Wbl Halloween: 8ulentina, Maarquii, Patricia Hall, Ii Trill says
A Women's Beat League Halloween event featuring:

8ULENTINA is a DJ, producer, interdisciplinary artist and curator based in Oakland, California. 8ULENTINA is the co-founder of CLUB CHAI, a dance party and curatorial project in Oakland, California invested in diasporic narratives and the hybridization of non western sounds with club music. 8ULENTINA’s work focuses on creating diasporic fantasy space through sound, sculpture, garments and collaboration.

Maarquii (marquise dickerson) was born in Eldorado Arkansas, he moved to Tillamook Oregon at 13. There he acquired a deep interest in the arts; music and dance specifically. He trained in ballet, jazz, and street styles such as vogue, house and waacking. Highly influenced by ball culture and the underground queer club scene, his art often reflects those influences. Musically, he is inspired by greats like Erykah Badu, Myyki Blanco, Missy Elliott, and Zebra Katz to name a few. In the last year alone he has infiltrated the Portland scene; cultivating his craft and performing at parties such as "Club Kai Kai," "Boyuerism" and "Yes Please.” He is also a dancer for local RnB band Chanti Darling, who was recently voted Portland's best new band by Willamette Week. It was through performing at the local event "Sad Day" (put on by Patrick Buckmaster) that he was introduced to producers/artists Derek Stilwell and SaintMichaelLorenzo of JVNITOR and BRUXA, and thus "HEAVY PETTY" was born.

Ex-Soft Metals superstar Patricia Hall has ventured out on her own with an arsenal of boxes, creating a diverse array of synthesizer music. Her sound lies somewhere between dance music, austere synthetic pop, and experimental electronic composition.

Hailing from North Carolina but currently residing in Portland, OR, IITRILL has been active in the Portland club scene since 2011. She has held down monthly spots at TWERK, Slo' Jams, Titty Pop, as well as guesting at Gaycation, Night Crush (SEA), Bridge Club, and Chemtrail to name a few.
