VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Lauryl Sulfate
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
For this episode, Ben sat down with Lauryl Sulfate, who fronts her band Lauryl Sulfate & her Ladies of Leisure. Their most recent album “Dance Music Saves Lives” came out this past March. We discussed fighting the patriarchy, Disco Demolition Night, Riverwest FemFest, Lauryl’s concept behind the new album, and the feminity/queerness associated with pop music.
