May 7: A Bed-Stuy Function with Juliana Huxtable, Tygapaw, Bearcat, Papi Juice, FXWRK and stud1nt (KUNQ) @ Sugarhill
Over the past few years, Bed-Stuy has become a hotbed of innovative dance music and party culture. On May 7, we bring some of the Brooklyn neighborhood’s most groundbreaking party collectives and DJs together at Sugarhill. Juliana Huxtable’s bold creative vision has brought her art and performance pieces to New York’s MoMA, New Museum and the Guggenheim, after co-founding the women-led Shock Value party in 2014. She’s joined on the bill by Tygapaw, the DJ and producer behind Fake Accent, a party/collective that highlights the work of queer and trans people of color – a founding principle shared by the Papi Juice crew, who will take to the decks as well. KUNQ – represented on this occasion by FXWRK and stud1nt – initially started throwing parties in Massachusetts, but have since found their footing among the ever-growing group of dance music activists carving out safe spaces for marginalized communities in NYC nightlife. The lineup is rounded out by Bearcat, the London-born, Brooklyn-based Discwoman affiliate who has been making noise internationally with her excellent and wide-ranging DJ mixes. Join us as we celebrate NYC club culture at its most inclusive.
