Video Flashback: Drag Mansion at the 2012 Red Cap Block Party

By Erin Rook, PQ Monthly

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.)
