RAVE SALON 


Rave Salon is an ongoing pedagogical intervention to the lack of electronic music in Charleston’s music scene, in both formal and DIY venues. In order to book more women, trans, and nonbinary folx, we need to first be equipped with the tools to perform as DJs and electronic musicians. These tools, which can be intimidatingly technical in nature, are more easily accessed and mastered by white, cisgender straight men - as are so many other tools. Rave Salon counters that asymmetry, and reprograms living rooms into friendly studio classrooms to serve collective goals of learning and sharing. Rave Salon is inspired by groups like Femme Synth Lab, Discwoman, TUF Seattle and POWRPLNT.
