WASI, Lucy & La Mer, Polartropica

June 10, 2019

9 p.m.

“I’m a rebel babe/I ain’t gonna break,” Lucy LaForge declares on her band Lucy & La Mer’s swinging song “Rebel Babe,” which features a pointedly feminist rap break by Bugsy. Unlike other riot-grrl anthems such as Bikini Kill’s “Rebel Girl,” LaForge doesn’t use punk-rock vitriol to announce her identity and celebrate the blurring of boundaries between gay and straight, feminine and masculine. Instead, the local singer relies on her unabashed pop instincts to forthrightly revel in her “right to misbehave.” Even when she’s standing up for herself, LaForge can’t help charming listeners with her sunny, poppy melodies and hopeful messages of inclusiveness and tolerance. As part of Lucy & La Mer’s Love Is Gay tour, the local indie-pop band is joined by likeminded allies WASI and Polartropica.
