The B-52s changed the music world with their fusion of Surrealism, sci-fi, kitsch-spitting Americana realism and forbidden dance-party music. Their Top 10 hits “Love Shack” and “Roam” were just the tip of the iceberg. Co-founder Kate Pierson has one of most distinctive and soulful female voices in the business, and now she’s coming to City Winery Chicago to showcase her newfound solo side. Having recently released a solo album with songwriting help from her friend Sia, she’s taking the opportunity to delve into more personal issues in her music now, such as trans rights. With a voice that alternately soars, hovers and levitates between steely and red-hot, she reveals herself as a force for a new generation.
