Singer-songwriter Homer Marrs to premiere new music video at Bear Bust

Homer Marrs teams up with Bear Bust to premiere his new music video!

Queer singer-songwriter Homer Marrs will be playing an acoustic set and premiering the video for his new song, “Ben”, at Bear Bust at Precinct DTLA in Los Angeles on September 5 at 6:00 p.m. 

Bear Bust, a Jeremy Lucido production, is a monthly party at Precinct DTLA featuring go-go Bears, patio games, featured DJs and, of course, cheap beer. “For me it was no-brainer to ask to premiere the video there because first, the bar was gracious enough to let us film it there when they were closed,” says Homer. 

“Second, ‘Ben’ is an acoustic song that lends itself to a Sunday ‘sip and chill’ vibe. Precinct has become such a hub for L.A.’s LGBTQ arts and performance community that people don’t need their arms twisted to go. Oh, and it’s generally crawling with hot dudes — that might have been a factor too. So, needless to say I was thrilled when they said the show was a go!”

Two other artist friends, Zee Machine and Alex Shafer, will be joining Homer during his set. 

Zee Machine’s 2018 EP Brainchemistry debuted in the top 25 on the iTunes pop charts (the title track of which was named by Billboard magazine on their list of “50 songs you shouldn’t have missed this year”), and he was named by The Advocate on their list of 7 queer artists changing the game.

“Zee Machine is a wicked talented queer singer/songwriter/tour-de-force,” says Homer. “I have seen him live with his band twice now, and am excited to hear him solo acoustic. I learned of him through Bear World Magazine, actually, when you did the piece on his “4 on the Floor” music video that featured all the big boys struttin’ their stuff!” 

Alex Shafer is a lifelong musician that has been in a range of groups from orchestras to punk bands. Alex began writing original music at 16 with his band The Extraordinaries and later joined the all-bear band Pasadangerous. From 2014–2017 they played at bear events, L.A. bars, and Pride fests. Alex’s acoustic originals focus on relationships, loss of innocence, and coming out as an adult.


There is no cover for the show, however proof of COVID vaccination will be required for entry

And for those of you who cannot make it to the “Ben” video premiere in Los Angeles, the video will go live to the public on September 10.
