Hello friends! Summer solstice approacheth! That’s right – the longest day of the year’s coming fast and what better way to praise that delicious extra daylight than hanging with your Underground Nomads family? Join us, this coming Tuesday, June 20th, at our home in SOMA – F8!

Lady Ra will be our musical guide this week. She’ll be sure to give you the right soundtrack to put you in the mood for your Solstice celebrations!

LadyRa

Lady Ra emerged in 1996 via CFRU 93.3 fm in Guelph, Ontario, Canada . Freshly trained on antiquated community radio equipment and given free reign of the extensive music library, each show she was able to program was a revelation. Ethnic flavours quickly emerged as her primary passion. Her flair for selecting wicked tracks and mixing them with ambient global sounds brought her many requests for djing local parties.

After a year in Asia absorbing the local flavours, from Indonesian Dangdut, Sri Lankan Baila, Punjabi Bhangra, and everything in between, she relocated to Vancouver on Canada’s West Coast. She is inspired to continue her travels both overland and underground, seeking out and weaving old and new world sounds into rich musical tapestries hailing from the Four Corners of Earth.

And we’ve got a fantastic line-up of dancers who will be sharing their own inner sunshine with us! On the bill, we’re excited to have Lindsay Kendall, Salimpour School, Amy Szu, and a special treat – Rose Harden’s Performance Workshop Showcase!

So come on out to 1192 Folsom and party with us! We’ll keep the light on for ya (courtesy of Mother Nature, of course! heh heh).
