There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Laura Pergolizzi is a force to be reckoned with. She’s crazy weird, makes music that can’t be confined to any genre space, and has incredible style caught somewhere between pirate and grunge rocker. Her musical ferocity can be felt on what is probably her most popular song, the achingly relatable, foot-stomping folk-pop jam “Lost On You,” from her 2016 album of the same name. You may think you’ve never heard LP’s music or lyrics, but you probably have: She has written songs for a range of artists, from Rihanna to the Backstreet Boys to Cher. But now’s the time to get to know her as a solo artist, the type of artist who, once you discover, you ask yourself “Why the hell didn’t I discover her sooner?” With no new album to promote, she’s just bringing her old music and her authenticity to 9:30 Club. Like her music, she’s honest, raw, and carefree, serving looks like a witchy extra from The Craft. Authenticity is a market she has cornered.
