Polartropica has become something of a fave here at the L.A. Weekly and for good reason. This Bootleg gig is the homecoming date on her Love Is Gay tour, and it’s no surprise that her glittery electro-synth pop is a hit with LGBTQ audiences. It’s impossible to look at main-woman Ihui Cherise Wu without grinning. In these difficult and cynical times, she’s a luminescent performer and talented artist. Also on the tour is the superb Wasi — a group that describes their “music and vigor” as “an invitation into their utopia of love, liberation and a questioning of the status quo.” And then there’s indie pop band Lucy & La Mer. Honestly, that’s a stunning three band bill. Don’t miss it.
Polartropica and Wasi play with Lucy & La Mer at 8:30 p.m. on Monday, July 8 at the Bootleg Theater.
