Comic Concert Review: Everybody wants to be Poppy!

An illustrated take on the internet's meta pop star in the making


POPPY at Danforth Music Hall, Wednesday, February 6. Rating: NNNN


The internet produces weird pop stars at a fast clip, but YouTube’s latest music machine, Poppy, makes you want to hit the loop button over and over – if only to find out what the hell just happened. Poppy’s music flits between bright and bubbly computer pop, late 90s fever dreams and full-on death metal nightmares. Hard as she is to fathom on a screen, we knew there was only one way to explain her live show: a comic concert review.
