Ever since Peep Show went on indefinite hiatus, I’ve been missing Little Tommy Bang Bang something fierce. Then I remembered that we have this video of Little Tommy performing with Drag Mansion at the 2012 Red Cap (R.I.P.) Block Party.
It’s one of my favorite Little Tommy/Drag Mansion performances of all time (the Mr. Rogers number at Miss Thing was pretty amazing too). I may be a little bit partial because the number involves a bit of stepping, which is the style of dance (rooted in the traditions of African-American fraternities and sororities and, before that, South African mine workers) I perform most often myself.
At any rate, here’s the video. And if you don’t know who Little Tommy Bang Bang is (seriously?), check out this profile PQ Monthly published a little while back. (Bonus: If also features editor Julie Cortez’s drag crush, Carla Rossi.)
