As Madeline Minx, I formed Pushy with Olivia Herd and producer DJ Doubleclick. Herd and I attended a Ween concert where we came up with Pushy as tent for all kinds of things -- poptronica, film productions, press and even a political party!
Herd and I made a splash at SXSW where we debuted our music video Suck it Up as well as Pushy buttons and bumper stickers (with slogans like Getting Nowhere? Get Pushy, Eat Pushy and Sushi? No, Pushy). The following year, we released our tape Poptronica on cassette. We made our Pushy presence even pushier at SXSW, this time passing out our poptronica tapes, performing on the fly on street corners and at networking events, and staging a motorcade to announce our political campaign "Pushy for President and First Lady."
After Pushy dissolved, I continued to perform all over the SF Bay Area and beyond as a solo artist. Independent record label Radio Charlie Records released a vinyl record containing my single Unleash Your Soul and club remixes by Goldchains and Kit Clayton. The mixes have appeared on numerous dance charts around the country, and heavy rotation on radio stations New York’s WHCR, Chicago’s WCRX and Lexington’s WLKT.
My live music performances include the main stage of the Castro Halloween party this October, South By Southwest Music Festival, North by Northwest, the Exotic Erotic Ball at Cow Palace Arena, and the Folsom Street Fair - San Francisco’s largest leather fair, attended by 30,000. I've performed at Pianos and Lit in New York City and at San Francisco clubs including the Great American Music Hall, Bottom of the Hill, Paradise Lounge, Studio Z, Trannyshack, Hotel Utah, Tongue and Groove, Storyville and Broadway Studios.
