♫♪  QT - Ray-Ban x Boiler Room LA Performance

Remember that SOPHIE live post I wrote that was taken down? Well, THAT and the QT sets are free HERE right now, so click.

If “The greatest trick the Devil ever played was convincing the world he was real,” does this live video of QT make her pure evil? Like, I KNOW this drink ain’t real, but perception of reality and “The Devil” are all internally defined. Shit, possibly even Miles Bowe can be internally defined. Gotta call that guy back…

Anyhow, QT is some fuck’d “live zones.” And I love how love/hate PC Music has become now in the world. So, in light of that, I’ve collected some opinions:

“PC Music is like sugary pop music disemboweled.” — Bort

“There’s definitely a pastiche to the appropriation of Japanese kawaii tropes used here, but I can’t put my fingers on ‘em.” — [quotes self?]

“QT’s my brand, it’s my go-to shit. I mean, I wake up and swig one — it’s like that sometimes. Whenever I do an imaginary set for Boiler Room, I use QT like a pair of sunglasses — makes it so I can’t see anyone, ever again… makes me be who I want to be… reading mags, hot, sunglasses on, my special drink in hand, in front of 30 people in the dark.” — SCVSCV

“Should this exist IRL? Quote me. Fuck, I just got hot mustard on my banana. Seriously.” — KK

“Not my cup of T.” — JasonC

“I’ve already seen the Manchurian Candidate, Cliff” — Monet Maker

“I don’t have time to watch this because I’m at work but I skimmed through the eric wareheim bit and decided i still don’t like him and his presence is too obvious esp w this vid, like, c’mon the whole fake performer thing is an a way-too-easy gloss on the whole revaluing/reframing of mass culture jam that sophie does without the more complicated interactions formed by sophie’s, like, chops, man, but hey I love this set” — Jeff Ravioli

“Is this chick just chilling out or doing a performance? Nope, never mind. Live action commercial?? I don’t understand.” — Mikey

“I like the performative aspects of the sets — disruptive in a good way.” — Mr. P
