From what we've heard, taking in a live performance by The Blow sounds an awful lot like sitting through a 3-D showing of the Johnny Depp version of Willy Wonka. Except in this scenario, the film is also being projected onto an IMAX screen. And there are actual Oompa Loompas doing cartwheels through the aisles. Seem like a good time to you? OK, even if Willy Wonka ain't your thang, chances are you'll get some kind of substantial kick out of what LadyFestGR has to offer this March. Joined by DJ Lynnee Denise (recognized as much for her outstanding hip-hop infused beats as for hogging extra letters from the alphabet) and the all-lady string quartet Nobody's Darlin', The Blow are described as an "electronic pop duo" whose live shows are an "open laboratory for experimentation." In other words, the shes of the evening will be blinding us with science before well, blowing our minds.
