Madison's Queer Pressure is a DIY collective that prides itself on hosting and creating dance, art, and music by and for queer-identifying people. The collective moves into Olbrich Gardens' pleasantly humid indoor Bolz Conservatory for a night of cocktails and music from QP leaders and mainstays DJ Boyfrrriend and DJ Sarah Akawa. DJ Boyfrrriend's work is bombastic and often full of samples from popular artists alongside thumping house beats, as showcased in her expansive mix "Dark Start From Loose Cannons." Akawa's mixes are full of chill, minimalistic samples; in recent production work under the Saint Saunter moniker, Akawa spans from moments of intense panic to down-tempo, head-bobbing vibes. The venue will be wheelchair-accessible and have gender-neutral bathrooms. —John McCracken
