Yes, you read that right: there's an audition happening for Minneapolis' first ever gay boy band. Thanks to Taylor over at Mediation Tumblr we've learned about a Craigslist ad posted April 24th saying:
"Okay, we've all heard of boy bands. We've all heard of gay boys in boy bands. But what about an entire boy band of gay boys. I know a couple of things, Minneapolis has talent and it definitely has gays. If you've ever been interested in starting a gay boy band or being in one, come to the audition and we'll see what we can come up with. Auditioning for two more members of the band. The audition will be American Idol style. You come a with a prepared song or two and we let you know if you've made it to the callback right away. THIS IS SERIOUS. Our goal is to put together a show that will start out traveling to different venues around the TWIN CITIES and grow from there. We will likely start out doing covers, but will eventually graduate to original songs. Looking for guys with good voices, the ability to harmonize, and who can move (no need to be a professional dancer but some skills are required. Song writers are a plus. "
Despite obvious spelling mistakes in the ad, we tend to think this is for real. And we personally know plenty of sassy gays who would be perfect! If interested, audition will be held at Rumours/Innuendo in St. Paul on Friday May 14th.
