Better than: Most everything
Matty's on the Drive, a Wilton Manors staple, celebrated its fourth anniversary with chatter about acceptance, drag queens hanging around in street clothes, gays in baseball caps, and genuinely excited Lady Miss Kier superfans. The former Deee-Lite frontwoman brought a butt-ton of attitude, following up Saturday's DJ set with a live performance of Deee-Lite favorites and her own songs on a very tropical stormy Sunday night.
The show was moved inside thanks to the whipping winds of Isaac. Lady Kier was crowded, with her band, into the corner of the bar. Halfway through her set, it became completely clear that the nineties were about a million more times fun than the aughts. Much of that obnoxious nostalgia bred on the web is actually warranted.
