08/20: Local Cut Feature on Janelle Monae
In anticipation of her upcoming peformance at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, Oregon, Local Cut has a feature
on Janelle Monae.
But the ultimate charm of Monae is her unique style; she creatively pairs puffy button-up ’70s secretary blouses with bow ties and crushed velvet tailored drummer boy jackets. High-waisted slacks, thick cummerbunds and ankle socks with two-tone (black and white) saddle golf shoes, the slick bottoms of which allow her to moonwalk across stages. A facial centerpiece, her signature high-piled ‘do leaves a huge puff of hair resting on her forehead for a faux hawk / ’60s beehive effect. The complete ensemble combined with her infectious energy (and that voice!) creates a pretty hypnotizing package. She is treat to watch live, bursting into impromptu, erratic dances between verses, allowing the full bands that back her a few moments to shine. Offstage, she seems like the kind of girl you’d want to get gelato and go window shopping with.
