What is it about Stanford-educated, indie rock-flavored hip-hop artists/psychology majors trying so hard to surprise us? Yes, Kristine Flaherty has one o’ those “eclectic musical pasts” you hear about; Parliament-Funkadelic, Missy Elliot, Liz Phair, etc. And yes, she’s performed with the likes of Snoop (Doggy) Dog, Ludacris and 3OH!3. And oh(!), she’s also her own producer. Whoop-de-doo. K.Flay, if you want to really impress us, you’ll have to give up something juicier before your set at T.T. the Bear’s Place tonight. Hmm? What’s that? Robot bear?! You know us … well. Psych degree’s payin’ off.
