Galen at the Gershwin

Most Sequenza 21 readers know Galen Brown as the site’s Senior Editor and an intrepid post-minimal composer. But Galen leads another life as well – as a pop singer! He specializes in covers – ironic in cast – of pop songs. Check out his flirtation with YouTube celebrity below – a cover of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” – goth-style!

Galen will be appearing at the Gershwin Hotel this Saturday, performing a set of pop covers that includes songs by Perry, Michael Jackson, and his first time performing Ice-T’s “Cop Killer” live. Also on the bill are Matt Marks and Mellissa Hughes, presenting their own quirky take on pop hits as the “Melly and Mafoo Variety Hour.”
