"Ambitious intellectual and boy you know I'm sexual/Won't meet this type of chick everyday" — Slick & Rose, "Chemical" (2006)
Sabrina "October" Rose is so ambidextrous.
As half of the smart ’n' sexy Atlanta-based duo Slick & Rose, she and partner-in-crime Nikki Slick were one of the first acts to add a megadose of rock and electro-hop into Atlanta's distinguished soul scene long before it became du jour. And as producer/host of Friday Girl TV, she's attempting to knock down more doors with a provocatively titled panel discussion this Saturday that will challenge the age-old identity politics and media stereotypes that often force women in the industry to pull cards from a stacked deck.
Free with valid student I.D. $5 for non-students. 1:30-3:30 p.m. Sat., Sept. 24. Cosby Auditorium, Spelman College, 350 Spelman Lane. Purchase advance tix at www.fridaygirltv.com/talkbackseries. All proceeds go to Girls Incorporated of Greater Atlanta.
After you check out the video below of Rose delving deeper into the Sex Kittens vs. Super Brains topic below the jump, rock out to Slick & Rose's vid for "Breakdown," the first single from the duo's upcoming EP, People Will Stare.
