Leslie and the LY's coming to ATL, 4/21 and 4/22
Heads up, Atlanta -- we're about to be visited by an Internet (do we still capitalize "Internet"?) celebrity. Iowa-based gem sweater collector, kitsch queen, and DIY hip-hop artist Leslie Hall will be in town for shows at Drunken Unicorn (4/21) and Eyedrum (4/22) with her band Leslie and the LY's. Chances are good you've seen one of her videos, possibly forwarded by a friend with the words "awesome" or "LOL" in the subject line. Basically, I'd describe her music as the mischievous spawn of '80s rap and an Adult Swim sketch. Who else rhymes and sings about their love for spandex, the Bedazzler, and killing zombies?
