Landon Cider


LANDON CIDER
SPECIAL GUEST

MC of Drag King Explosion in SoCal and the only King to be banned from RPDR.

Once I found drag, it was a beautiful fusion of all of my artistic expressions into one platform where I was able to become who I wanted to become and not read a script that someone else wrote for female characters - which has always been the lady waiting for the man to save her, and be swept off her feet because she's in trouble. I'm tired of playing that type of role, and I was finally comfortable with my androgyny and everyday presentation of "I don't care if it's butch, fem or whatever, if I like it, I'm going to wear it." I express myself in all levels of feminism and butch-ism, and all the different variations of lesbianism, I guess. Once I found all that, it all came together. I love creating my own art and my own character. Landon's many faces

He then auditioned for some local theatrical productions, but again, was met with disappointment. At least they still love him at the Mt. Madonna Retirement Home, where he serenades the residents at the weekly open mic night.


PEPPERSPRAY
Patti Smith. Anna Nicole Smith. Robert Smith. The Smiths. Smith & Wesson. The strobe light of celebrity flashes and the stars collide in your mind. Witness the cultural marvel that is PEPPERSPRAY! Each of these award winning Z-list megastars have marked their turf internationally in music, film, fashion, dance, design, porn and theatre. Collectively, as PEPPERSPRAY, they have dragged the age-old institution of female impersonation back into the Rock 'n' Roll spotlight. This is an ass-kickin' real live band with all the glamour and humor of a killer drag show. They've opened for Cher and Scissor Sisters. They've headlined the biggest street fairs in the US of A. The San Francisco Examiner calls PEPPERSPRAY "...a combination of The Spice Girls and The Sex Pistols". They are impossibly cool and deliriously fun. www.peppersprayband.com

This southern boy will show you what it means to be a sensitive guy, so you just might not notice the devil inside.
