When: Fri., Jan. 11, 10 p.m. 2019
Producer Chris Liggio, one half of pop duo Lipstick Gypsy, has remixed and/or produced for numerous, stylistically disparate artists such as Kelly Osbourne, Passion Pit and Jay-Z. His versatility behind the scenes lends itself well to his current project with charismatic vocalist John Thomas. Together, the pair makes smooth and sexy funk-laden tunes that bridge the gap between classic artists like Sade and contemporary pop heroes such as Shawn Mendes. The band charges its hip-thrusting beats and syrupy melodies with carnal energy. Lipstick Gypsy perform on Friday, January 11, at Radio Bean in Burlington.
