZ are that loud drunk friend that you actually want at your party, Girls invited us into their bedroom for something a little more intimate, and MCB… well, we don’t know that we’ve ever been to a party that has had something like MCB in attendance. At least, not a party we’d talk about in polite company.

Don’t worry if you just couldn’t make it, we believe in second chances! Mon Cousin Belge will be playing on October 4th at TransAm, a monthly gay rock ‘n roll spectacle! If you still need some convincin’ before coming to check out The Belge, check out these new reviews of Quelle Horreur:
“in a city that’s got such a great history for campy, subversive and wonderfully queer art and music it’s actually kind of sad to say that it’s becoming more rare to find a really good charged and dazzling homo-rock band around these parts lately. Luckily Mon Cousin Belge have been filling that void quite nicely.” – Aquarius Records
“This is hard core singing folks…Mahalia Jackson gone bad…Bessie Smith bleeding out in a hospital E.R.” – Whisperin And Hollerin
