"It AIN'T Patrick's Day this year on Sunday, March 17th -- it's a night to celebrate our queer, trans, Black, Brown, and femme angels gracing the South. We are so lucky, amiright?
Please continue to party but leave your green at the door. :~)
Diaspoura (on tour from SC):
>> Diaspoura is a downtempo electronic producer and new media artist from a highway hotel in rural South Carolina. Their newest two-track release Traumaporn is a developed study of sounds encompassing both power and vulnerability using their iconic rigid beats, bells, and dense harmonies. Released on NYLON Magazine this December, Diaspoura's newest music video Glisten "explains what it means to be a real ally" featuring a complete cast and crew of brilliant femme, trans, and nonbinary people of color under 30.
TAYLOR ALXNDR (on tour from ATL):
>> TAYLOR ALXNDR is a DIY queer pop musician based out of Atlanta, GA. Mixing synthpop with identity politics and social commentary, her music makes you think and makes you dance.
Reviewed by Bandcamp Daily, Taylor's newest EP Hologram "is a lovely record, streetlamp-shimmery and radiator-warm, a reminder of the power of interpersonal thoughtfulness and kindness in marginalized communities, and a necessity for these bleak times."
>> ASA is a radical agender & agenre rapper, producer, and dancer. Based in Durham, NC having supported artists such as ZenSoFly by dance, she most recently came out with her own 4 track EP Transformation in 2018. She now rules all aspects of the show as Goddexx of the Cruel Worlds.
>> ZenSoFly is a hypnotic rapper hailed by the Indy Week as the "Upstart Raleigh club charmer and image guru." She is celebrated by some as the "mayor" of the city's new music identity; a thunderous performer of playfully buoyant music."
