“It’s an honor to represent Philly and Pennsylvania at this inauguration event. These are challenging times and I believe that art and performance can help point the way to a more open-minded future in this country,” said Adam Weiner. “I love the idea that Kamala and Joe were watching my Tough Cookies show with me rolling around half naked singing ’90s techno with a cheese grater in my hands and were like ‘This is what we need!'”
Last weekend, Low Cut Connie performed the 72nd installment of his twice-weekly variety livestream show “Tough Cookies.” The 73rd episode will take place this Saturday, January 22 at 6:00 pm ET (Sunday, January 23 10AM AEDT). In addition to live performances and riotous commentary, Adam Weiner has recently interviewed artists and personalities such as Darlene Love and Nick Hornby on the show.
In October, Low Cut Connie released his critically-acclaimed 6th studio album Private Lives via Contender Records. The release followed endorsements from the likes of Elton John and Joe’s old pal Barack. The album was praised by The New Yorker, who dubbed Adam Weiner the “Pandemic Person of the Year,” as well Rolling Stone included it on their “50 Best Albums of 2020” list at #34 and said, “Philly’s patron saint of ass-shakers let his ambitions run wild on his band’s Private Lives, a 17-song double album that somehow doesn’t drag.”
