Jonny and Brandon created their first show ‘Go-Go Real’ back in 2001, in NYC at Dixon place, and it set Jonny on his performance art track of the next 15 years. Together they mummified, stripped, sung about drugs, HIV and NYC nightlife. Winning critical acclaim from the NY Times and Village Voice. Jonny returned to London to throw his legendary Radio Egypt parties and Brandon Olson continued to hold the torch of the NYC underground aloft. Now hosting Suzanne Bartsch’s uber-glamourous parties and most recently styling her exhibition at F.I.T NYC and appearing in ground breaking theatre work at Theatre For The New City, Brandon Olson’s arrival brings the energy of NYC to the beating heart of London’s queer underground.
