This is a HUGE show! Salt-N-Pepa are hip hop legends. ‘Nuff said.
But, the fact that God-Des & She are getting to play with them is the part that is the HUGE-EST! An LGBT hip pop/soul duo on the same bill as these global legends? Really? And, they’re all talented and strong women, so it’s not even a question of that.
I love my women artists. Who doesn’t love SNP and who in Austin does not fall in love with G&S once you see and/or meet them? G&S are based here, y’all, and if you didn’t know, now you know! I think the lesbians can be said to be a given, but, then, they get the gay boys, too, and soon the world, which I’m sure they already have some of, anyway. This will be a nice mixed crowd. I love it because it’s a nice bridge (a word someone used when I was talking to them about this show recently and I liked it, so I’m using it). A straight-gay alliance of hip hop, if you will!
At the end of the day, though, it really is just about good music, great performance, and charisma as artists and performers on stage. And, all four ladies have all of this in droves.
Salt-N-Pepa are from Queens and Brooklyn and represent hip hop globally.
God-Des & She are from the Midwest and represent hip pop/soul in the gAyTX and the world.
