President Long Boi “yea ok sure” album release party

Wed May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Free

President Long Boi brings sardonic synth pop & a flair for performance to Madison’s east side on Wednesday, May 1st, with the release of his debut album “yeah ok sure” at Art In, 1444 East Washington Ave. at 7pm. The free event will include a drag show, comedy, and a set by DJ zzisco, following President Long Boi’s performance. Frandu Smith to emcee. All attendees receive free cake. 21+

With a stage name adopted from an internet meme, President Long Boi is a life-long Madison, Wisconsin resident. Playing guitar since he was 15, he discovered his love of performance busking on State St., performing at open mics & doing several features, albums, & shared projects with Art Paul Schlosser, Litl Guillotine, & other Madison artists. With a catalog of features and collabs, President Long Boi realized he needed to work on his own material. He’s currently sequestering himself in his bedroom putting the finishing touches on “yea ok sure”, a synth-heavy pop-rock opus exploring his nihilistic-but-humorous views on modern life. As he laments in “End of World”, one of his pure electronic numbers, with an arrangement modeled on Grimes’ “Oblivion”: “The world revolves around us/but nothing will change.” “It’s just about how we think so much about ourselves…but we don’t really take care of ourselves…We’re going to die from global warming…but it’s still not stopping us” he says. The “yea ok sure” party will also feature unique stage-dressings and props he’s been making over the last few months, “I always want to give my audience something to remember, & maybe even make them a little uncomfortable.”

President Long Boi combines his early classic rock influences such as Nirvana & Japan rock legends Judy and Mary with the pop styles of Prince, New Order, Grimes & Beck, with absurd & sometimes depressing lyrics akin to They Might Be Giants & Fountains of Wayne. His music has been called “crazy as fuck” by audiences, & “fucking bizarre” by comedian Frandu Smith
