When: Sat., April 2, 9 p.m. 2016
Discwoman is a music collective and online platform that started in New York with DJs Frankie Hutchinson, Emma Burgess-Olson, and Christine Tran, who came together to find a way to create spaces for female and gender nonconforming DJs and producers. Since its inception, the organization has thrown parties in over fifteen cultural hubs such as Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Toronto, and worked with over 150 emerging artists. Now, Discwoman is collaborating with Bay Area DJs and party throwers 8ulentina and Foozool, who started the genre-defying monthly dance party Club Chai earlier this year. At the Club Chai x Discwoman party at Alena Studios on April 2, residents Foozool and 8ulentina will be behind the decks alongside local DJs Namaste Shawty, Jasmine Infiniti, and Discwoman co-founder Hutchinson, who performs as Bearcat.
