Get ready Denver for the night of your life! First, experience the collected music videos of the one and only Christeene Vale then, have your lives changed with earth shaking performance by the nation's most talented "drag terrorist"!
CHRISTEENE is a sexually infused sewer of live rap and vile shamelessness, capable of adapting amazingly well to all styles of music.
Attempts at gathering personal information on CHRISTEENE concerning age, origin, race, religion and even gender have proven fruitless, leaving the public to rely primarily on a highly stylized collection of music videos released through the singer’s collaborative efforts with award winning filmmaker and cinematographer, PJ Raval...who remains silent on the subject of their relationship.
It is noted that CHRISTEENE commands a stage presence of furious intensity accompanied by a strict regiment of hardcore dance and destructive choreography. The singer's impressive sound arsenal showcases a wide range of musical appreciation and mastery ranging from Electro to R&B, Hip Hop to Dub Step, with titles including 'Fix My Dick', 'Tears From My Pussy', 'African Mayonnaise’ and ‘Bustin’ Brown’. These songs, written by the artist, offer an intimate and fascinating glimpse into the private experiences of this talented nightmare.
The first full album from drag terrorist CHRISTEENE—WASTE UP, KNEEZ DOWN—is a stomach-turning, butt-thumping dance manifesto. This self-produced, 13-track chronicle of a vile and shameless life includes new and previously released singles that delve deep into the back rooms, busted dreams, and burnt offerings of this talented and visionary nightmare.
*Damn Gurl is Denver's only all ages queer dance party, run by Israel Butch Rose Oka and Lauren Zwicky aka DJ Narky Stares. It has been going on every month since April of 2011 and benefiting many queer projects and non-profits. For this month they will be raising money for IDA, a radical queer land project in Dowelltown, Tennessee. This month, at the CHRISTEENE after party during Denver Film Center's Cinema Q Festival the DJ's for the dance party will be DJ Narky Stares and Teena Pizza
