Line-up /JD Samson (dj set), Rusty Lazer (dj set), American Royalty (live)
- JD SAMSON -
We're really excited to bring you guys a DJ set from JD Samson, the LGBT icon and famously androgynous member of feminist band Le Tigre. Most of her projects have revolved around sexual identity and acceptance. She also co-founded "Dykes Can Dance," a conceptual dance group which performs spontaneously around New York. Currently Samson is working on her new band and art-performance collective MEN. Formed in 2007 with fellow Le Tigre member Johanna Fateman, the Brooklyn-based band has since been joined by Ladybug Transistor's Michael O'Neill and Ginger Brooks Takahashi. MEN released their debut album Talk About Body via IAMSOUND in February 2011.
- RUSTY LAZER -
Hailing from New Orleans, DJ Rusty Lazer finds inspiration in his hometown's street music. In his sets, listeners will get a taste of the Big Easy as he combines the infectious beat of Mardi Gras, the brassiness of Jazz, and NOLA's modern-day block party hip-hop. He currently works with LGBT dance music icons like Big Freedia and Sissy Nobby and has created a non-profit called New Orleans Airlift, an organization that helps import and export culture to and from New Orleans.
- AMERICAN ROYALTY -
American Royalty is an experimental electro outfit hailing from Los Angeles. With their danceable beats and energetic vibe, these guys know how to get a crowd moving! They released their EP El Ardemo via Guns In The Suns in December 2010. It is available for purchase on BandCamp.
