More Alessi please.

We all need more Alessi’s Ark shows in our lives. She’s playing at the ICA on April 29th. It seems like a good cause:

“Join ActionAid for an event in support of women around the world campaigning for equal rights and an end to discrimination against women.”

Alessi is the only one on the line up who I want to see, although there will supposedly be some ‘very special guests’. Tickets are only £11 so it’s worth it just for Alessi, but also playing are Thecocknbullkid and a (supposedly ‘infamous’) New Yorker called Princess Superstar. While the thought of seeing someone called ‘Princess Superstar’ makes me cry a little inside, it will be at least be funny. Princess Superstar is a rapper, who has invented a new genre to describe her music- she calls it ‘flip flop’. Amazing. Her press photos scare me. Her song titles scare me. Just look at her LastFm. More details and tickets from the ICA website.

    Princess Superstar?! NO WAY! ‘Bad Babysitter’ was a minor hit when I was, like, 16…

    …so I was 11. I youtube’d it and I actually remember it. I made it through the first minute before I couldn’t bear it any longer. DEAR LORD. I think I will stay just for the lulz…

    but why is Alessi, with her sweet lovely lyrics, on a line up with someone who is a bad baby sitter with her boyfriend in the shower making six bucks an hour… WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO!?
