Your Daily Lick: Pansy Division

That's So Gay (Alternative Tentacles)



After six years, the quintessential gay punk band returns with another batch of endearingly explicit and plain funny pop-punk. While Jon Ginoli's lyrics have always been Pansy Division's selling point, its sturdy, sharp sound has become its greatest strength. Underneath it all is subtle social commentary, making the band a top-rate San Francisco export.

Ginoli will read from his book Deflowered: My Life in Pansy Division at A Different Light Bookstore (489 Castro St., San Francisco) on Monday, May 4. 7:30 p.m., free
