Elevator returns to Machine House Brewery with a performance by Moor Mother.

Moor Mother [Don Giovanni Records / Philadelphia]
"The genius of Camae Ayewa—musician, activist, organizer, curator, poet—has been percolating underground for the better part of a decade. As Moor Mother, the Philly-based artist has released some 100 recordings online since she began the project in 2012, masterfully reimagining the electronic noise collage as protest song. Ayewa makes beats, bashes punk chords, and raps, fusing these elements seamlessly with samples that have ranged from the late Maya Angelou reading her poem “A Brave and Startling Truth” to Fugazi’s “Waiting Room” bassline. Ayewa’s searing themes tie it together; her lyrics focus on systemic racism. “Malcolm X was my childhood hero,” Ayewa has said, and she has described the sound of Moor Mother as “blk girl blues,” “coffee shop riot gurl songs,” “project housing bop,” “anthropology of conscience,” “slaveship punk,” “death poems.”

The first Moor Mother LP, Fetish Bones, arrives in September."
