This event is 21 and over
Scott Weaver & co.’s Thursday night parties at Snug Harbor have become legendary. Many people have not made it into work or to class on Fridays since this madness began.
After a wild night of drinking & dancing, the running joke…”I got SHIPWRECKED at SHIPROCKED!” has become a staple of conversations for many in Plaza-Midwood.
Queer Rapper / Spoken Word artist from Berlin!
Sookee, queer feminist rapper, has lived 27 of 29 years of her life in Berlin, Germany. She initially discovered hiphop through graffiti, but found out quickly that images generated by words are up her alley, much more than those on walls. She encountered feminist theory & the code of practice in her university studies. Today she gives lectures on (hetero-)sexism in hiphop, but is also concerned with subversive and progressive capabilities of subcultures. Her music critizes hierarchical and normative formations as well as empowers oppositional identities. Therefore, her topics aren't easy to digest but never dogmatic.
