Generally I dont like top 40 club/house or pop/dance music. That’s a lot of Dont Likes for a blog about what I like, I know… I mean Yes, I get down to a few of Lady Gaga’s tunes and YES, I may know the words to some Timbaland hits. Im just saying I will leave the club or bar immediately before that so called bass drops and the glow sticks come out.
That being said I want to talk about ANNA ROSE formally known as Menega,Miss. She has changed up her style and sound a bit and is back in action performing her brand of pop/dance tunes with some dub step/ house flair. “But Dawn..You just said…” Yes I know I said I dont like that stuff but I like this girl.
Anna Rose puts on a great show and has an amazing voice that needs no auto-tune despite it peeking through in a song or two. Her new tracks are perfect for a DJ to spin at any weekend night club while her live shows are more stripped down but still in keeping with her upbeat, body moving vibe.
She’s a friend who I have gotten drunk with, danced with and shared good times with. I also sang back ups for her when she was known as Menega,Miss. Her genuine approach to her craft inspired me and her songs made me dance like a happy idiot. When performing with her I was always surrounded by a diverse crew from eclectic stylists to hilarious and fierce transvestites. It was always a god damn pleasure. I took note at how hard she works to brand herself and surround herself with committed talent. It gave me new insight on the “pop world” I usually dismiss.
Though her new shows may not be as theatrical as her former alter ego the quality of her performance will speak for itself. Check her out Sunday June 9th at The Basment Tavern in Santa Monica. You will have a blast! and go to http://www.facebook.com/realannarose like that sexy bitches’ page!
