Sounds Like Fun!

Once upon a time, deejaying was considered the sole province of menfolk. Recently, however, a crop of female turntablists have put their own spin on that perception and emerged as creative and progressive practitioners of the craft. FIRE (Female Ingenuity Redefining Energy), Friday, August 18, at Rock Island, aims to showcase some of the country's preeminent female DJs, including members of Chicago's Superjane collective: Heather, Colette, Dayhota, Electric Indigo and Lady D. Denver's Miss Audry (pictured) will represent the feminine sensibilities and turntable stylistics of the Front Range. Girls' night out has never sounded so good.
