: "Funkier than electroclash, grittier than most Prince homage,J*DaVeY
's "Dirty Love" is neck-deep in the kind of synths that Van Halen once deemed macho. The L.A. duo dubs itself "the black Eurythmics" on MySpace (though mohawked female singer Jack Davey sounds closer to Bow Wow Wow's Annabella Lwin). The sound is enough to justify interest, if not hype, but tonight's cover is justified by hot locals in a similarly murky milieu: rapperMuja Messiah
, with a new album featuring collabos with Black Thought and Slug on the way; andBlack Blondie
, a live-instrument soul/jazz/rap group that cameone point away
from winning the recent Picked to Click best-new-band poll in City Pages."
