Keyke The Girl

Keyke is a girl, and that might be all we need to know. However, my affinity for verbosity prohibits me from leaving it at that, so:

Keyke is a girl and sometimes her hair changes colors and sometimes she makes up songs while she’s singing them and sometimes she plays in the East Village and that’s where i first saw her. She made up most of the songs on the spot. It’s a variety of spontanaeity rarely seen in the music world, and a demonstration of artistry that i found pretty impressive. And cool. Phat. Deadly.

Keyke makes a ton of her own videos, and they are also phat.

There was an idea i had that didn’t work. Well, i wanted to put her on a carousel. I got the idea from the Q train on the Manhattan bridge. I kept seeing that carousel by the river and i wanted to put her on it and have her play a song. So we went all the way there and saw that the carousel was mobbed and as we stared at it revolving over the hills of Brooklyn, Keyke pointed out that it would be blasting carousel music as well, which is something i never thought of in the two months i had been planning it.

So, as usual, when my initial plans didn’t work out, we just walked around for a while until we found some stairs in a wall. It was perfect.

She sat down and played a song about being a girl/woman/human/alien.

She’s not like everybody else.
