Premiere: Jen Awad Delivers Us From Toxic Apathy in “Basic Bitch”

A handful of Sundays ago, designer and musician Jen Awad joined Emma Cole onstage at the Moroccan for a few tracks at Wolf Bay’s single release party. As recorded in our review of the show, Awad hijacked the band for a show-stopping number of her own. That infectious song was “Basic Bitch,” and we are […]
