Lady Parts at Mercury Cafe, 01/29/11

With Doo Crowder, Samantha Doom Blows Up the Band, Maudlin Magpie
01.28.11 | Mercury Cafe

Lady Parts hosted its CD-release party over the weekend amongst a group of musical friends, including Doo Crowder, who opened the evening's proceedings with a further evolution of his solo act. He had all his electronic sounds set perfectly, and he had his looping technique down, so that he could perform as he's always seemed to have wanted. With the first song, Crowder created some modest percussion by looping his beatboxing, and then played over the top like Karl Blau might do -- a kind of hybrid of hip-hop and folky indie pop.
