CAKE 2017: Night Two full of genre-bending, gender-ascending music for your eyes and ears. 

The second night of this year's CAKE line-up brings a serious double-header with JD Samson and Christeene

JD Samson is best known as leader of the band MEN and for being one-third of the electronic-feminist-punk band and performance project, Le Tigre. For more than a decade JD's career as a singer, producer and DJ has landed her at the intersection of the music, art, activism, and fashion. 

During that time she has toured the world, produced songs for Grammy award winning artists, written for publications such as Huffington Post, Talkhouse, and Creative Review and engaged in direct support with a wide-range of progressive social and political causes.

CHRISTEENE is a sexually infused sewer of unclassifiable musical stylings and vile shamelessness; a human pissoir of raw unabashed sexuality; a gender-blending, booty-pounding, perversion of punk fully equipped with an arsenal of ferocious music intertwined with raw moments of strained intimacy and fiery stank. 

Reports from live shows describe CHRISTEENE appearing alongside two sexually distinct ‘Backup Boyz’ (T Gravel and C Baby), macabre scenes involving butt plugs tied to bouquets of balloons being released from CHRISTEENE’s arse, intimate and bizarre confessionals, wardrobes styled from the forgotten scraps of society, and heated communication on the state of the world as we know it.

CHRISTEENE is also accompanied by a highly stylized collection of music videos released through the performer's longtime collaborative efforts with award winning filmmaker and cinematographer, PJ Raval. The duo's music videos have been showcased in the film festivals: South by Southwest, NYC Rooftop Films, Paris Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, CFMDC's Queer City Cinema's Tour Wide Open Wide, Homo-a-go-go, Prince George Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, Regina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the International Short Film Festival/ Detmold, and the Denver Film Festival, to name a few.

It should be noted that CHRISTEENE’s music, media and live shows have cast an unprecedented net over a demographic including married men, dykes, queers, single women, bears, faeries, academics, motor hogs, pastors, and people of the medical profession; clearly signifying a rapidly growing pandemic on popular culture as we know it. 

Book a room to stay and dance all weekend with code CAKE for a sweet deal.
