DADT: Resist ft. Alfredo & Dee Diggs


  • Great Scott 1222 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA, 02134 United States (map)

DADT STANDS AGAINST THIS REGIME. 
DONALD TRUMP AND HIS CABINET ARE FRAUDS.
THEY DO NOT HAVE THIS COUNTRY’S BEST INTEREST IN MIND.
THE SWAMP IS DEEPER THAN EVER. 
RESIST.

We must make our voices heard for those who cannot do so.
And we must try to do it with intelligence. 
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the ACLU to help fight the oppression of human rights. 

This month on deck two newcomers to the DADT stage but definitely not the DJ world:

~~~~~~~~
DEE DIGGS
~~~~~~~~
Dee Diggs is a DJ, event curator & organizer based in Boston, MA. 

She is unapologetically black, queer, & femme.

She is building and using her influence to create space for marginalized groups to express & organize themselves. Her aim is to sustain more spaces where these groups are valued and thanked by name for their contributions to humanity. (Thank the OG Black innovators for House & Techno! Thank you, Disco-era Queens & Queers alike for the theatrics & fanfare of nightlife as we know it! etc.) 

Her sound is on the A-side, grounded & self-referential, but on the the B-side, a dreamy and foreign pursuit. Genres & nationalities are merely invisible borders to cross. Trust Dee Diggs to deliver you like a time machine melding crisp seductive mixes & crass stereo blowing radio crunches! 

The real measure of the Dee Diggs experience is the warm vibe that radiates through the room as the booth and the dance floor become one deep in the mix.

ALFREDO
~~~~~~~
As an Artist & Designer, Alfredo has had a hand over countless events and releases, creating visual tokens for some of the most important Artists in Dance Music and Hip-Hop. An Avid Collector, his love for Disco & House accurately displays what he plays as a DJ. In 2011 Together with Brenden Wesley, they founded a monthly Dance Party Called Social Studies, which saw the Boston debut of artist like Honey Soundsystem, Horse Meat Disco, Tony Humphries, The Black Madonna, Moodymann among others. The Format was simple: Disco | House | Techno. Underground music for those who care to pay attention.
