THUMP's Sunsets series is back. Last week, Fool's Gold's Nick Hook and Nadus christened our inaugural set. For our second stint this week, we're welcoming New York's Papi Juice—a collective and monthly party founded on providing a safe place for queer and trans people of color.
On July 21, we kick off with a Facebook Live interview at 6:30PM with Papi Juice co-founders Oscar Nñ, DJ Adam, photographer Cristobal, and illustrator Mohammed. (Send us your questions in the comments section!) From 7-8:30PM, we'll live-stream performances from Papi Juice co-founders Oscar Nñ and DJ Adam, as well as special guests DJ Bebe, D0UZE, and Micah Domingo. Tune in to Sunset on THUMP's Facebook page or YouTube channel; all sets will be archived on our Mixcloud. You can listen to this week's archive below.
In Papi Juice's signature, playful rhetoric, the crew told THUMP over email:
"SUP HOMIES! WE'RE MAD EXCITED TO GET ~BREEZY~ WIT YALL LIVE FROM VICE HQ'S ROOFTOP THIS THURSDAY! AS PART OF THUMP'S NEW SERIES 'SUNSETS,' WE'LL BE DOING CUTE LIL B2B SETS WITH OUR SPECIAL GUESTS FROM OUR UPCOMING DAY RAGE 'PAPI BREEZE': DJ BEBE, D0UZE, AND MICAH! CAN YOU EVEN HANDLE THE ROMANCE, THE VIEWS, THE COLOR STORIES, AND THE SOUNDS? IT'S GONNA BE HOTTER THAN UR FAVE TELENOVELA KISS AT SUNSET! LOVE & LIGHT XOXO, PAPIJUICE."
Papi Juice will also be celebrating their three-year anniversary at Project Parlor in Brooklyn on Saturday, June 23 from 3-9PM, and it's free! Stay tuned for weekly announcements of future Sunsets performers.
