PERFORMER: 

DJ KEEZY

When you orchestrate the best new party in the Twin Cities, you get named Best Club DJ — it’s that simple. And that’s exactly what DJ Keezy has done with the Klituation. With the help of Sophia Eris, BdotCroc, and Maria Isa, the all-woman dance night dominated First Avenue’s Mainroom three times in the past year, providing an unparalleled platform for ladies in the Twin Cities hip-hop/R&B scenes.

SPECIAL GUESTS: 

LEXII ALIJAI

I'm Lexii Alijai, spread the word | St. Paul, MN

MARIA ISA

Born in Minnesota to NuyoRican parents (New York-Puerto Ricans), Maria Isa began her arts education at El Arco Iris Center for the Arts in 1992, and quickly progressed from the role of student to the role of singer, songwriter, emcee, instructor and performing artist. Her 2007 M.I. Split Person​alities and 2009 release of Street Politics, has received much critical acclaim using her talent to create social change and labeling her as a woman proud of her heritage.

SARAH WHITE

Sarah White is a nationally recognized singer / songwriter known for her previous projects including Black Blondie and Shiro Dame. Sharing stages and collaborating with artists including Yasiin Bey, K-OS, Macy Gray, King Britt, J*Davey doing everything from live bands & dj sets to vocal soundscapes & acoustic harmonies, her neon soul sound blends sultry electro and afro-futurism.

MANCHITA

Twin Cities' own rap 'hellion,' Manchita (GRRRL PRTY, Tha Clerb), is gearing up to release her debut sola project, One, with Minneapolis-based producer-performer-composer, Bionik (Aaliyah, R. Kelly, Lizzo). Though Bionik is known for his danceable, in-your-face, pulsing, electronic bass music, the EP’s production showcases an unexpected moodiness, tenderness, and an attention to subtlety that is made visible and is amplified by the gritty content of Manchita’s words, and her whispy falsetto. As a whole, the project promises to reveal a more introspective, heavy-hearted body of work centered on love, loss, and survival.

LADY MIDNIGHT

"Lady Midnight has developed her chops by playing in wide-ranging groups like the electro-pop trio VANDAAM and the horn-fueled Afro-Cuban band Malamanya. There's never been a better time to take a closer look at this entrancing singer, however, as she emerges as a solo artist. [...] It's hard not to picture Sade lounging on a yacht in the Caribbean, or Lady Midnight herself coolly driving around town with the top down." —Andrea Swensson, The Current

SHANNON BLOWTORCH

Shannon Blowtorch is an award winning DJ who was named by the City Pages and Star Tribune as being the Best Club DJ multiple times, as well as making the Suntimes top 100 DJs. She currently has a weekly Saturday night show on MPR’s 89.3 The Current. She is the DJ for GRRRL PRTY. She has opened for international acts: Salt N Peppa, Madonna, Juicy J, and Peaches.

DESTINY ROBERTS

Beauty or beast? A relevant question to ask in getting to know Destiny. The St. Paul, MN native brings a familiar and delightful feeling through her art, reminiscent of an old school hip hop and neo soul era, with a strong dose of something well ahead of her time. A true artist and creator, she hand crafts, designs and produces everything she does from music to style, videos, photography, and graphic design pieces.

MAYDA

Mayda is a young yet seasoned Korean Adoptee multi-musician/artist/producer from the land of 10,000 Lakes.

DJ BABYGHOST

Instead of studying for her first-year college courses, DJ Babyghost learned how to mix and used any remaining free time to attend shows and take notes on other DJs. Soon enough, the bookings started rolling in. This recently included a set in the mix of the local lineup at the Cabooze's recent Buckfest, and a set to support EDM duo Bonnie X Clyde at Barfly tonight is in order.
