Reminiscing on last year's UMS? Peek back at our coverage of 2016:
This Saturday, October 8th, CU’s Verge Campus chapter will hold its first “Artist on the Verge” event. Hosted by the awesome peeps over at Cosmic Collective, the night will feature music by four local female artists. Povi will headline the evening after Yasi, jilly.FM, and SIXXXD take the stage.
Povi, who recently released a visual arts video for her remix of Lil Yachty’s “Minnesota”, is an electronic soul and hip-hop artist based in Denver. Just last week, she shared a stage with NAO and RumTum at The Bluebird that we caught live, and her set was wicked. Check out our photos by Annie Kane from that event:
Yasi, another Denverette, will be bringing her singer/songwriter vibes to the room with music that she says, “I make to better understand the world.” Tight. Next is jilly.FM, who joined the Colorado scene in 2010 and has been on the come-up in the future R&B dance realm. Just this year, she was nominated for a Westword Music Award in the “Best DJ/Producer” category. Spins from her will be sweet, and SIXXXD will be poppin’ as well. Known as a member of the ZOIDcrew, SIXXXD works with hip-hop, world, trapsoul, and jazz music in her bumpin’ creations.
Overall, it’s going to be one awesome night of all local; all ladies. Get your tickets here- they’re only $8 and it’s totally gonna be worth the dough. The show starts at 9PM. Go dance!
