Vancouver’s Queen of Sass — Crystal Precious— is coming to Winnipeg!
Crystal Precious is part riot grrl, part burlesque dancer and part rapper. She is the world’s first burlesque/hip hop MC, mixing ghetto-fabulous glamour with fresh quips, razor-sharp rhymes, locally grown beats and a touch of tongue-in-cheek tease. She calls it Striphop. You’ll call it lots of things.
Watch Crystal’s new music video for “Apple Pie” below and see what I mean…
* Special guest performance by Winnipeg’s own burlesque sweetheart, Miss La Muse!
* Hosted by drag sensation, Tyra Boinks!
* Music and dance party with the duo that brought you “I Wanna Dance with Somebody!” and “Let’s Have a Kiki!”, Mama Cutsworth and DJ J. Jackson!

I play a wide range of music in my DJ sets (and in my kitchen when I’m cooking, too), but soul music is one of my very first loves. The raw, deep emotion of a good soul song just makes me feel better. Which is why it’s so damn exciting to know that Winnipeg gets [...]
A year ago, my pal DJ J. Jackson and I threw a very sweaty, joy-filled party called “I Wanna Dance with Somebody!” It was one of my 2012 highlights. We’re going to have an anniversary of the all-Diva dance party and you are invited! House of Gold Diamonds presents: I Wanna Dance with Somebody Again! [...]
I started a DJ School just over a year ago. It’s not made of bricks and mortar, but it does have students. Last year, I had ten women in the first-ever class and the results were incredibly rewarding. We had a recital and they were brave enough to perform their brand new skills in front [...]
You know about this, right? (I’d recommend making this full screen and having a dance party. Immediately.) Well, this Saturday we get our gossip on and we’re having a kiki! With my pal DJ J. Jackson (from “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” fame) and special guest in from Toronto, Mizz Brown (known for her parties [...]

Sometimes I just want to throw a party — something that sounds like a terrific night out, you know? For example, say I want to listen to old school hip hop and eat Thai food until 4 in the morning… then I just do it. Oh wait, let’s make that happen: RIGHT & HYPE! [...]
I’d like to invite you down to a party that’s going to be souful. And sweaty. And fun. It’ll be me and the Nobel Thiefs (yup, kinda like the Maple Leafs — make up your own plurals!) all night at the Cheer in Osborne Village. Let’s make back-to-school just as fun as when school [...]
