Poorgrrl is the creation of Miami performance artist Tara Long who took a character birthed on Instagram and turned her into a recording artist / local sensation garnering intrigue and attention from local and national media alike. Her debut performance at III Points Festival in Wynwood last October consisted of a troupe of B girls dancing around her, her squad blazing on a couch and Andrew Byrd her musical collaborator on the decks providing her tunes to rap and sing to. Noted to be one of the most memorable performances Poorgrrrl was even asked to grace the cover of the Miami New Times’ ( The Village Voice of Miami ) Art Basel Edition seen by tens of thousands of visitors from all over the planet. She went on to performing at the opening of the ICA during Basel as well as the Littlest Sister show at Spinello Projects. Poorgrrrl is hungry so I took her somewhere we could get her fed. It turns out she has an appetite for something so much more that cannot be bought in stores.
