This 18+ show will prove to be a high energy night of live music spanning indie rock from Indy’s own Public Universal Friend’s to the pop music vibes of an Indy Pride favorite i.V. King. To add to this winter queer celebration, DJ B.A.E will bring the best tracks for Queer Dance Party, which will keep you dancing late into the night. Join us for this stellar line up of live music, a high energy dance party, and all the queer joy to celebrate Indy Pride’s first annual Frost series!
Public Universal Friend (PUF) is an Indianapolis-based rock band led by trans frontman Jody Galadriel Friend, combining the sounds of Appalachian folk and post-punk, with threads of 90’s indie rock and stoner doom, and have become a central fixture in the Indianapolis queer music scene.
I.V KING is a perfect blend of A-list pop and modern storytelling. She was certainly not crowned with struggle. Her lyrics paint pictures of both the beauty and pain of growing up with one foot in the church and the other in the LGBTQ+ community. King’s sound blends Olivia Rodrigo pop accessibility with visceral lyricism and storytelling you might expect on a Brandi Carlile album. As a queer artist, inspiration for many of King’s songs is to increase LGBTQ+ visibility and storytelling in the pop culture and music space.
DJ B.A.E – Coming from the vibrant south side of Chicago DJ B.A.E (they/she), has always embraced a diverse range of music that reflects her cultural roots. Growing up she immersed herself in the rhythms of beats, the rawness of East Coast productions and the soulful sounds of Chicago house music. During her time in Boston art became a source of inspiration for her while music set her passion ablaze. With over five years of experience as a DJ she has become a virtuoso in blending genres performing at art shows and festivals with an open-minded approach. DJ B.A.E.s skills on turntables have been refined through training at Deckademics, where she is mastering the art of scratching. As an Indianapolis resident and holder of a Computer Engineering degree she is committed to learning and constantly refining her craft.
