Get ready for an evening of female-fronted pop this Friday night at the Starline Social Club. Actually, the term "pop" is a bit disingenuous standing on its own, because the kind of pop crafted by the evening's three acts is much more complex than what you hear on mainstream radio. The atmospheric musings of There's Talk invites a close listen and contemplation; YASSOU's sonic constructions are dense and mysterious, sometimes even imposing in their stark originality; and headliner Lila Rose's dark, intense, environment-inspired electro-rock seeks to both challenge and entice the listener with intrepid lyrics and hypnotic melodies.
Rose also plans on bringing her full multimedia theatrical performance to the Starline, promising not only a night of captivating pop music, but also one helluva show. It is her last Bay Area performance of the year, so expect her to go all out for this one.
Lila Rose, YASSOU, There's Talk
