HOUSE FIRE PARTY TOUR
We’ll Burn This City To The Ground
You’ve loved us from afar. Maybe you’ve hugged us after a show. Maybe you’ve even seen us at the pub and we’ve tried to get you to buy us drinks with varying degrees of success.
Now it’s time to up the ante.
It’s time for Gay Paris to give back.
But you have to throw a party.
Only by a never ending party can Gay Paris exist.
Want to be part of a savage run through decadence and excess not seen since Caligula flooded the coliseum?
All you need is a space large enough to hold us and your buddies as we ruin your neighbour’s chances of having a nice, quiet weekend.
We supply the PA, amps, drums and genuinely disturbing/amazing stage show and possibly a bunch of hangovers/hangers on from whatever party we played before – that’s right, we’ll be doing this all day long. Well, at least for 10 hours or so.
Sets will take place at 1:30pm, 3pm, 4:30pm, 6pm, 7:30pm, 9pm and 10:30pm, giving us time to flee the scene of our previous travesty against decency and set up at your place. Pick a time, go on, we dare you, we’ll be in and set up in 15 minutes with the help of our road crew of miscreants, play a 20 minute set and be gone before any noise complaints can garner a response from the po po- and hey, if you’re the host, you can even influence our set list, so what do you wanna hear? The old shit? The new shit? That awesome song by the Wu-Tang Clan? You got it, good buddy.
Hell, theme your parties, we’ll have so many costume changes that Lady Gaga will look like Slim Pickins (yeah, I’m callin’ him out – buy some more clothes, dude).
As alluded to before, we’ll have a party bus piloted by our good buddy, Crisis The Corncob Clown taking anyone debauched enough to do this more than once in a day from one location to the next. If you have the stamina, we provide the driver. He will get a touch weird once the sun goes down though, so be warned.
House fires all round. Get at us.
It’s been a big year for Gay Paris and their buddies, Totally Unicorn and God God Dammit Dammit.
Having each released a record this year, this triumvirate of venue wrecking, soul searing, party exploding bands has toured the hell out of the country, leaving pretty much no stone unturned in their quest to get naked (and get the fans to do likewise), get funky, get drunk and get the hell out of town before there are any possible legal repercussions.
As long time proponents of having great times while playing amazing music with the best dudes, these twenty men of varying size, colour and shape have decided to team up and run a savage burn down the East Coast of Australia, bringing together a mash of sounds that range from the best in Magical Animal Hardcore to Swamp Stompin’ rock and the kind of P-Funk that has to be prefixed by ‘punk’.
To make sure that everyone remembers this tour after it blows over, these fine gents will be toting the Totally Gay Dammit EP everywhere they go, featuring a selection of originals and cover songs by these three groups – get ready for some surprises, people, for as you may have come to expect, this is a group of musicians who make very strange choices.

So this week took us to Melbourne (complete with hot sluts and arrogant jerks) and Hobart (no goths, I’m afraid).
I managed to lose my trousers and green bandanna and Slim proved once again that he is terrible at freestyling.
Enjoy these photos to the point of orgasm, friends. Just Adelaide left.
See you in hell.
Gay Paris East Coast Tour, Winter 2011
“So what if The Beards are going to get one hundred beardless fools to gather their dignity and grow some goddamn facial hair?
It’s our goal to ensure that every bearded man (and anyone that will sleep with a bearded man) becomes immortal!”
That’s right, y’all, Gay Paris’ front man, WH has lost his mind again – and you know what that means: the kings of shack rockin’, swamp stompin’, heavy as the devil good times are back on the road.
With the wild (and let’s face it, that isn’t a word that Gay Paris throw around lightly) successes of this years previous tours, Taking The Throne and 4 Drink Minimum, the boys have indeed proved that not only have they brought ugly back, they’ve made it sexy.
With the addition of a fourth beard via the keen sighted man known only as Six Guns Simpson behind the kit, the stars have finally aligned in some obscure fashion that WH swears will allow all bearded men a lifetime of great times – forever.
Currently riding high on the release of their third single ‘The Blacktooth Supper Club’ from debut album, The Skeleton’s Problematic Granddaughter, Gay Paris dares anyone to deny the dirt crusted majesty of their live show – so come along, even if you hate the greatest band ever to crawl out of the mud and beg you for change while feeling you up and (probably) winning your heart in the process.
