Maggie Lindemann is celebrating International Women’s Day on Monday (March 8) by covering No Doubt’s 1995 hit single “Just a Girl.”
The “Pretty Girl” singer released her cover after releasing her debut EP PARANOIA in January. She announced today that she’ll perform all eight songs from her latest project in a live virtual concert from Los Angeles’ The Roxy on April 9, 2021, at 9 p.m. ET. Her show will also stream in Asia and Australia on April 10 at 8 p.m. AET and in Europe at 8 p.m. GMT. Tickets will go on sale for $15 Friday here.
“I chose to do the ‘Just a Girl’ cover because I felt it was a really appropriate song lyrically for Women’s History Month and I grew up on Gwen Stefani,” the 22-year-old pop singer said in a statement. “My mom loved No Doubt and would always play them, so it just felt right to cover it.”
She told Billboard in a recent interview that she found inspiration from Stefani, No Doubt, Avril Lavigne, Paramore, Evanescence and Flyleaf for her pop-punk sound in her PARANOIA EP.
“I’m so happy to be able to finally do a live show for my EP!! With everything going on right now, it’s been really frustrating to not be able to perform or tour the EP,” she added. “I’ve really been missing the live aspect of what I do, so I’m so excited to be able to do this. We’ve been working for months on it and it’s so cool to see it come to life.”
