Published Dec 07, 2009When Portland-based electro duo the Blow lost beat-maker Jona Bechtolt to his YACHT project, it was quite a, er, blow. Since then, Khaela Maricich has been continuing the act by herself, though little has been heard from her. On the weekend, however, she debuted material from a new Blow project entirely inspired by celebrity train wreck Lindsay Lohan (who is probably more familiar with a different kind of blow).
According to a report from the Miami New Times [via Pitchfork], Maricich took the stage at Miami's Pulse Art Fair on Saturday (December 5). She started the set by telling the audience that she has been doing some work with the Mean Girls actress on her new album. She left the stage, returning in some pop diva clothes and proceeded to preview some of these tracks. She also read excerpts of voicemail messages allegedly received from Lohan.
Maricich ended the show with self-commentary, saying, "Could you imagine Lindsay actually performing that? Could you get an idea? Now take that image and subtract it from what I just did. The sum of that is the difference between a girl like me and a girl like Lindsay."
Fittingly, the Miami New Times responded by saying, "We're not 100 percent sure what happened, but we're pretty sure we liked it." Hopefully, Maricich will put some of these weird, conceptual tunes to tape so we all can get a taste.
