Introducing the first season of #bbatx's DJ residency.

Free and open to the public at Native Hostels, our DJ and artist residency will run every First Thursday from March 1 through September 6, 2018. From 9 PM to midnight, we'll feature a new roster of women-identifying and nonbinary DJs and visual artists. Expect curated sounds, pro-babe vibes and ALL. THE. DANCING. Surprises to come.


SESSION V: July 5, 2018

Sounds - DJ Ella Ella
DJ Ella Ella is an emerging mixed genre DJ in Austin, Texas.

Visuals - Cindy Popp
"As Cindy Popp, I use found objects, clothing and makeup to transform myself into anyone I want and my empty home into an audience. Finding examples of women—particularly women of color—using makeup and fashion to take control of their own image in a way that isn’t meant to be attractive to men can be very hard to find and I want to fill that void. I’m interested in an exaggerated version of femininity, with notes of pop culture and drag. My influences are fashion editorials, makeup artists on Instagram, B movies, clowns, and comedy. I always want my photos to be imperfect, indulgent, and a little gross." Cindy Popp will also exhibit work through #bbatx's Meet Her Hands series on August 9.
