Her first performance was at Elektricity three years ago, and she’s had a residency there ever since, adding that she likes to showcase music her audience has never heard before. See this DJ do her thing with after catching show openers Dopeadelic, Trill Clinton, and Cameron Oakley. Fun Fakt, Food Fight, and Ruxxpin will spin on the patio. Get in free with RSVP before 11. (18+) $7.50
