    "SECRET NOTEBOOKS" With a month off in the summer of 2011, and amazing collaborators who wanted to help, Half Straddle set out to make their first-ever rap song and accompanying video. Playing off the idioms of the genre, Half Straddle’s rad girl rappers drop push-ups with no knees, late nights with Soledad O’Brien, and references to their bangs as a knowingly ridiculous vocabulary for throwing shade, all set in a lusciously drenched visual realm and accompanied by deep beats that need to be played really loud for full effect. Vocals by Erin Markey + Emily Emily Davis Music + Production by Bobby McElver Video by Michael De Angelis Lyrics + Direction by Tina Satter Featuring: Jess Barbagallo, Eliza Bent, Becca Blackwell, Nikki Calonge, Emily Emily Davis, Chris Giarmo, Erin Markey, Kourtney Rutherford, Pete Simpson, Julia Sirna-Frest www.halfstraddle.com / halfstraddle@gmail.com

      A bedazzled creature builds a community by singing 24 concerts of the last 24 decades of popular music. Ultimately all 24 decades will be stitched together culminating in a 24-hour long extravaganza (in 2014), which will feature Taylor Mac, a 24-piece orchestra, dancing beauties, special guests, and you. Bring bedding and toiletries. For now, here is a sample from the workshop of the 1770s decade. With Chris Giarmo on vocals and Alexander Horowitz on piano. Costume by Machine Dazzle
