I met Iixel at PYNK Wednesdays and am so glad I got to see her perform. The most important thing about being on stage is your presence. Iixel popped out with all her girls who held it down for her all night. When he song came on, you better believe they knew every word. After checking on her soundcloud, it’s hard to deny that honey girl has a banger.
PYNK Wednesdays at the VYNL is practically headquarters for leading women creatives in the tri-state area. The new event, hosted by FindYourIDNYC, highlights women & is open to all art forms , providing opportunities to showcase talents from poetry, singing and rapping to clothing design, modeling and entrepreneurship. This networking event is “the element” any driven and artistic woman wants and needs to be part of.
You cannot deny the vibes at the Word Vomit Poets open mic. Each Tuesday, artists pile into Moca Lounge in Harlem and fill up the seating, bar stools and open mic list with an incredible amount of respect for the mic and each other. The hosts keep a tight check on timing, ensuring that the show moves along and the crowd stays entertained. For the few patrons in the crowd who aren’t artists, there are participation games interspersed throughout the evening.
