None other than the iconic feminist musician, producer, director and performance artist Peaches, who spread Critical Joy together with Keith Hennessy in the MQ courtyard in 2016, comes to the arcade courtyard in the Viennese City Hall on July 14. For over two decades, the Canadian has been causing a stir, pushing boundaries and breaking barriers. She has dramatically altered the landscape of popular culture as she forged a bold, sexually progressive path that’s opened the doors for countless others to follow. Her 2000 album The Teaches of Peaches set new standards for equality, sex, electropunk and pop. The anniversary tour for the ground breaking debut recently sold-out venues in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Peaches is currently working on a new studio album.
An unmistakable style that reflects the spirit of the times and seeks to evolve with it – this is what characterizes Lou Asril’s music from the very first moment. His first single – DIVINE GOLDMINE – was released in 2019, catapulted straight to #1 in the charts, and brought him prominent playlist placements as well as award nominations (Best Alternative at the AAMA, FM4 Award). Numerous styles have found their way into his work so far; in the creation of the current EP RETROMIX21, Lou Asril has outgrown what he calls the “younger, more restrained” image of the soul artist, leaning more into his electronic music inclinations and incorporating elements from hip-hop to rap.
