Philly Show Review:Betty Who at Union Transfer

So, Aussie pop diva Betty Who really loves to perform, you guys. 

No, she really, really, really loves to perform and make the stage–as well as the audience–her bitch for the night in the most fabulous way possible. 

Just ask the many, many throngs of fans who packed it in at Union Transfer for her show in support of her excellent and delicious new album, The Valley, and they’ll tell you that she takes no prisoners when it comes to that stage…and we lived for every woke moment of Ms. Who real that was served out last night. 

Launching an hour long set that included pretty much every song from Valley (hey there, “Mama Say,” “You Can Cry Tomorrow,” “Free to Fly” and sigh…”I Love You Always Forever”), as well as rainbow kissed thunder, “Somebody Loves You,” and a fancy fine display talents of the guitar. Who knew? All of us. 

But of course, we must show all of the love to those fucking pulsating live pipes (seriously, tho) and fucking fierce dance moves that were matched perfectly to the two muscular backup dancers who equally stole the show because, well, ay, dios mio. Speaking of..hey there, Mr. Tattoos. #callme

And the moment she remembered a fan from a show in Boston? (hey, Kevin!) Fucking priceless. 

But the true spotlight stealer of the night were the tears that flowed in Ms. Betty Who‘s eyes during the whole set because of all of the love that was felt from the crowdin which you now know it must have been one hell of a show at Union Transfer last night. 

That’s because it most certainly was. Yes, Ms. Betty Who….yaaas. 

For much, much more on Betty Who, read this and stay tuned for her grand return to Philly because she’ll most certainly be back.  



The 10:All About Betty Who

On Monday night, sassy and sauce-y Australian pop diva, the always fabulous, Betty Who, is about to hit the stage at Union Transfer (730 pm, 1028 Spring Garden St.) for a show (and in support of her fantastic new album, The Valley) that’s guaranteed to cash your Philly live performance paycheck and start your week off in the most incredible way. 

Although there might be a few of you out there who’re absolutely aware of everything the cheeky Aussie pop goddess has to offer (she’s blessed the City of Brotherly Love with her magnetic presence quite a few times), there also be might a few if you out there who’re saying “who??” to the likes of the quirky, ready, happy music business provided by Ms. Betty Who

And if that’s the case…read this and then grab those tickets. Because you must. 

1.She’s got love for “Somebody” and everybody….  As any proper pop diva do, Betty Who first got our fabulous attention when her cheeky, rainbow kissed life banger, “Somebody Loves You,” was featured in a Home Depot video featuring two fine young boys who got engaged, got hitched (she also went to her wedding…break some mugs with Betty right here) and lived happily ever after. 

While there are truly no words to describe how god damn cute this stunning viral clip was and always will be…we do have one thing to say…”Yaaaaas, Betty Who queens, yaaaas.” 

2.Because we must always respect our music divas from down under…   Kylie Minogue & Olivia Newton John. No further statements. 

3.Her debut album, ‘Take Me When You Go,’ is nothing shirt of werk.   In 2014, Mizz Betty released her stellar debut set, Take Me When You Go, and, well, it’s nothing short of fucking amazing. From start to finish, not only does each tantalizing track showcase just how dazzling she and those pulsating pipes truly are, but each shimmering pop ditty plays out like a music dream, flowing along and taking you on a real music ride.

The perfect mix of light rock, ’80s beats and punch-ey synths, Who’s freshman set will not only get you all up in a music kitchen dance party, but it’s just light enough to bring you down at the end of a disco blessed night. Album standouts, “Runaways,” “High Society,” “Alone Again,” “Somebody Loves You,” and Philly Mixtape‘s favorite, “All Of You,” will take your breath away…and leave you wanting more. Which is the best part of it all. Go on Spotify or wherever tickles your music streaming fancy and get lost in it all…right now. Seriously. But read the rest of the list before you Go...

4.Her cover of Donna Lewis’ ’90s smash, ‘I Love You Always Forever” is……   god damn life within itself. Just listen…and prepare to get lost. And if there’s anyone who needs a reading, err, less the fab Ms. Lewis, go right here. right now. That’s an order.  

5.Seriously, though….   

6.Those moves from her recent “Mama Say” video….  Killer. Enough said. Now, dance. 

7.This….  Get ready to feel all sorts of “Wonderful,” indeed. 

8.Her 2013 single, ‘You’re in Love,” will make you feel tingly all over   Try not to fall in, um, love with those powerful vocal arrangements and that undeniable power rock ballad prowess. Or the fine gentleman featured in the accompanying music video, either. 

9.And of course, one more time…. Because…life. 

10.Do you really need another Ms. Who fact?   Absolutely not. Now, grab those tickets to her show at Union Transfer Monday night and prepare to blown away…because you most certainly will be. 






Kiesza and Betty Who Owned the TLA Stage Last Night

Last night, Philly Mixtape had the absolute pleasure of seeing both Betty Who and Kiesza destroy the stage at the TLA. First up was saucy diva-from-down under, Ms. Betty, whose set was laced with a healthy serving of the music goodies from her amazing, ‘Take Me When You Go,’ record. Among the tracks she delightfully performed were “Runaways,” “Glory Days,’ and also “All Of You,” which she kicked off with as mid-tempo piano version, then eventually launching into its explosive pop rock form, which certainly put the crowd to work. However, the highlight of the Ms. Who portion of the evening was when she closed her dazzling set and rocked out with her LGBT anthem, “Somebody Loves You,” and we certainly loved Betty Who in all of her blonde-bob Aussie pop glory last night.



After a short break, it was time to have a dance party with deep house diva, Kiesza-and that’s just what we did for her entire set. Performing pretty much every track from her wonderfully brilliant (and vastly overlooked), ‘Sound of a Woman,’ record, Ms. Kiesza danced, bopped, grooved, and absolutely sung her little music heart out. Personal highlights include her sex-bedroom laced version of Hideaway’s ’93 hit, “What is Love,” and her live take on “So Deep” took us all to the deepest levels of the music sea. Another highlight, the high kicking, “No Enemiesz,” is a tantalizing treat to see live because that choreography is just on point, honey. Throw in a jacked up live version of her Jack Ü banger, “Take Ü There,” and Kiesza proved once again that she’s a force to be reckoned with on that coveted stage.


When it came to end the evening(sigh…), it was on a bit of a somber note as Kiesza announced that Philly would be the last stop for her and Ms. Who on their tour. You can tell that the flame-haired groove goddess was a bit emotional delivering the news, which really says that she–along with Betty–are really in it to continually bring us that music love–and that’s exactly what both bright-haired divas did at the TLA last night.
