Stick around after the show! In the next room is HeartBeeps, a long-running dance party spanning 5 years at the legendary Atlanta nightclub MJQ featuring DJ Taradactyl who keeps the dance floor lit mixing anthemic cuts from the 80’s-90’s, indie faves, r&b classics past and present, plus so much more! Must be 21+ to enter MJQ.
A former art director whose creative career started with a $100 Casio keyboard at a college in Los Angeles, CIFIKA has covered a lot of ground in under two years. Initially inspired by discovering that Washed Out’s Within and Without was recorded in a bedroom, her music runs a gamut closer to Jamie xx, Fever Ray, FKA twigs, and 90s Korean pop escapee Lee Sang-eun. K-pop superstar and songwriter Jonghyun has praised CIFIKA, suggesting she’s already beginning to weigh on mainstream Korean culture, but her ambitions look beyond: she’s recently said her current goal is to sing in Korean for a set at a global music festival.
FEE LION is the new-wave-pop, witch disco output of solo musicatrix Justina Kairyte. Fusing together soft, haunting melodies with gritty dance rhythms, FEE LION creates a powerfully minimal sonic haze for her entrancing, evocative vocal hooks to soar above. Think Fiona Apple spending the night at Johnny Jewel’s house, says Bullett Magazine. Kairyte’s wholesome attention to detail manifests in her live shows which are filled with fog, glossy latex, sweaty dancers and a dark, visual concept that wraps the room in an undulating hypnotic blanket. A sensative musician, “Kairyte weaves together delicate webs of guitar distortion, a skeletal postpunk guitar pattern, minimal drum loops, a downcast key melody, and a faint hum that sounds like vocal samples slowed to a near halt.” -Chicago Reader
