Runaway Winter Release Party: Oak City Slums, Bless Your Heart, DJ Chela, Queen Plz. 

When: Fri., Nov. 25, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $7-$10

Plenty has changed in Durham since DJ Chela, one of its first prominent female deejays, decided to migrate out of the Bull City several years ago. For starters, the kid she used to know as her best friend's little brother, Gabriel Eng-Goetz, grew up to become the talented owner of one of North Carolina's hippest clothing brands, Runaway. Now they're peers, and he's booked her to co-headline Stacked, Runaway's winter release party and benefit for the Creative Arts in Public and Private Schools (CAPS) program. Durham's music scene has shifted since Chela's departure, too. Hip-hop is no longer king. Electronic music culprits such as the newly minted bass music hero Oak City Slums and Party Illegal's trap trooper, Queen Plz, are largely to blame for that. But no one's complaining—especially not Chela, whose radio, mixtape, and club performances have always embraced progressive sound choices. Durham is the third and final stop of her "Going to Get My Peoples" DJ tour, and y'all could make it so much easier for her to do that by crowding Motorco's dance floor. Also with Bless Your Heart. —Eric Tullis
