s.M.i.L.e. is excited to announce another deadly double-header of Philadelphia's DJ HARAM (Hyperdub/Discwoman) and Vancouver's own DEBBY FRIDAY (Deathbomb Arc) This'll be a late-summer all-nighter, beginning at 12:30 a.m. and going til the early morning. Presale up soon, and in the meantime, RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org for venue info or questions.
Organized on unceded Coast Salish territory, which include the xʷməθkwəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ Indigenous nations colonially known as Vancouver, s.M.i.L.e. stands with Indigenous nations' right to self-determination and autonomy.
DJ Haram is a producer and DJ originally from New Jersey, currently based in Philadelphia. Stylistically versatile, she throws down for Jersey, Philly, and Baltimore with club and booty bounce sets but also has been known to pay homage to her roots in the tradition of Middle Eastern dance music and of DIY noise and experimental sound. DJ Haram (along with Moor Mother) is 1/2 of the noise/rap group 700 BLISS.
★★★DEBBY FRIDAY (DJ SET)★★★
"Debby Friday’s music ceaselessly circles beauty and brutality, questioning their respective limits and underscoring the possible impossibility of their implicit separations. On her new release BITCHPUNK, Friday echoes, samples, sings, speaks, and reverberates through innumerable Black diasporic sonic geographic landscapes and fields, a churning critique of strict categories... It’s a grounding and a sounding where love/hate and good/evil are named and tuned to revolutionary uses.
Debby Friday states: “who I am is a confrontation." - Mask Mag
