I am spinning the opening reception of Surveyor, a solo exhibition of work by Victoria Long-Wincza (Hamilton Conservatory of the Arts wonderwoman!) at HAVN this Saturday. Come look at her great work and listen to the sweet sounds of some psychedelic pop spun by moi. Later in the night, the opening will become a full on birthday bash with more tunes by DJ Nathan Lovesspacesships.

Dj-ed the Moonlight Desires Prom Party with the Student Council last Saturday and had a blast. These parties will happen a few times a year and I feel lucky to be a part of the action! We've started a Tumblr Page and a Facebook group-- keep an eye on them!

The Justseeds Artists Cooperative opening party at Hammer City Records a few weeks ago was a BLAST. Thanks to Craig and Leah of Hammer City Records, celebrity DJs Donna Lovejoy, Carla Coma and Mary Mack for the tunes, and Mary Tremonte of Justseeds for all her help putting this incredible event together. Epic all-lady DJ line ups must happen more often!

After a loooong hiatus (aside from an impromptu DJ set at an art opening in November), I'll be spinning at the next installment of Discography at the Baltimore House-- my debut as a Hamilton resident! In honour of Women's History Month, I'll be starting the night off and local DJ mama Donna Lovejoy is headlining. We will both be playing alongside resident Discography DJs Mark and Andy. I went to the last installment of Discography two Sundays ago and boy, was it impressive. If you're reading this, love dancing, eclectic musical mixes and are in the Hammer, don't miss out!
