Both are headline performers in Paint: A Drag Cabaret and have hosted and performed at some of the Queen City's biggest drag shows including Glitter & Duct Tape, The Vermont Pride Festival, Queer Pop-Up Dance Party, and SASS. Emoji is one-half of local YouTube sensation, Britmoji Nation, while Nikki is the winner of 2014's Vermont Drag Idol.
Antara with Chris Cheney
Whether busy conjuring variations of rhythm folk poetry in song lyrics or exploring the percussive-like dynamics of her trademark guitar riffs, independent folk songstress Antara continues to establish herself as a 'new' folk artist that is expanding the forefront of women’s music and the independent folk movement. Having performed professionally for a dozen years in more than 500 venues throughout New England, Canada, The Midwest and The South, Antara’s unique fusion of rhythmic folk music and interactive coffee house performance capitalizes on a consistent sharing of the sociological perspective that shapes her life, love and work.

DJVU
