    Tkay Maidza

    Heralded as a lively reset of Tkay Maidza’s eclectic pop and R&B framework, Sweet Justice arrived on 4AD last year to break up with past boundaries. The sleek, synth-led, bass-heavy collaboration with major producers like Kaytranada and Flume followed the artist’s Last Year Was Weird EP trilogy, which stretched over three years and 24 songs. The Zimbabwean-born, Australian-raised, and now Los Angeles-based artist returns following a set at ACL Fest 2021. – Rachel Rascoe

    Dorian Electra, Frost Children, atlgrandma [outside]

    Houston-born provocateur Dorian Electra promises gleeful genderfuckery and high-camp hyperpop as addictive as Mountain Dew. Like fellow genre-dodging pioneers/past collaborators 100 gecs, the performance artist mashes experimental pop, punk, and baroque stylings with reckless abandon, amalgamating in a highly theatrical output that drips with queer sex appeal. Since retiring their signature eyeliner-drawn pencil mustache, the artist remains equally playful with presentation as with genre, donning an Edwardian-era bodice reminiscent of a slutty Sgt. Pepper on recent album Fanfare’s cover. Supporting siblings Frost Children return their euphoric glitchcore to Austin after last spring’s electrifying SXSW sets, while atlgrandma supplies tongue-in-cheek digital pop. – Genevieve Wood

    Past Deposits From a Future Yet to Come

    Since 1990, artists Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler have worked collaboratively on art centered on how “histories, social life, and memories intersect.” Recently commissioned by Waterloo Greenway, these artists created a public video art installation featuring historic artifacts such as buttons, plates, and marbles “suspended in a rhythmic free fall, a choreographed parade.” These artifacts come from the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory, unearthed from Waller Creek about two decades ago. Take in this art on its opening night, or any night following, as the installation will be on display one hour after sunset for the next five years. – James Scott
