It’s the ’70s and that means it’s time to do a little dance, make a little love and, obviously, get down tonight. Munroe Lilly is here and wants to get down with you. Won’t you join him?

1. What is your favorite thing about the ’70s?

I love the ’70s for the clothes, hair and the overall vibe. It was about free love, peace, happiness, and fighting war through music and protest. Add in the psychedelic drugs and you have basically the perfect decade.

2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?

Honestly, I would love to have drinks with a lot of people from that decade. ’70s-era Diana Ross, Cher, and Tina turner. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, David Bowie. And on and on… they all encompass/ed a specific kind of strength that I identify with and that’s having the courage to do and be exactly who they want to be both on and off the stage. They all were/are so electric as performers and yet were/are complicated people. I see a lot of myself in all of them.

3. Is there anyone from today you think embodies the idea of the ’70s?

My very good friend Lillian! (who happens to be the ‘Lilly’ in Munroe Lilly.) She’s such a gentle spirit. I call her my bohemian goddess. She has a great deal of that specific kind of courage that I admire. She does what she wants and on her terms with an air of beauty, truth, and love.

Come see Munroe Lilly, the “Black diamond: Rare and Beautiful” at the Triad on 4/22. TICKETS! 

The ’60s: To Hellz and Back

 The ’60s were explosive, uprooting everything from music to art to fashion to politics and taking us from the staid ’50s to the “anything goes” ’70s. Hellz Kitten is obsessed with the ’60s, so who better to represent this debaucherous decade?

 1. What is your favorite thing about the ’60s?
I love everything about the ’60s, from the clothes to the music. I like how the decade started out buttoned up and conservative, but by the end, all bets were off and YOLO was the name of the game. I mean it probably wasn’t good for society, but it looks like a lot of fun.
 
2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
Well, Don Draper, obviously, since I’m obsessed with Mad Men and because despite all his faults, he’s a gentleman who knows how to treat a lady (at least in the moment).
Cheers
 But I’d also like to get into Jim Morrison’s leather pants.

Or maybe a young(ish) Marlon Brando (although he’d probably bore you death with his causes all night).

I’d love to see Janis Joplin live.

Badass

And maybe someone who could teach me how to do a cat-eye properly.

3. Is there anyone from today you think embodies the idea of the ’60s?
I’m hopeless about today’s pop culture, unless Wendy Williams is talking about on Hot Topics. But there are a lot of songs on my “Hipster Cocktail Party” Pandora station that sound kinda neo-groovy, so I’ll go with that.
Come get groovy with Hellz Kitten on April 22 at The Triad.
