Sitting at third place in this year's Picked to Click poll, rap collective GRRRL PRTY have made a big impression on the local scene in a short time. Combining the energies of the poll's 2013 winner Lizzo, Sophia Eris, and La Manchita, GRRRL PRTY is the gritty counterpart to related group the Chalice. These are makers of take-no-shit spit-fire raps and raw trap-leaning beats. With their singles "Wegula" and "Night Watch" already grabbing listeners' eardrums, the trio casually announced that this show will see the release of their debut EP, TNGHT B4 XMAS. Past nights of their Icehouse residency stand among the best shows of the year, and the energy behind an album release is sure to find GRRRL PRTY in rare form.
