Trixie Mattel does Violent Femmes proud

Drag legend and undisputed crossover rock star Trixie Mattel debuted a “sunny and energetic” (Paper Mag) cover of Violent Femmes’ “Blister In The Sun”, nodding to her Milwaukee roots while decked out in a brilliant crossword puzzle dress.
FUN FACT: Trixie and Violent Femmes are both from Milwaukee, and Trixie’s first ever performance “in drag” was during a production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Oriental Theater, the same theater that the Violent Femmes were reportedly “discovered” in front of in 1981.
This is the first of many amazing things coming music-wise from Trixie this year, and follows this week’s announcement that she is now co-owner of Wisconsin’s oldest LGBTQ+ bar This Is It! and a GLAAD nomination for Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist for her 2020 album ‘Barbara‘.
