Butch & Bellie

Conor and Alex of Butch and Bellie
Last night Eric The Roommate and I went to Glasslands in Brooklyn to hear our friends Conor and Alex perform as their alter egos in the gay rap duo, Butch & Bellie. Butch & Bellie is what happens when two white gay kids from the suburbs spend an entire childhood listening to the Beastie Boys and Run DMC and end up following in their mentor's footsteps.

From the duo's official myspace page:
We are an extremely talented homosexual rap duo - raised in the oppressive suburban enclaves in close proximity to the metropolitan areas known as BALTIMORE and BOSTON. Y'all hear that Alliteration (read: I took prep school vocabulary classes) BL-BL-BL-BL-BL-BL-BL-BLUCK!!!!!! BUTCH & BELLIE. Mad Clever. Mad Gay. HAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
They're unapologetic, incredibly lewd, campy but most of just good plain musical fun. The show is a hoot! You must ch-ch-check it out. Take a look at the lyrics below. How could you not have fun?

"...Not your average faggots.
Chelsea aint our thing.
We're educated Holly-rated not afraid to sing.
Down with Carrie Bradshaw, yeah it's true,
but you treat us like a Stanford
and you'll end up black and blue.."
