We caught Lorde bring her latest album ‘Melodrama’ to Boston.
This week, we can’t stop spinning ‘One Stone’, the latest folk self-release from drag queen Trixie Mattel. As the follow-up to her first album ‘Two Birds’ (amazing, right?), she creates a 22-minute world of her own where acoustic guitars and autoharps exist in perfect harmony with drag culture. We know that once you enter her world, you’ll want to stay.
It goes without saying that RuPaul’s Drag Race has given an important platform to the drag community. In a recent interview with the Guardian, RuPaul made it very clear that he does not see the show as a space for “bio queens”, cisgender women or trans women. We need to support the trans community, the gender non conforming community, and the drag community as a whole.
When she isn’t in class at Northeastern or creating doodles for her mom to embroider, Boston-based Sidney Gish is writing, playing, recording and mixing her own music in her dorm room – and she has a 7.7 Pitchfork rating on her latest release ‘NO DOGS ALLOWED’ to show for it. We had the chance to talk with Sidney about her writing process, identity, and – of course – Carrie Brownstein.
To close out 2017, Modern Girls have decided to share a few of their favorite albums from the year. Kristen’s pick? ‘Melodrama’ by Lorde.
This week’s #moderngirlcrush is 17-year-old Adele Sakey, a freelance photographer and Passion Pit groupie. We talked with her about the Boston music & photography scene, taking action in light of the election, and what being a Modern Girl means to her.
This Sunday, I took a trip to the Black Market (an arts market, not that market) in Cambridge, MA brought to life by Boston Hassle. Read on for some of my favorite modern girl artists and sellers to keep an eye on!
