Jenna Riot's is a fierce force of nature who makes your electro-pop dreams happen. Her style is innovative & unique.Not only does she work hard fixin' up beats & heartthrob bruises, she also raps and sings with KATASTROPHE in thier up and coming music project, Ice Cream Socialites.
"Hi. I'm a fancy lady dj from San Francisco, CA.
I started a big rad queer party, Hot Pants, in January 2002. It ran for 7 years and was super fun. Some other parties I've started with other people or by myself are: White Diamonds, House Partee, Nu Bay Rave, and Babe Cave. I've played at clubs all over the country from LA to NY to TX to FL, gay and straight, fancy and grimy."
