ArtForum has called the project, A 24- Decade History of Popular Music, a “face-wrenchingly funny…chronicle of sex, repression, expression, and community” and said, “Mac is a master performer, riveting storyteller, and charismatic, otherworldly creature, dressed to the tens in artist/designer Machine Dazzle’s magnificent metamorphic glitz.”
The Royce Hall performance will feature a five-piece band and surprise L.A.-based guest artists, including Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles®— America’s first all-female mariachi ensemble.
