Poppy is not a cult. Poppy is your best friend. You love Poppy.
Viral Youtube personality and pop music artist Poppy celebrated the release of their new album ‘Poppy.computer’ with a performance at Slim’s in San Francisco this past Thursday, October 26th.
It’s not clear whether Poppy is an alien, android, human, or something else, but the enigmatic singer led the audience through tracks from her new album, like ‘Let’s make a video’, ‘Interweb’, and ‘Computer boy’, with some subtly disturbing skits between songs — attendees were invited to drink an unmarked beverage from Dixie cups while cautionary imagery was displayed, and the severed head of a character called Charlotte was carried around for the audience to see.
Backup dancers, vibrant visuals, a tight, well-produced set of songs, and an opening DJ set by what appeared to be a mannequin made for an entertaining show.
