Ladies of LCD Soundsystem
Ladies of LCD Soundsystem
Ladies of LCD Soundsystem​ is a DJ tour with Nancy Whang and Gavin Rayna Russom. The tour is a celebration of
their work as solo artists, and an exploration of their music beyond their work with LCD Soundsystem as keyboard
player/vocalist and synthesist respectively.

As the two women in LCD Soundsystem, Nancy and Rayna have worked with and contributed to the design of
complex electronic rigs, in addition to building their portfolio outside of the band with a number of projects in diverse
media, and as solo DJs who have played internationally.
Nancy and Rayna have been dedicated to various forms of activism over their extensive creative careers, and
continue to provide a platform and visibility to marginalized voices with each stop of the tour featuring local women
and non-binary artists as support. Ladies of LCD Soundsystem will also raise money for RAINN (Rape, Abuse &
Incest National Network) via Plus 1 throughout the tour.
Linqua Franqa
Linqua Franqa
LINQUA FRANQA is the hip hop project of Athens, Georgia-based linguist-turned-legislator Mariah Parker, whose passion for social justice and scientific fixation with hip hop language are obvious in the intricate, self-aware rhymes she interweaves with boom bap beats. Parker holds a Master's degree in Linguistics from the University of Georgia, where she now pursues a PhD in Language and Literacy Education. Her lyrics, garnished with haunting neo-soul hooks, tell unflinching tales of chemically-induced heartbreak, reproductive justice, racial politics and feminist swagger, and longtime hip hop heads will hear echoes of nineties New York underground in both her playful vocal delivery and piano-centric, classic R&B-inspired compositions. In the wake of a critically acclaimed first album and narrowly-clinched election to the Athens city council earlier this year, Parker has garnered the attention of CNN, The New York Times, Teen Vogue, National Public Radio, Al Jazeera, Afropunk, Blavity, The Hill, The Root, Impose, Performer Magazine and others for her outspoken commitments to racial and economic justice and her electrifying live performances, which call listeners to self-reflection and critical action in their lives and their communities.
