Vockah Redu

That Vockah Redu hasn't produced a single noteworthy song—quick, name one!—is pretty much irrelevant to his appeal. Not only because his brand of New Orleans sissy bounce music is meant for immediate and ephemeral physical enjoyment—dancing, booty-clapping, and so forth—but because he and his Cru's live show is about more than translating recorded music to the stage. His live shows are elaborately costumed (and then stripped-down) dance contests, and on previous rolls through Seattle he's paired them with daytime bouncercise dance workshops. It's an impressive package, and if it doesn't leave you with anything in the way of home listening, it'll at least give your ass a workout. With Witch Disco, Hoot N Howl. ERIC GRANDY
