Sexy Ester Rocks '80s Flair

The Madison band takes inspiration from the decade of their youth

When Sexy Ester formed in early 2009, the five-member band incorporated influences from their childhood.

“It took on this new-wave edge,” says frontwoman Lyndsay Evans. “We grew up listening to ’80s pop.”

Yet Sexy Ester has a sound all its own, and Madison loves it—if the four Madison Area Music Awards the group garnered last year are any indication. Since then, the dynamic band’s been performing and released a new album.

This month, catch them at Wurst Times, a May 27 festival at the High Noon Saloon, Brass Ring and Brink Lounge that benefits the Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin.
