DJ Narky Stares

Lauren ‘Narky Stares’ Zwicky has been on the Denver scene since the beginning of 2010 when she helped start the Real Is a Feeling monthly at Meadowlark Bar. With the momentum from that initial foray into the sounds of the cities underground circuitry she broke off to form DAMN GURL, the monthly queer dance party that has been running strong for a year this April. DAMN GURL also has the distinction of being the dirtiest, sweatiest, sexiest dance party in the 303!

With the support of DAMN GURL and her longstanding resident-status as a member of the Analog Space Crew, Lauren has opened for the likes of Big Freedia, Das Racist, Brenmar and DJ Sprinkles. Her sets cut across genres of contemporary globe-trotting electronic dance music with a flair for the inspired, fierce, and unheard. When she is not trolling the interwebs for new music, you can find her walking her dogs, knitting, or working on her bounce moves.

Lauren will bring some of that DAMN GURL energy to the 12 Questions Anniversary party tomorrow night at Meadowlark in Denver. Join us and let this lady make you sweat.
