After Class Actress played an amazing opening set for VV Brown on April 28, 2010, I was fortunate enough to meet lead singer Elizabeth Harper of the soon to be massive group. She was extremely cool when I talked to her and though the press has been calling her “Brooklyn’s very own Madonna,” the difference is, Elizabeth Harper is totally nice and is not mean to fans. I am really digging their music right now and if you click on this link, you can get a taste for yourself from our good friends at RCRD LBL as they have posted a legal mp3 of “Careful What You Say.” I can only be so careful as to say this: Elizabeth Harper is a class act! Thanks again!
Moments after VV Brown’s triumphant first headlining show, I met the tremendously talented singer and she was V.V. nice! I told her that I had seen her first Manhattan show and that I gave it a glowing review on According2g and she was very thankful to me for believing in her. Truly, I don’t know how you could hear her music and not fall in love with it, but that’s just me. She signed a couple of items for me including her very excellent album “Travelling Like the Light” and she was kind enough to pose for a picture are well. My sincere gratitude to VV and I really cannot wait until she is a huge star!
I friggin’ love VV Brown, and “Crying Blood” is one of my favorites off her debut album “Travelling Like The Light,” which I highly recommend that you get! When she performed at the Bowery Ballroom in New York on April 28, 2010, she performed the track as we know it on the album and then right afterwards slowed it down for a reggae version! The lighting was a little funky so this is perhaps not the best video you’ll ever see, but you have to ask yourself the question – where else on earth will you get a chance to see this world exclusive video? The answer: According2g.com!
On April 28, 2010 at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, the always fabulous Amanda Warner (aka MNDR) opened for VV Brown. I saw MNDR a month ago and at the time, I wasn’t too familiar with her music. However, I liked what I heard and when I saw her tonight, I was once again groovin’ and dancing to her music. For lack of a better description, her music reminds me of pre-botox and plastic surgery Madonna which is a good thing, according2g. MNDR played her hits “Black Flag” and “Jump In” as well as a song dedicated to Patty Hearst. It’s not too often that you get to hear that at a rock and roll concert. MNDR also had a really cool projection screen behind her that was very trippy. The crowd also liked what they heard and I can envision that we’ll be hearing a lot more about MNDR in the coming year.
When I first saw Class Actress a few months ago, I fell in love with the funky beats and ethereal vocals of lead singer Elizabeth Harper and I’ve been listening to their album “Journal of Ardency” quite a bit ever since. On April 28, 2010, Class Actress opened for VV Brown at the Bowery Ballroom in New York and I am happy to report that they were just as good, the second time around. They performed their soon to be classics – Careful What You Say, Journal of Ardency and Let me Take You Out for the adoring crowd who was hooked after one song. Elizabeth Harper has already been branded by critics as “Brooklyn’s very own Madonna,” and I definitely think she has star quality. I’m very excited for what the future holds for this band. I met Elizabeth Harper after the show and she was extremely nice, but more on that later.
