Yesterday marked the start of the Winter Music Conference, one of the largest networking events in the dance music industry. The city is full of artists, DJs, industry execs, and puh-lenty of wannabes all either looking for a shot in the industry or a shot of tequila. If you need a break from the schmoozefest, roll to Power Studios for the Winter Soulstice, a soul music experience celebrating brown-sugar soul, poetry, and music. The vibe is chill and the spot is just right for getting away from the screaming DJs and glow sticks that have taken over the city.
The event starts at 7:00 p.m. with the monthly erotic poetry night that has tongues wagging, Cunnilinguistics. Thats followed by a pre-Winter Music conference live jam session with special invited guests Jaguar Wright, Mishall Moore, Basic Vocab and local soulsters performing with house band Jody Hill and Deep Fried Funk. The party grooves until 3:00 a.m. Tickets are on sale for $20 in advance and can be purchased Wednesdays at Power Studios or online at www.partyspree.com.
Wed., March 21, 7 p.m.-3 a.m.
