Solo Nation

An interview with Emily Saliers

A long time in the making, Emily Saliers’ Murmuration Nation (Emily Saliers Music) is the Indigo Girl’s solo debut album. Worth the wait, the 12-song album reveals a thrilling new side to Saliers, beginning with the rocking and riveting opener “Spider,” and continuing with the dance break in “Serpent Love,” the moody and rhythmic “I’m High I’m On High,” and the various shifts in “Hello Vietnam.” Naturally, Saliers doesn’t forsake longtime fans, as is evident on “Train Inside,” “Slow Day Friend” and “Sad One.” I spoke with Emily about the album and the state of the world in early autumn 2017.

Well-Kept

An interview gay writer and musician

Admit it. Ever since you read Robert Rodi’s first novel, 1992’s Fag Hag, you’ve been waiting for someone to adapt it, or one of his others (including Drag Queen, Closet Case, and Bitch Goddess) into a movie. Well, you got your wish. Kept Boy (Breaking Glass), directed by George Bamber (The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green), with a screenplay by David Ozanich, is the movie adaptation of Rodi’s 1996 novel of the same name. Dennis (Jon Paul Phillips), the titular “kept boy”, is the object of the affections (both romantic and monetary) of Farleigh (Thure Riefenstein), a home-design reality TV star. However, the arrival of a hot new co-host, former pool boy Jasper (Greg Audino), threatens Dennis’s very existence. I spoke with Robert about the book and movie, now available on DVD, in September 2017.

Leslie Grossman loves Baltimore like a vampire craves blood

“American Horror Story: Cult,” the seventh season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series, premiered this month on FX, taking aim at the current political landscape in America. “Cult” explores the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election and tackles the divisive reality of the US today. Joining the cast of “AHS” powerhouses Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Cheyenne Jackson is actress Leslie Grossman. Grossman recently chatted with Baltimore OUTloud to discuss her upcoming role in “Cult,” her love for Bravo’s “Real Housewives,” and her Baltimore connection.

Fresh energy and vision at Baltimore Choral Arts

Ella Fitzgerald once said, “Music is the universal language... it brings people closer together.” No one is more fluent in that language than Baltimore Choral Arts Society’s newly named musical director Anthony Blake Clark. A conductor and composer who’s led choral and orchestral ensembles in the US and Europe, Clark is the third musical director in Baltimore Choral Arts’ 51-year history. The Texan-native recently chatted with Baltimore OUTloud about his passion for music, his new position, and his vision for infusing Baltimore communities with music.

Life’s Her Cabaret

An interview with Bridget Everett

A fixture on the alt-cabaret circuit for years, Bridget Everett is the definition of a force to be reckoned with. Possessing a voice that rattles walls and windows, Everett is a dynamic singer, where she’s performing solo or with her band, Tender Moments. Currently Everett can be seen giving an outstanding dramatic performance as Barb, mother to the titular Patti in the movie Patti Cake$ (Fox Searchlight), written and directed by Geremy Jasper. I spoke with Bridget in August 2017, shortly before the film opened in theaters.
