Launched in 2016, girlFx ("girlfriend") is a collective of women and non-binary individuals who stand for ownership and representation in the nightlife community. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, but with members located throughout Phildelphia, NYC and the east coast, we are a mix of DJs, musicians, artists, sound engineers, curators and entrepreneurs. I am the co-founder of girlFx with fellow organizers Allison Cosby, Eileen Angulo, and Isabella Parajole.
We currently host 3 residencies in Pittsburgh, PA.
Hot Mass - after-hours focused on showcasing world-renowned talent spinning house, techno, and progressive club sounds. Guests have included Jane Fitz, Dr Rubinstein, DJ Haram, Sophia Saze, Noncompliant aka DJ Shiva, and DJ Heather.
Ace Hotel’s “In The Weeds” - a monthly series to showcase and help grow local DJs, musicians, and small businesses.
“Tea Time” at Dobra Tea House - a sober after-hours during the cold months that offers an assortment of teas and electronic beats by local and visiting musicians.
Additionally, we team up with other organizations to present fundraisers, workshops, and special events that underscore knowledge exchange, equity, visibility and allyship across various industries.
Many of our members DJ, perform, and speak around the world: guest spots have included Unter (NYC), OHM (Berlin), The Future of What Podcast / Kill Rock Stars (Portland). For bookings/artist list and event inquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
