“Who that?/Who that?/Who that?/Princess Nokia, Baby Phat/I be where the ladies at/Who know how to shake it fast/We gon' spit that brazy track/You know that I'll take it back/I'm spitting the illest mack/Yeah, hoe!” Pull up your big girl britches, bitches, because the queen is back in town. Princess Nokia is performing at Meow Wolf's One Year Anniversary Party this Saturday, March 18. If you somehow don't know who Princess Nokia is, 1) You need to get it together, and 2) She's an incredible hybrid alternative hip-hop, pop and R&B bruja musician flowing to trip-hop beats pulling from feminist, Native and black experiences creating (what I like to call a “feminist-me-up” genre) a highly entertaining and real narrative of a womanly, queer experience. Doors to the House of Eternal Return open at 8pm. Pre-sale tickets are $15 and door tickets are $18. (Megan Reneau)

Princess Nokia is a musical collective lead by twenty-two year old Destiny Nicole Ortiz. (formerly known as Wavy Spice) Destiny is an up and coming, multifaceted, DIY artist from the New York City underground. Her unique musical style blends tribal beats, with trip hop and R&B – creating an exciting and unprecedented crossover of sounds. Her first independent album, Metallic Butterfly released in May of 2014 combines a post-Internet-era view on cyber-feminism, a metaphysical awareness of nature, sex and drugs; often stepping into a dystopian, or indigenous landscape. Her songs are both hypnotic and hyper reality driven. Vice Magazine hailed the album as being, “…one of the most exciting and ambitious [albums] to come out of the NYC underground in a long time…” Aside from her music, Destiny also hosts a weekly web-radio show that she DJs as part of her feminist art collective, Smart Girls Club, helping to open up dialogue and support for young women of all ethnicities in music and the arts.
