Blaque Chris isn't in a band, but seems to know them all, and is a ubiquitous presence on the L.A. music scene. He's always at shows, and describes himself as a "motherfukin party animal" in his Twitter bio. But that might be understatement. The 28-year-old Echo Park-ian is constantly dancing onstage, raging backstage, spinning tunes with friends like Ty Segall at his weekly Cha Cha night Full Time Punx, or snapping disposable camera photos for his Cultist column "Bee Cee's Blackouts", for which he captures his inebriated capers.
In his skin tight pants and pin-strewn jacket, Chris is instantly recognizable: walking down Sunset Boulevard people call out "looking good" or "Bee Cee!," his nickname. He shouts back in a voice that's part gravel, part lisp. En route to a friend's karaoke night, Chris spoke with us at Sunset Beer Company about music, partying, and vagina birthday cakes.More »
