Amanda Blank and Sweatheart Bring the Miami Meat Tour to Art Basel
Electro-alternative pop beats and female rap vocals aren't normally lumped together. But for the better part of five years, Philadelphia's Amanda Blank has effortlessly combined the two worlds in her hipster-approved dance music.
In 2006, the 20-something party girl was featured on Spank Rock's "Bump," and generated indie-alt blog buzz by getting straight raunchy with it on the track: "This shit ain't happy/I'm trashy, boastful bitch MC/My rhymes are painful and fresh/My pussy's tastin' the best."
In 2009, Blank released her first album, I Love You. Meanwhile, Blank was also working with fellow Philly alt group Sweatheart, a self-described "community college rock" outfit "set to rock you--and your hot sister's world."
Amanda Blank and Sweatheart will play the first of three Art Basel shows on December 2 at Churchill's. They'll also be at Bar and the Overthrow Castle on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
