Jazz & Funk BLENDING with Punk: DJ set with Geexella


As one of Jacksonville’s most talented, clever and jazz-influenced up-and-coming rappers, geeXella—pronounced jee (hard e) ella—always tries to be authentic and true to herself, writing only about what she knows and feels. As an outspoken member of the LGBTQIA community, she is “queering the mic” as noted writer Dr. Nikki Lane would say, and within that flipped heteronormative structure, working against expectations of gendered identity, all with solid hooks and good beats. Swing through and listen as this “unclassifiable, rocket-fueled, complex musician” (we said it, we stand by it) spins her favorite music.

7-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1, Coniferous Café, 42 W. Monroe St., Downtown, 999-8493.
