JANELLE MONAE ATE OUR FACE!


*Okay not really, but we were in Austin when she performed and was so nuclear, our collective face may as well have slid off onto the ground in a puddle of radioactive mush. Not only is her voice phenomenal and her stage show the bomb, she is a sci fi nerd and turning her whole Metropolis style futurismo into a graphic novel. I got a chance to chat with her after the show about Afro-futurism, Octavia Butler, being nerds and staying in the zone and we filmed it all. We'll put that up soon, but until then, watch her perform "Many Moons" at the FADER Fort. Also, can we discuss how Kallindo, her guitarist, is a major shredder? His myspace name is "Cock Rock 5"! Where did she find him? More importantly: how does the Janelle Monae band have the most perfect coifs on earth? Oh! We're gushing!
