i haven’t told a ton of you abt this, but this week marks the beginning of my new journey pursuing my PhD in musicology at @ucla. i was recently accepted to this small prestigious program on a generous fellowship after spending months feverishly writing entrance essays last year in tour vans across the US and europe. while in this new program, in addition to coursework and teaching, i will continue recording my strange songs at home and at ucla’s beautiful state of the art recording studio, and further developing my critical writings on music and technology — the ways in which our engagement w new technologies affects music consumption, music creation, and the business of music. in addition to this, and very importantly, this program will allow me the fiscal opportunity to explore unknown and purely expressive parts of my musical being, without the anxieties of commercial function. it’s truly a beautiful thing to know that if you nurture your talent and your intellect, no matter what your background, anything, namely survival and creative fulfillment, is possible. i will still continue performing as nite jewel here and there, and occasionally posting tour dates and new projects on IG, but in general taking some time off and working on these thrilling and herein uncharted recordings and writings. i’m diving deep into my fantasy world. love ya and see ya soon! ♥️

over the past year, many of us in the music/arts community in LA and beyond have lost friends and loved ones to situations beyond our control. these days are overwhelming; depression and anxiety are widespread, and so it’s important that we remember to take a moment to appreciate one another.
@juliaholter @nedelle_torrisi and i have put together a show this tuesday night, aug 21, at @zebulonla to honor our late friend, filmmaker Travis Peterson, as well as to provide a place for togetherness, immersive listening, as well as a safe space for anyone who is grieving.

the three of us are presenting various songs together w @coreyvogeln, @genevaxjacuzzi and @ballbuyer will be DJing, and @jjstratford is providing visuals.

the show is donation only, and all money will go to @didi_hirsch a crucial organization in LA that provides quality mental health and substance abuse services in communities where stigma or poverty limits access. we will also be selling the 7” record we made for Travis, with proceeds of sales also going to Didi Hirsch.
the show is already nearly at capacity so show up early to reserve a spot. starts at 9p. hope to see you there.

this event is gonna be very special 💕 performing new n old songs w @computer_granny on live visuals and my new fav artist @kablito as support
