Kelow Taps Mainstream Hip-Hop’s Misogyny But Doesn’t Share Its Taste for Beef

A year and a half ago, few hip-hop fans in the District had heard about Kelow, a blond-dreadlocked, wisp-thin, weed-smoking lesbian rapper from Forestville, Md. But she was about to be big in Sweden.
In September 2011, Kelow’s video for "Haterz" popped up on the Swedish hip-hop blog Pussy Made of Gold. By summer 2012, she [...]

Arts Roundup: Middleton Moombahton Edition

LOVE Stinks: Earlier this week, massive sculptures spelling out "LOVE" appeared in Dupont Circle—part of, DCist reveals, a Virginia tourism campaign. 1) Insert Robert Indiana joke here; 2) the Dupont LOVE installation is an even bigger eyesore than those warped heart sculptures promoting Colombia tourism in 2009.
Royal Remix: Calling it here—Moombahton has jumped the shark. [...]

The Museum of Unnatural History, after [...]

Arts Roundup: Pazz & Jop and then We’re Done with 2009 Edition

Hello! Pazz & Jop! The annual critics' poll organized by the Village Voice went online yesterday, and nothing about the main lists should surprise you: Animal Collective and Phoenix topped the albums list; Jay-Z (and Animal Collective and Phoenix) topped the single list. A number of City Paper staffers and contributers submitted Pazz & Jop ballots. [...]

Afternoon Arts Roundup: Stabbings and Cancelations Edition

Following an early New Year's Day stabbing at Love nightclub in Northeast, District police  ordered that the space be shut down for 96 hours, the Washington Post reports. At around 1:30 a.m., a man in his early 20s was stabbed; he suffered serious injuries that were not life-threating.
This was the third violent incident inside the [...]

A Bad Day to Die

One of the Post's best blogs reminds us that Farrah Fawcett wasn't the only person whose demise was blocked out by Michael Jackson's—Sky Saxon, singer of the Seeds, died last Thursday as well. I'll say—the publicist who emailed me on June 15 about a garage-rock tour featuring Love, the Electric Prunes, and Saxon, hasn't uttered [...]
