Jon Ginoli of Pansy Division / Charles McVey

Jackpot Music Hall

Listen to our podcast interview of Jon Ginoli by Lawrence musician Charles S. McVey.

Jon Ginoli founded the openly queer rock band Pansy Division in 1991. Still going strong today, they've played over 900 gigsā€”in small clubs around the world, and in arenas opening for Green Day. Jon has rounded up that history into a book, a memoir about his Pansy Division adventures, titled "Deflowered: My Life In Pansy Division." Meanwhile, a documentary film about Pansy Division, titled "Pansy Division: Life In A Gay Rock Band," is coming out on DVD. To top it all off, Pansy Division has released their first album in six years, titled "That's So Gay." To commemorate all of this activity, Ginoli is taking to the road this spring on a combined book/film/acoustic tour, where he'll read from his book, show the film, and do acoustic versions of Pansy Division songs.

Listen to our podcast preview of McVey's new CD, "Animal."
