Sizzy Rocket at the Virgil: At the end of 2022, we included Sizzy Rocket in our Holiday Gift Guide. We said, “Art-punk provocateur Sizzy Rocket has just released her new album Live Laugh Love, although it’s 2020’s third studio effort Anarchy that she sent us on lovely red vinyl. The record is a journey for the listener, as it apparently was for the artist. Rocket is a rising star on the punk scene — she certainly has a sound all of her own and she’s not afraid to ruffle few feathers.”

We expect plenty of feather-ruffling at the Virgil.

Sizzy Rocket challenges what it means to be a pop artist in 2022 with her DIY approach, poetic and unapologetic lyricism, and a genre-blending musicality that takes influence from punk, hip-hop, and beyond,” reads her press bio. “The Los Angeles-based artist became the sneering face of 21st century rock ‘n’ roll thanks to her viral 2016 electro-pop-punk seducer, ‘Bestie,’ an unapologetically profane paean to turning your BFF into one with benefits. 2019 saw the release of Sizzy’s sophomore album, GRRRL, clocking in at #19 on the iTunes Top Alternative Albums chart, followed by a self-booked, sold-out US tour with TV star chloe mk as support. 2020’s third studio album, ANARCHY (which peaked at #16 on the Alternative Album charts and Top 50 in overall genre charts) explores her own personal chaos and dives into her punk roots for an artful experience unlike anything she had released before. The accompanying ticketed livestream – ANARCHY: COME TO LIFE – brought fans and friends together into a virtual performance art experience, presented live from an abandoned theme park.”

Mel4ever will also perform, and Pennywild will DJ.

Sizzy Rocket at the Virgil: The event takes place at 9 p.m. on Saturday, February 24 at the Virgil.
