Auntie Piggy’s new EP IDGAF (I Don’t Got Any Flaws) is a short, but not too sweet, reminder that she is not one of them. “I don’t rap about nothing that’s not true,” she said of the album, which was released in early May. From the EP’s first cutthroat track “Come Outside,” where she gives a shoutout to the St. Clair neighborhood (where she grew up), to the fourth track “Bag Lady,” where she samples Erykah Badu’s 2000 hit, IDGAF is an ode to creating your own narrative, and defining who you are instead of allowing others to define you for you ..read more

Growing up in the Boston area, Letters to Cleo singer Kay Hanley benefited from a very eclectic local AM radio station that played a mix of music that would never work in today’s genre-specific world. “That AM radio station would play Wings before Little River Band before Dolly Parton and Donna Summer, depending on who the DJ was,” says Hanley via phone from Los Angeles where she was working on sound effects for the animated show Kindergarten: The Musical. Letters to Cleo performs at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 29, at the Grog Shop in Cleveland Heights ..read more
