Lady Ryan voted Best of the East Bay 2016

EastBayXpress' Writers Picks their Best of the East Bay 2016: Nightlife & Entertainment winners.

Lady Ryan is a busy woman. She’s a fixture in the queer party scenes in Oakland and San Francisco; a mainstay (and one of the few female DJs) in Oakland’s underground hip-hop scene; and is also involved in other events that celebrate the African Diaspora. Her previous recurring party, Tongue at Senegalese restaurant Bissap Baobab, featured live drummers and eclectic selections of music from all over the world, and she held it down on Monday nights at the dance party and open-mic series at Somar, Monday Night Cap, which was an incubator for local hip-hop talent earlier this year. These days, Lady Ryan is heating up the summer at The New Parish with her seasonal day party series, Soulovely, which she puts on with DJ Emancipacion and rapper-host Aima the Dreamer. The event, which takes place every second Sunday of the month, brings feel-good vibes to The New Parish’s patio and draws out a big, diverse crowd of queer and straight folks alike. — N.V.
