Lisztomania



A video montage of me doing hoodrat things with my hoodrat friends to the tune of Lisztomania.

Eargasm Provided By...



This interview is an installment of the series, "Eargasm Provided By..." The interviewer and curator of the series is my beloved Reneeka Rae so I'm smiling super hard through this whole thing and when i do that you can barely understand what I'm saying or see my eyes. The video features an original song and footage from The Release, a bi-weekly night of live entertainment at Cloud IX on Peter St. Enjoy.

Time Flies



Kyle Drew magically both directed this video and played the guitar. It took us several takes [hilarious], but this is a cover of the Lykke Li song "Time Flies". We had a good time putting this together.

Come Over



Every first and third Tuesday a bunch of singers have a really great time at Cloud IX lounge on Peters Street. Here I'm performing Aaliyah's Come Over with Brandon Thomas on guitar and Henry Conway III on drums. I always have a good time there. If you're in Atlanta you should come out.

Mardi Gras Miracles



I can't believe i didn't share this on my blog immediately! My roommates and I shut that city down for Mardi Gras. It was one of the best experiences of my life. My roommates and I rented a car, found some strangers on couchsurfing.org, and stayed there from Saturday to Tuesday. I lost some footage so you don't get to see the DJ we all fell in love with. Her name is Musa and she DJs at Saints on saturdays if you ever find yourself in what i like to call Devil's Paradise. It was an indescribable experience, a real party experience. The amount of history in the city was also a special experience. It was the living embodiment of the things I've only read about Black culture. I'm rambling, I hope you are not reading this and are actually watching the video.

Love, Alise
