Gone is Gaga. Ready for Rizo.

Lady Rizo performs at Rudyard Kipling March 21st

Hipsters who DID NOT bother to join the Top 40 crowd (wearing only their tighty-whities and face paint) will be glad to know that that Gaga is ga gone, and another ” Lady”  lands her act in Louisville this week. 

Lady Rizo is the alter ego for singer and performance artist Amelia Zirin-Brown, who won a Grammy in 2010 for her work with Yo Yo Ma, and is featured on Moby’s most recent recordings.   Friday night I had a seat in the packed house at Joe’s Pub in New York City for Lady Rizo’s mix of sexy song and schtick (complete with a paradoy of the “other Lady’s” PokerFace).   Check out the show yourself Monday night (March 21st) at Louisville’s Rudyard Kipling.

Lady Rizo will share the stage with Louisville friends Tyronne Cotton and Graciela Perrone.  The show is part of  the Spring Motherlodge Live Arts Exchange running March 21-26.  Michael Arthur, Craig Wright, Adam Rapp, Rebecca Hart, Lady Rizo, and Superwolf are some of the out of towners who will mix it up with Bunny Day and The Mercy Buckets, Graciela Perrone, The Slow Chareston, Tyrone Cotton, The Sirens, and many more Louisville artists.  Want a glimpse of the magic that is Lady Rizo go to www.ladyrizoandtheassettes.com.
