Having listened to electronic music since the mid nineties, the discovery of a culture centered around this genre felt like coming home. Phibonacci began primarily as a visual artist. For many years, music and dance drove her visual art practice as she evolved from live painting at raves from 2002-2004 to VJing from 2004-2006. Under the moniker, "VJ Phi", she collaborated with members of the Glitchcrew and also performed at various local raves. Among some of her gigs were the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC, the Burning Man festival, and Ultra Music Festival/WMC. VJ Phi was also one of two resident VJs at the Phoenix Landing for Wednesday night techno sessions in 2005.While Phi enjoyed VJing, she always had a desire to be behind the decks as part of the kinesthetic experience of selecting music and moving the dance floor. She wanted to have a hand in the music that painted images in her mind. As such, Phibonacci was born out of the visual styling of VJ Phi. Phibonacci learned how to DJ by feeling the patterns of the music through dance and by observing and listening to favorite local DJs. She purchased her first set of turntables in 2006 and began playing out regularly in 2012. Throughout her career as a DJ, she has played internationally and locally for Atari Safari, Mutiny, Live Free and Dance, Diehard on Decks, Rise, WZBC Green, WBRS, Infrasuoni, 30 Gedanken zum Tod, Vinyl Siding, Firefly Precom, Burning Man Decom, Kick It Recordings, 4orce Productions, and Beatdown Productions. Phibonacci became a resident DJ with Beatdown Productions in 2013 and Kick It Recordings (Subterra) in 2017.https://soundcloud.com/phibonacci1618http://www.thephibonaccisequence.com/.:dj841:.dj841 currently brings a crowd-pleasing, disco house experience and an infectious energy that will have you too busy dancing to look at your phone.Charlie Ronin [dj841] started DJ'ing chillout rooms with psydub and worldtronica beats swiped up from the Netherlands and the western US 13 years ago. After an experiment DJ'ing electrohouse with Ableton Live, and seeing the crowd eat it up, she took a course with Jeff Mission to get familiar with more traditional DJ methods, picked up new gear, and never looked back.https://www.facebook.com/thatbounce/http://www.dj841.com/.:Anya:.Anya is an Russian-born DJette now living in Boston.

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet @The Rockwell / BOS
Your favorite star-crossed lovers are back for one night at The Rockwell in celebration of Shakespeare's birthday! Shit-faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 100,000 eager theatre goers across the UK + US. Shit-faced Shakespeare landed Stateside in April of 2015.  With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-Faced Shakespeare seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist - reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.
