Dorian Electra-fies El Rey: Pop music agitator Dorian Electra performs two nights at the El Rey Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday, on a bill with Lil Mariko and Death Tour.
November saw Electra release the video for “My Agenda,” directed by Electra, Weston Allen (100 gecs, Ru Paul, Rebecca Black), and Mike Diva (Lil Nas X, SNL, The Lonely Island). According to the press release, “the new visuals provide further context to Dorian‘s commentary on the conspiratorial “gay agenda” seeing them under the guise of a CEO of a water plant who is dumping chemicals in the water that are “turning the friggin frogs gay” (a la Alex Jones) and the leader of a gay military coup carried out by an army of furries that take over the city. The video features a cameo from Nadya of Pussy Riot, who is also a vocalist on the track as well as a dance troupe that pays homage to the legendary Village People.”
The end of 2021 also saw Electra release a deluxe version of the My Agenda project, “in which Dorian examines the ‘crisis in masculinity,’ queer identity, and the turbulent and rapidly shifting landscape of political ideology in the age of the internet. Featuring production by Dylan Brady, d0llywood1, umru, Count Baldor, Clarence Clarity, Sega Bodega, and more, the project includes a masterful assortment of genres, including hardcore, metal, pop, dubstep, and epic baroque just to name a few. Earlier this year, Dorian shared a video for “Ram It Down,” a song from My Agenda, with NPR exclaiming it ‘is an unexpected, fun summer anthem with hyperpop eccentricities.'”
