    Featuring dancing and libations, set amidst ‘FORAGED‘ an exhibition by collaborators Annie Hejny & Annabella Sardelis. Dress to impress and step into a custom photo booth back drop created by Hi Hi Creative.



    SYM1, formerly known as Symone Smash It, is currently blowing up. Claimed to be the ‘EDM pop maven’ of the Twin cites, SYM1 takes pride in reigniting the twin cities pop scene. Outsiders looking for a good time will find SYM1 a meteoric pop dream machine that bops hard.

    BAARD is a Producer/DJ from Saint Paul. Music to him is the universal language that should be used as a tool to bring people together. As a Selector, his goal is to mix music seamlessly and thoughtfully to create an environment for those who wish to dance, connect or to simply escape.

    Curandero The music, a fusion of pre-Columbian Indigenous instruments, house, and dance hall, is so fresh it doesn’t have a name yet. Reminiscent of the time before Afro-Beat had a name, Curandero’s music brings together traditional indigenous instrumentation and rhythms of Mesoamerica (Mexico) with electronic DJ elements and production. It’s a new sound that the next generation of urban indigenous latinx chican@people are hungry for–contemporary, danceable, and rooted in cultural identity. Produced, mixed, and mastered by Rico Simon Mendez a.k.a. DJ Don Cuco, Curandero is a mash-up of his dj stylings (which draw crowds of the most innovative underground hipsters in the city) plus Gustavo Lira and Xilam Balam on flutes, and Felipe Cuauhtli on percussion. The latter two are known for their hip-hop duo Los Nativos.

    Suzanne Casler is a fine arts enthusiast with a degree to accompany her passion, and experience in Interior Design to round out her skill set. As a dreamer and a doer, you won’t find Suzanne sitting still…ever. She dives into a project with all she’s got, taking your napkin sketches or outlandish ideas into real life palettes of color, texture and form. Compelled to push the boundaries, HI HI is always experimenting with new materials, and re-imagining uses for unconventional ones. With a consistent sense of wonder, and a strong ability to execute, she’ll move your concept into a creation.
