For their second show of 2019 on Wednesday, March 20 TheBasement Series showcased an incredible, diverse line-up of emerging female artists in honor of Women’s History Month. The room was filled with creatives not just in music but art too. Sponsored by Musicians Institute, Fender, Triller, Chick-fil-A and Higher Collective, from hip-hop to dancehall, r&b to Latin music – TheBasement gave it to you in all flavors.
Former Instagram executive turned buzzing rapper Shavone opened the show, quickly setting the tone that it was all about the women for the night. The beautiful Symphani Soto mesmerized the crowd into silence, you could hear a pin drop, with her buttery falsetto.
Def Jam’s newest rap star Nimic Revenue put on for her city Minneapolis so hard, the crowd didn’t know what to do with themselves afterwards. And, fiery Latin-pop girl group Bella Dose and dancehall sister duo Nick & Navi picked it right back up bringing the Caribbean dance vibes.
Fresh off the Bhad Bhabie tour, DJ Asia Shabazz held it down all night long on the 1’s and 2’s, and artist John Born created a custom Prince mural that is now on display at the Musicians Institute.
