Senior Bowl weekend has arrived in Mobile. Over this three-day period, the city will play host to a number of special events to complement this annual sporting event. Among the numerous activities happening throughout the weekend, Boyfriend’s performance at The Merry Widow should be one of the most exciting. Boyfriend has no shortage of fans in the Azalea City. This avant-garde musical maven from the Crescent City has tripped across the worlds of hip hop and pop while releasing some of the industry’s most impressive sounds. Along the way, Boyfriend has empowered her audiences with an unfiltered lyrical delivery that some find controversial and others find irresistible.
While her music is unforgettable, Boyfriend’s live performances are undeniably electrifying. Her “Rap Cabaret” mixes enlightening concepts and edgy costuming that are truly one of a kind. Last time she visited Mobile, Boyfriend brought a live band experience in the form of Khris Royal & Dark Matter. This proved to be one of her most memorable Azalea City shows to date. For this visit, Boyfriend plans on topping her previous show with members of another local favorite from New Orleans: Several members of The Revivalists will be laying a sonic foundation upon which Boyfriend will layer on her musical prose.
