Between rides back and forth to A3C this weekend, I've been listening to Queen Sheba's new album Shebatar — a three-disc retrospective of her live poetry works over the last decade. How she manages to be so vulnerable and fierce at once is beyond me.
Uhhhhh... I'm not sure if you picked up a Creative Loafing last week. NOT the one that's out now but last Thursday the 30th to the 7th. I was on the cover. *Waves hand at roaring crowd to calm down* Yes ... Yes... that would have been cool except the article was degrading and made me and others (more importantly me) a parody for pride weekend.
She goes on to say that the cover story "set civil rights for the gay and lesbian community back about 30 years." It's a criticism that's hard to take lightly while listening to Shebatar, as she details her journey to womanhood, and the personal struggles, sexual and racial identity politics that have come with the territory.
Empowerment sister? No doubt. But seems like using Queen Sheba's true voice and identity to define the type would've been much more authentic than filling in the blanks with a bunch of stereotypes.
Even if you can't make the party/performance tonight, get your hands on her CD. It's all that.
Shebatar release party and show. With Eva Kennedy, Tiffany Campbell, and more. 7 p.m.-9 p.m. Cloud IX, 177 Peters St. 678-429-2065.
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
