Leslie & The LY’s, Team Gina, LA Kendall, Colby B
(Neumo’s) Fuck Fergie and her G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T. Leslie of Leslie & the LY’s may have tacky blue eye shadow, ridiculous giant librarian glasses from 1975, and a gold lamé jumpsuit stretched over about 30 extra pounds, but at least she’s never peed her pants onstage or collaborated with will.i.am. “Next time when I’m waiting in line and I’m looking really fresh and fine/I’m gonna say ladies, take a good look at Glamour Lady Plus!” she sings on “Real Gold Glamorous.” Leslie & the LY’s dance beats are as smooth and tight as her lamé, and her lyrics are littered with humor. Gold bless ‘em. MEGAN SELING
And for a special Leslie treat, check out this video of the Rock Olympics she did with Scream Club during last year’s Capitol Hill Block Party:
