Populating Winnipeg with Female DJs

I used to feel pretty lonely, when it came to DJing. There have never been all that many women who took on DJing for any extended period of time around here, or anywhere. There are certainly some excellent women spinning (like DJ Shortee, Mama Miche, DJ Tereza) but it’s still pretty uncommon. Which is why [...]

Stompin’ at the Savoy!

We’re bringing another edition of our Barrelhouse parties — jams where we spin songs from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. You’ll hear Jump Blues, Hot Jazz, Swing, nitty gritty Rhythm and Blues. The next one is a tribute to that great Harlem nightspot of yore, The Savoy. Mama Cutsworth and DJ Dryhump present: STOMPIN’ AT [...]

I hit the road in a few days for Germany, France and Norway. If you have any friends in those parts, send them my way! Or if you know of any primo food, cocktail or coffee spots, let me know. And Winnipeg, I’ll be back soon for more dance parties. Thanks to everyone who came [...]

We’ll be playing all of our favourite tunes from divas through the ages, from Aretha and Tina, to Missy and Lauryn, to Robyn and Janelle. Plus, we have a [...]

The Winnipeg Fringe Festival!

Okay. I’ve mentioned this project called SPEECHLESS before. Last month I went to South America for three and a half weeks to perform with Daniel Orrantia and Felipe Ortiz (both from Bogotá’s La Gata Cirko and Picnic Impro) in our collaboration called SPEECHLESS. Daniel and Felipe are incredible, expressive performers who combine physical theatre, long-form [...]

Come watch an opening set by Winnipeg’s The Catamounts, followed by Lady performing really great [...]

I create an improvised soundtrack on my turntables, while the two very talented improvisers and circus performers — Felipe Ortiz and Daniel [...]
