The Birthday Party is a unique amalgamation of four freaky femme fatales from all over the continent coming together to show you how to party like it’s your birthday. Comprised of the illustrious Lydia Wilts: a young circus performing dancing down to nothing but skin and hot wax; Bizarre Bryn: the alien who ran away from home to join a crew of pirates – bending her boneless body in ways unseen by man; Olive-It Thee Clowne: the comedic bombshell that keeps you guessing with her clown wizardry; and hosted by the spellbinding Scarlet Checkers: the clowntortionist – sideshow wonderkin encouraging the most memorable audience participation.

LAST SHOW OF 2016! T-Rox Live at the In Arts NW December 10th

2016 has been a treasure of pleasure, we went past the tip and gained a lot of momentum. We are scattering to the four winds around solstice and the new year, so come celebrate with T-Rox for the LAST show of the year! Saturday December 10th at the In Arts NW. We will be playing some new songs, Buttchugger and Been Gentrified, and also doing our cover of Mr. Bungle’s Girls of Porn. The creativity floweth forth from the Glory Hole known as the In Arts NW theatre, and this is the majesty you can expect.

This is the new Gaydolf Christmas! (Gaydolf is one of Tony James’ many alter egos) Krystal Faye wrote a wonderful “choose your own adventure” script! The audience gets to pick where Gaydolf and Mirror go next as they Journey through gay hell during Christmas!

Nik Turner’s Hawkind, Hedersleben, Fungal Abyss, and T-Rox Live at the Highline Sunday October 30th

Well, this is a treat! A pre-Halloween show Sunday October 30th with classic space rock legends Hawkwind (with Nik Turner, founding member). What’s also exciting about this is that the opening and backing band for Nik Turner’s Hawkwind is Hedersleben, and bassist Bruno aka Ursula Stuart played and toured with Hedersleben last year, and is on the album The Fall Of Chronopolis released in 2015!

We are also playing with psychedelic insanity known as Fungal Abyss, whom we’ve seen live — they are amazing. Our other drummer turned future T-ROX keyboard player, Andrew McInnis (aka Saint Dickulus), is a part of this mayhem. This is going to be a great show, put it on your calendar NOW!

A link to the event on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1347749088587002/

It’s at the Highline Bar, 210 Broadway E, Seattle, Washington 98102. Tickets Available here: http://www.highlineseattle.com/event/1342857, $12 pre-order, $15 at door.

A Night of Originals, Followed by a Night of Covers – Friday October 14th and Saturday the 15th with Dynamite Nugget, Powerhitter, Kled, and Best Band From Earth!

Hosted by DASWASUP GIG and Lucky Liquor, this is going to be one fun show!  Not just because it’s T-ROX, but because it’s two days playing with the same bands, AND on the second day, Saturday the 15th, it’s going to be all covers!  What covers are we going to play?  This is subject to change, but it looks like it might be this:

SEE: 5 Kick-Ass, Original Bands Bring It For 2 Nights!
HEAR: Each Band Demonstrate Why D.I.Y. Is The Way!
WITNESS: A Vulgar Display Of What These Bands Consider Music!
BE AMAZED: At Their Versions Of Music That Inspired Them!

The Prodigal Non-Gendered Child Returns: Trannysaurus Rox is a Real Life Hedwig and the Angry Inch

[This article originally appeared in The Rogue Valley Messenger on September 8th, 2016.  Interview by Josh Gross.  Original article appears here:  http://www.roguevalleymessenger.com/the-prodigal-non-gendered-child-returns-trannysaurus-rox-is-a-real-life-hedwig-and-the-angry-inch/]

Tony James has So-O bonafides out the wazoo. He was born in Medford, raised in Grants Pass, and started his career as a performer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. To top that So-O cred, you’d have to pay the rent playing banjo on a pot farm.

These days, James fronts glam-rock spectacle Trannysaurus Rox, which will play Medford for the first time with a Tues, September 13 appearance at Johnny B’s. The Seattle six-piece is like a real life version of the off-Broadway smash (and small-release indie movie), Hedwig and the Angry Inch; a gender-fluid rock spectacular equal parts Twisted Sister, Ziggy-era David Bowie, and trip through Amsterdam’s red light district. And Trannysaurus Rox doesn’t dial any of it back from 11—in their thunderous rock sound, their full drag stage gear, or their gloriously foul-mouthed lyrics (the final track on their newly-released album is called, “Cunt Dick Fuck God,” which is about the only way to top the album’s title of Balls Deep Holiday).

James took the time to talk with The Messenger about the upcoming show.

RVM: How big an influence was Hedwig?

James: We call ourselves the next Hedwig. It’s one of our lead singer and drummer’s favorite movies. They watch it at least once a year with each other. The movie speaks of feeling divided and searching for self. We think each member of this band is doing just that. By playing together, we become whole and have a purpose behind what we’re doing.

RVM: How much do you play inside versus outside the queer music scene? Do you see a difference when you do?

We tend to play with a lot of heavy metal bands. Which is kind of funny for us because we totally fit in yet at the same time we are completely our own thing. No matter what show we play we always stand out. And our style of music also isn’t necessarily the style of music young gay men or women listen to. We are definitely not Britney Spears. But our lead singer thinks he/she’s Beyoncé. It is our hope that the LGBTQ Community becomes more loyal as a fan base.

RVM: Why is trans identity important to your band? Is it just an aesthetic or is core to what you’re trying to express with your music?

James: When we started the band it was drag. But now that are characters are fully realized we identify as trans in our own way. Every human being is in constant transformation/transition. Every member of this band has been in relationships with trans people at one point or another. We are fully looking forward to the community accepting our message and bringing it to the people that need to hear it. We are a gender-queer band.

RVM: The term “tranny” has been said to be derisive. Is using it in your name an act of reclamation? A middle finger to propriety? Or is it just a clever pun?

James: The answer to this is yes to every question…For some it’s a very offensive word. We have had countless conversations about changing our name to just T-Rox, but it comes down to your second question; we are reclaiming the power of our band name. We hope everyone will see that we took the most powerful of the dinosaurs, the mighty T.Rex, empowered with a queer name.

RVM: Any expectations for your first time playing in Southern Oregon?

We don’t know if Southern Oregon is ready for what we have coming for you. If you are a church-going person, this show might not be for you…[but] if you are free-thinking person who challenges all the norms in the communities that you live in, you’re going to want to come to this show! Because it not only is going to change your life, it’s going to change our lives in meeting you.

Friday September 16th at Substation! With L80 and Power Skeleton

This was a sick show!  I mean, first of all, literally, because Sioux City Pete was supposed to open and was too sick on that day to play.  But then it was sick in a good way, as in crazy and wicked, yeah.  Anyways, thanks to Substation for providing the awesome sounding venue for our homecoming show.  Lots of fun.

T-Rox at Sam Bond’s Brewery in Eugene, Oregon Wednesday Sept 14th

They treated us so nice.  The stout.  The food.  The guaranteed price.  We love you Sam Bond’s!  A small show, but fun to play and the perfect stopping point for a band that had been literally going 70mph for a good part of the day.

And that night two of the band’s entourage got laid!  But no one in the band got laid.  Oh Satan!

We like to do quotes of the day.  We had a couple good ones that day:

“Ohmygawd am I seriously gonna see some cock with my coffee? Oh yeah.”

“He found dick at a slot machine in a straight bar. And it was called Lucky’s.”

A message from singer Morgan LeGay:

“Come to our show and we will love you with open arms. Our band is empowering individuals that have been bullied by normal straight culture, bullied by their loved ones, bullied by their boyfriends, bullied by their girlfriends, their husbands, wife, family, and haters.

We are bringing a Hedwig style rock show to a community that is in desperate need of a good time. A gender fluid wonderland for people to express themselves freely and be who they really are. Even if for just one night.

Everyone in the band is trans. Maybe not the way you want us to be trans but we are. And no one can take that truth from us. We are all in transition everyday.

Rock on.”

T-Rox in San Francisco with Parae and Vain Hein at the Hemlock Sunday Sept 11

We’d been waiting for this for a long time.  Finally made it to San Francisco baby!  Yeah!

We played with Parae (had played with them before at the Victory Lounge) and self proclaimed “vapor rave” act Vain Hein.

Although the attendance was small, it was extremely well-received.  We were also very happy to play the Hemlock Tavern because it had one of the most orgasmic sound system we’d played in a while.  Thank you Hemlock.  We gave the sound person four virtual blow jobs and one hand job.

T-Rox Tour Kickoff Show w/ Ox & Freckles Riverside at Le Voyeur! Tuesday September 6th

There was a rock n roll rodeo in Olympia down at Le Voyeur.

For the second time, Trannysaurus Rox played in Olympia – Tuesday Sept 6. – It was the WEST COAST TOUR KICKOFF SHOW! You see, that means we liked you, because .. we came back. Some people think we will play anywhere where there’s dirt and sky and a place to plug in, but it’s not true, you are a two-night stand now. We had our next level special tour merch, which consisted of sex toy tape packages, posters, tapes, and offers for on-stage dom humiliation. This was a Tuesday, but we made sure it wasn’t the same ole grey grey. If you can’t have fun every day, then you will turn into a sourPUSS, and no one wants that.

We were blessed to have Freckles Riverside open up for us (alter ego of Morgan LeGay), as well as the amazing dancey black metal band, Ox.

A little photographic documentation of a July birthday party performance in honor of a lovely Portland FemDom, whom she shall call Mme. T.

We got invited because of Mme. T’s connections with Acid Panda, our drummer extraordinaire, who has learned much in the ways of the Fem-Dom lifestyle through this person (yes, she has slaves for days).

Here are some pics.  And if you have a private party that needs a partying band, give us some money, honey, and we can get your ROX off 🙂

Saturday August 20th at The Kraken Bar with Sciatica and Warpfire!

“I never thought of it as God. I didn’t know what to call it. I don’t believe in devils, but demons I do because everyone at one time or another has some kind of a demon, even if you call it by another name, that drives them.”

– Gene Wilder, RIP

A posthumous documentation of our show at Kraken Bar!  This one was special because we finally got to play with Sciatica, with whom we have close ties.  Also, Warpfire were fucking awesome!  Amazing 80’s style butt rock – definitely check them out!

Thursday August 11th at the In Arts Collective with L80! – The Genderless Mother

We are a Seattle band, and we are a playful band, and we play in the places we live.  Capitol Hill… It used to be THE spot for artists, LGBTQ community, and creative outsiders.  Now it has become Bro-ville, hostile to everything it used to represent. Many people have left, priced out or disgusted, but many are sticking around and digging in.  An enclave of old artistic capitol hill exists at The IN, an arts collective with art walks and events.  This is where T-Rox plays its next gig, Thursday August 11th at the In Art Collective.  Performances begin at 8pm!

Taken from the FB event page:

In this Capitol Hill artwalk event, we focus on mothering as a genderless industry necessary for the preservation, growth, and social acceptability of children and their development.

“The question I want to address is whether there is anything in the nature of children, women or men that requires a sexual division of parental labor even in post patriarchal societies.” – Sara Ruddick from “Maternal Thinking” (1997)(2006)

Mothering has a profound impact on our long-term well-being, impacting our ability to self regulate our emotions as adults. According to Karl Jung, the mother archetype is a symbol of our collective unconscious over history as a species. However, not all women are Mothers, not all Mothering comes from women alone. Can people identify with the Mother archetype, even if they do not identify as female?

In this group show, we are proud to feature visual artist and performance artist, Naomi McCulloch as she prepares a special spoken word piece about the genderless mother. She also presents 20 pieces of artwork from herself and her 11-year-old son, Zeke.

T-Rox … was on the Radio!

It was the night of Saturday, June 25th, and Trannysaurus Rox were rocking it with Gygax, Substratam, and Hexengesit at Capitol Hill Pride.   The ONE thing that was NOT awesome and orgasmic about that … we didn’t get to hear ourselves on KEXP because we were too busy rocking out!  They played our song Death by Dildo, between Judas Priest and Faith No More, two of our favorite bands.  Thank you Brian Foss for letting us ride that radio wave!

Georgetown Liquor Company – gig review by Poster Bot

Fuck More: A Liaison With Trannysaurus Rox
Words and pictures by: Poster Bot

I caught my first glimpse of Trannysaurus Rox at their very first show, an evening of wonder and debauchery at The Josephine. At the time all I saw was a horsewhip held high above the crowd and later pieced that recollection together with another of a bearded-girl in assless chaps. I didn’t know who they were and neither did anyone else, but I knew they were worth looking into, so I got in touch with the lead guitarist and asked about meeting him at their next show… ASAP. He got back to me ASAP, saying that they were playing a show “TONIGHT” at The Georgetown Liquor Company.Georgetown is like a post-apocalyptic version of Capitol Hill, if Capitol Hill had been nuked by communists during The Cold War. The bar suited it’s surroundings and had the feel of a small cantina on the edge of demilitarized zone. The walls were blue & orange and even though no one was smoking, somehow there was a din of black shadow hanging in the air. It had two TV’s, each showing the movie Jurassic Park and I walked in just as Jeff Goldblum was saying “That is one big pile of shit-” an auspicious beginning.Unless they were dead-ringers for horsewhips, I had no idea what anybody in the band looked like, but I figured that with a name like Trannysaurus Rox it’d make sense to look for some sign of gender-bending. It wasn’t long before I spotted a platinum-blond in a white wedding dress & matching fur coat, I knew she was the blond for me when I spotted her five-o’clock shadow.The platinum-blond walked in with the bearded-girl in assless chaps and the two of them were setting down guitars and other equipment on the small stage (decorated with records from Manticore Stencil Art). I approached the blond and introduced myself “Hello, I’m from The Monarch… We might’ve exchanged e-mails earlier? I have a booth over there and would love to talk whenever you’re ready-” she followed me to a quiet corner of the bar, candle-lit and nestled beneath a display of venetian masks. I felt like I was on a blind date.hot 01
She could’ve taken a seat on the other side of the table, but instead sat on the bench next to me, resting her cheek on the back of her hand and smiling. Maybe it was because I’d just finished a pitcher of PBR and was already working on another, or maybe it was due to her great big eyes staring at me without any judgement or expectation, but I felt instantly at ease and immediately began asking questions.”What’s your name?” seemed liked an appropriate place to start. “Kiyan Fox.” I managed to do a bit of research just before the show and followed with “Would that be the same Kiyan Fox who teaches Geomancy and is into the occult?” “Yes.”

Kiyan has been playing guitar for years in bands like Samara, a darkwave/metal band with an interest in Egyptology… While performing with T-Rox he becomes a character named Kinkita Trannimal, but off stage he’s a regular feature at Resurrection Sundays or Edge Of The Circle Books, providing tarot readings to the arcanely curious. Being a student of the occult myself I thought it prudent to ask “Are you familiar with Genesis P-Orridge?” Kiyan beamed and said simply “I love Genesis.”

I wasn’t really interviewing Kiyan, I was talking to Kinkita, an alter-ego separate from Kiyan, with a sensuality all her own. It made sense that she was a Genesis fan, in the mid 1970’s Genesis Breyer P-Orridge was a performance artist and sexual pioneer. When copycats like David Bowie were capitalizing on the notion of androgyny, Genesis was transforming into an openly hermaphroditic being. Not androgynous, not possibly a man or maybe a woman, but a true combination of man and woman as defined by the alchemical ideal. Kinkita is also pushing that boundary. I felt almost guilty thinking of her as a “she” so I asked what the appropriate pronoun would be “I prefer the term ‘heesh-‘” spelled “heshe.” The term is fitting, it accurately describes the concept of he+she… But I’ll be damned if I know how to conjugate it, so I apologize to both Kiyan and Kinkita for using non-gender-neutral prose.

The boundaries between sexes are at the heart of the band’s philosophy “fuck more.” They’re a self described but-glam band but when the mascara is stripped away their sound and soul are punk. I asked Kinkita what “fuck more” meant and she described it as a destruction of taboos… the establishment is fucked, so you might as well fuck shit up and when you think you’ve run out of shit to fuck, it’s time to think harder and fuck more. T-Rox wants to butcher, maim and ravage the standardized concepts of sexuality. No more taboos, no more boundaries and no more neatly defined roles of masculine versus feminine. The members of the band aren’t really drag-queens (or kings) in the traditional sense. They’re people, shattering the restrictions of gender and inviting their audience to do the same.

Which brings me to the band’s base-player… the bearded-girl in assless chaps. Her given name is Ursula Stuart and like Kiyan she comes from a metal background. She works with T-Rox as Bruno Pterod (as in pterodactyl) and doesn’t really have a beard, but Bruno had one drawn-on his face with eyeliner. The show was free but performers were encouraging donations and Bruno was turning an empty pitcher into a tip-jar, decorating it with a long straw, topped by a tiny black schlong. “I got it from a bachelorette party-” she said. “It needs a sign-” said a passing fan. Bruno settled on the phrase JUST THE TIP and was then encouraged by the passing fan to draw spooge coming out of the “I” in “TIP.”

As an artist I can’t help but leap at the chance to draw, so with Bruno’s permission I replaced the “I” with a spooging penis. It was too small to see, but that didn’t make it any less valuable. On the other hand, Bruno’s penis is not only visible, but on display. She was wearing a black strap-on dildo and it was with that same dildo that she made her first acquaintance with Nozomi Momo, the band’s 2nd-set drummer.

hot 02

T-Rox works with two drummers, one for each half of the show, the 1st-set drummer introduced himself only as “Saint Dickless” and didn’t spend a lot of time talking to me. To be honest I can barely remember what he looked like; what color his eyes were, his hair color, or if he had hair at all. All I do remember is that he was wearing a denim jacket, had an insanely thick beard and that he seemed to have a warm & saint-like glow. I’m sure I can take it for granted that he had no dick.

The 2nd-set drummer is Nozomi Momo (AKA Acid Panda) a gorgeous, exotic and incredibly savvy young woman from the hippest parts of swinging London. She hasn’t been in Seattle long, but has already managed to make front page news. She met Bruno at The Josephine show and made an impression by performing fellatio instead offering of the usual, informal handshake. The band fell in love with her and insisted she join. She’s a fire-dancer, a post-punk drummer, half Japanese, 1/4 Turkish, 1/4 Persian and 100% aspiring model.

Considering her eclectic background, I asked Nozomi about the character she plays on stage and I was particularly interested in her views on sexuality. “It’s not so much about sex as it is about freedom-” she said. I understood completely. Despite her seemingly promiscuous persona, Nozomi was as down to earth as the proverbial girl next-door. Her mother grew up in a Muslim country, where sex was virtually regulated by the state, the act of performing topless isn’t an invitation, but it sends a message to prudes everywhere… “Grow up.”

The show had already begun and it was time for Trannysaurus Rox to play. 30 years ago people were talking about Divine, but the sexual embodiment of today’s gestalt is Tony James, T-Rox’s lead singer. He’s a TV star, MC and auteur of international acclaim, performing with T-Rox (ostensibly) as Morgan Le Gay, Freckles Riverside and/or Gaydolf Hitler. I’m not sure if Gaydolf and Morgan get along, but that night it was Le Gay’s turn in the spotlight.

She opened with a cover-song, Witche’s Egg from Richard Elfman’s Forbidden Zone, after that the veggie-punks at The Georgetown Liquor Company were treated to an anthology of T-Rox originals; including Busy Bitch, Cunt Dick Fuck God and Death By Dildo, a sort of Dance Macabre about the inequality of fear and the universality of desire (a seminal achievement in the but-glam genre).

hot 03
Professor Alfred Kinsey once said “The only unnatural sex act is that which you cannot perform-” I think “fuck more” expresses that same sentiment. I caught up with the band when the show was over and like all good performers they had given it their all. They were charged with adrenaline and electric sexual-energy. I was too drunk to remember whether I shook Kinkita’s hand, or whether I squeezed her hips on my way out, but I made some sort of contact and in so doing received a shock down my spine. I’ve been charged ever since… and I think it’s time for me to fuck more.
