A Night at the Starline with Kreayshawn and Friends

A sweaty dance party with seizure-inducing BPMs.


Even though Kreayshawn never followed up the success of her 2012 hit “Gucci Gucci” and her rap career didn’t quite pan out, the mixes on her Mixcloud page attest to her creativity and skills as a DJ. She curates eclectic selections of house and Jersey club beats, 8-bit, rap, juke, footwork, and more, and her hyperactive sets typically include seizure-inducing BPMs and artfully chopped-up samples. Kreayshawn returns to Oakland to spin at Starline Social Club for Wine & Bowties’ latest party, A Night at the Starline with Kreayshawn & Friends. Brontez Purnell — a dancer, author, and the bandleader of punk trio Younger Lovers — and local DJs Neto, Namaste Shawty, and Julia Lewis will be performing, as well. Expect a sweaty night of dancing to new and obscure rap and club music subgenres with some Top 40 thrown into the mix.
