MEN W/ Romy, Shimmering War Choir!, & DJ Disco Tits

March 30th, 2011

Thursday March 31th

Beauty Bar

$10 tickets

MEN is a Brooklyn based art/performance collective that includes former Le Tigre members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. The music is infectiously dance-y electro stuff, and the lyrics, although still harboring a fun pop-y tone, usually encompass a plethora of LGBT and social/peace activist issues. Kind of like being at a riot grrrl show, and sticking it to the man, but while shaking your stuff at the club. It’s as fun as it sounds.

An Interview with Anika

March 30th, 2011

British singer Anika may have just released her first solo album, but she’s no newcomer to music or media. I met with Anika to discuss her unique background and self-titled new album while she was in Los Angeles on Feb 6th, which also happened to be her birthday. She apparently had a very tight schedule while in LA that included a DJ set at The Natural History Museum and various record company and press meetings. Despite seeming a little peeved about working on her birthday, Anika was pleasant and charming as well as a bit shy. “I’ve made a fake birthday in two weeks time so it’s ok,” she told me while looking down through shaggy blond hair at the ground.
