Such a treat to have Venus DeMars on the show today. Venus, lead singer of Venus DeMars and All the Pretty Horses. She’ll be playing at Palmers on August 26 and up in Duluth (Earth Rider) on Aug 27.
Venus has been breaking through the glass ceilings built over the trans community since 1988. She has smoothed a path for folks today. And I know that path isn’t always so smooth but it used to be rougher. If you want a glimpse of how hard it was and the impact of that environment, listen to her latest album, I Think the Darkness.
Our theme was transportation. You can listen to our aspirational playlist on Spotify or check out what we actually played below. We didn’t get to as many songs as usual because we chatted so much.
