VAMOS - The Event Guide


DARQNESS: A new dance party for QT's of darqer shades. Come and dance with fellow QTPOC in a safer space to the hottest hiphop, r&b, house, dancehall, and latin, provided by Reverend Dollars. 21+/$5 The Entertainment: Reverend Dollars is a Seattle-based DJ/producer whose most recent output, Arson EP, was praised by The Stranger as "a cauldron of peak-time, fast-twitch bass music, blazing with party-igniting exhortations, airhorns, A+ funk samples, and heavy-weight-champ percussion." The Space: MAXIM is owned and operated by four queer women of color: "We believe Maxim's belong to the community, and we cater to the needs of the community, because we understand that there is no unity without a community. Maxim's is a safe, loving space to socialize, while feeling the positive vibe and healing powers from music and laughter." Accountability statement: DARQNESS is intended as a safer space for queer and trans people of color, organized by QTPOC, as an alternative to queer spaces where our needs, safety, and comfort are not prioritized. Allies and fellow partygoers are asked to aknowledge and respect the QTPOC-centric nature of the space. Please be respectful of fellow partygoers' boundaries or you will be asked to leave. Transportation: On Rainier, near the corner of Rainier and Orcas. Accessible by 7 and 9 busses. Accessibility info: The main floor of Maxim's is wheelchair accessible. The two main bathrooms are up a flight of stairs, but there is a staff bathroom on the ground floor which is available for use by partygoers who cannot climb stairs. All bathrooms will be gender-neutral for this event. Flash photography will be in use for this event. Partygoers are asked to reduce their use of scented products for this event.

The Hideout

We thought it would be a good idea to buy a ton of coconuts, chop the tops off, and fill them with rum and ice. We thought it would be a good idea to bring in a few guest bartenders, say Amanda Reed and Jana Howard, and invest in a small arsenal of paper umbrellas, plastic monkeys and colorful straws. Join us on Thursday, August 21st for a tropical evening of Tiki magic and good times. Grass skirts optional.

Northwest Film Forum

On Saturday, August 9, 2014, Raymond Wilford was maced by a Westlake Center security guard while walking to the mall. The guard had been called in to address a shirtless white man who was harassing a group of pro-Palestine demonstrators. Photographer Alex Garland captured the event with his camera and shared his photos and video online. A few days later, the story was picked up by local media before getting the attention of national press. Garland's video is a new entry in the canon of citizen reporting on racial violence ignored or skewed by mainstream media. It arrives alongside live streams from Ferguson, Missouri, and resonates with the on the ground struggles in Gaza that the demonstrators at Westlake were supporting when the security guard maced Wilford. Join us for a community discussion about what happened at Westlake, and what we can do as a community beyond recognizing events like these as unjust. Led by Charles Mudede, Christa Bell, Ijeoma Oluo, Pramila Jayapal and moderated by Reverend Harriet G. Walden. Alex Garland will be present to speak about his experience documenting the event.

The Crocodile

The Crocodile & ReignCity Present: Blackalicious + Black Stax + Justis + DJ Seabefore 8:00PM | All Ages | $18 Adv. Tickets & Info: It's one thing to make enduring records, another still to work with luminaries in multiple fields. Another thing still to treat the rhyme not only as a piece of poetry, but to play with the aesthetics of language in ways that represent the voice as a unique instrument in and of itself. Blackalicious do all of these things, and as evidenced by the reissue of 1993's Melodica, they have been doing these things for years. Originally released exclusively on cassette, Melodica is being reissued digitally for the first time. It's a vital document of the group's progression towards their eventual position as lords of the West Coast Underground, Gift of Gab twisting his words with aplomb, his lyrics more carefree than his later work. Chief Xcel's beats, meanwhile, tread the same funky, lighthearted waters as many of his left-field contemporaries, but everything on Melodica is coated in a murky scuzz that, somewhat conversely to logic, could place the EP alongside much of today's weird, lo-fi hip-hop. As an added treat, Melodica contains "Changes," an unreleased cut produced in part by one DJ Shadow, who joins forces withBlackalicious producer Chief Xcel to offer dusty drum loops and subtle, textured samples that would offer a glimpse into much of Shadow's later work. In an era where hip-hop devolves into half-baked facsimile with alarming regularity, Melodica serves as a reminder that the true school will always triumph over the bullshit.
