DJ Keezy is a product of North Minneapolis who has been making waves in the Twin Cities for 7 years. She is a curator of many dance nights within the Twin Cities that hold safe spaces for BIPOC LGBTQIA+ people, including The Klituation dance party that launched in 2015 in First Avenue’s mainroom. Keezy was named City Pages’ Twin Cities Best Club DJ of 2017. Christopher Rochester is an African American musician, educator, and composer who has been working at the professional level for 15 years. Chris was exposed to many Black American cultural practices during his youth, and was fortunate enough to be able to quickly understand how much influence that culture plays in music. Northrop is standing with Twin Cities theater companies to present a free Zoom screening of A Breath for George; a collection of songs, interviews and poems created by New Dawn Theatre and Minnesota artists to: honor Floyd’s life; speak to this moment and moments past openly and honestly; and to share avenues which promote hope and positive changes for the future. A Breath for George gives voices to the ways Black citizens and residents historically have been negatively affected emotionally, physically, and financially by systemic racism and nationwide police violence. Donations will be accepted for local charities. Sapphire is a pop-punk, singer-songwriter group composed of Indigo Koonce (they/them) on lead guitar, Henry Breen (he/him) on drums, Ava Levy (she/her) on vocals and guitar, and Lily Govrik (she/her) on vocals and bass. Lady Midnight is an experience. She is an ethereal vocalist and performance artist who draws upon her multidisciplinary background in visual art, dance and Afro-indigenous roots to create work that timelessly reflects our collective lives. Lady Midnight is one half of the group Parables of Neptune, a duo with Afrokeys (former keyboardist of Atmosphere).
