Let’s face it: we’re all dirty queers sometimes. If your taste currently runs towards the filthy-gorgeous side, you’d do well to congregate at the Someday Lounge on March 31 and witness local rapper Damon Boucher perform his sophomore album, “Love Me Like A Rollercoaster,” in its entirety for the first and last time.

Boucher’s first album, “Superfag,” released last April, raised eyebrows and won fans with its dark, synth-heavy take on young gay life. “Love Me Like A Rollercoaster,” while just as hard-edged and steely-eyed as “Superfag,” keeps the angst but turns the horniness up a few notches.

The guest performers joining Boucher to perform “Love Me Like A Rollercoaster” on March 31 are a veritable who’s-who of Portland’s queer hip-hop underground. Highlights include Glitter Express, Neil Von Tally, Boys + Mixtapes (formerly of Chichi and Chonga), the absurdly gorgeous Kitty Morena (also formerly of Chichi and Chonga), and the sexy and talented Jeau Breedlove.

Those who like to trip out while they rock out are in luck: live visualizations by Alex Boyce are sure to entrance. Once Boucher and his crew drive the audience wild, DJs Pocket Rock-It and Roy G Biv will take over for a late-night dance party and keep the freaknasty level high. All in all, it’s a night certain to get you sweaty — one way or another.

 

Damon Boucher and guests perform at 9 p.m. on March 31 at the Someday Lounge (125 NW 5th Ave.,Portland). Entry is $5 at the door and includes a copy of Boucher’s album. Sorry, kids — this is a 21-and-over night of queer music.
