Electric Shepherdess was born out of my frustration with nightlife options and a constant desire to dance. After a few years of adoration from afar, I partnered with my long-time friends, MASS EDMC, to spread our message far and wide. When I'm not tending to my flock, I'm writing, dancing, editing, managing, reading or curating. I believe in fancy hats and enjoy glitter, disco and lazers, often for days.

Weekly Forecast (4/17 to 4/23)

I am a Bostonian. I grew up about 14 miles outside of the city in Lexington - which as any true Masshole will tell you doesn't actually make me a Bostonian - and have spent the better part of my life here. I was born at Brigham & Woman's. I used to work on Boylston St, about a block from the second explosion. I've bought my coffee from the Starbucks next to Forum. I've made out in[...] Read more >>

Moonrise Festival 2013: Preview & Lineup

At the end of last year's Starscape Festival, Baltimore officials told Lonnie Fisher that the festival would be no more. Those who loved the 14-year strong event were heartbroken until whispers of an even bigger and better replacement event at a brand new location began to surface. That replacement? Moonrise Festival, held at Sun Park in Baltimore this year. Though the East Coast[...] Read more >>

Movement 2013: Preview & Lineup

Ah, techno. Frequently the catch-all misnomer that those not interested in electronic music use as a mild insult, techno has yet to really garner the same kind of attention as house  in the United States outside of certain circles. Yet, techno was born here in the US; for those who don't yet know, Detroit IS techno. Originating out of electro and funk in the late 70s and early 80s,[...] Read more >>

Electric Forest 2013: Phase II Lineup

There is something unique and spiritual about camping festivals that can't quite be explained. As much as I love maintaining a general sense of cleanliness and sleeping in a bed (as you do during festivals like Electric Zoo), there's sense of community and attendee bonding that happens when you're festing AND camping that I have yet to find replicated anywhere else. Camping is a[...] Read more >>

Weekly Forecast (3/27 to 4/2)

I'm back, a little more tan, a little more sick and definitely lusting for spring weather - I'm sure all those lucky ravers who were in Miami for WMC/Ultra Music Festival agree with me. Luckily for us, there's a whole bunch of spectacular events going on this week that will hopefully ease the post-Spring Break blues and serve as a distraction from the Northeast's reluctance to settle[...] Read more >>

Weekly Forecast (JUST KIDDING)

I was all set to do a Weekly Forecast yesterday, I swear. But I started packing, and I have this problem with packing. It's not that I'm bad at it, it's that I like to imagine all the possible scenarios I could find myself in and then pack accordingly. That's all fine and good, except that I'm going to be doing a bunch of different things (Volcano hiking! Treehouse dwelling! City[...] Read more >>

Weekly Forecast (11/13 to 11/19)

Well folks, it's officially winter - if you live in a hole, it snowed yesterday and today is colder than a middle school dance floor. Real talk: I severely dislike cold weather BUT instead of hibernating, I tend to face winter head on and feet first (you guessed it, I dance it out). If you're like me, you're in luck - there's plenty of perfect danceable options to aid your cold[...] Read more >>

Kill The Noise: Black Magic and Mystical Wonder Tour 2013

This spring, Kill the Noise is going on one heck of a tour and bringing Brillz and Style of Eye with him (with some appearances by 12th Planet too!).

His productions much like his[...] Read more >>

A-Trak: April Fools Club Tour Spring 2013

A-Trak, born Alain Macklovitch, is one of my personal favorite performers out there today. Not only does he produce fantastic tracks that make people dance, but he also has one heck of a stage presence emphasized by his turnable abilities. Bursting onto the scene when he was 15, his talent is undeniable - if you haven't heard of him, then you're not listening. He has produced some[...] Read more >>
