Last night, we launched LICK! Our new female artists series, saluting the flyest ladies in the arts. To celebrate the occasion, we brought Joi of Outkast and Dungeon Family fame to perform one the most inspiring performances we’ve had at 205Club.
She ripped through 8 or 9 songs, shedding a tear during a tribute to her lost friend, Outkast touring backup vocalist Peaches. The set backed by Nikki Glaspie (drummer for Beyonce, Martin Luther & More), was complete with Joi annihilating notes with that Southern choir girl in her.
Ebony Wildcat opened the night dropping funk, soul & reggae records before the early performance by Valencia Robinson, an unknown vocalist we discovered over the weekend from Nashville.
Stay tuned for the next LICK, August 27th at 205Club
Thanks to the artists; Ashes57, Joi, The Agytators, Valencia Robinson, Jasmine Solano, DJ CAT NYC, Wildcat Ebony Brown
