AJA LIVE | Box Office Tour | Kelowna

Rebellious Unicorns is PROUD to welcome AJA to Kelowna for a very special performance at Sapphire! For one night only, the American drag superstar and rapper will be performing a 45 minute set in Kelowna as part of their Box Office Tour! 

AJA, perhaps best known for appearing on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9, will be sharing the stage with several amazing local queens – as Jenna Telz, Sparkle (and her Diamonds), Freida Whales, Alexa Nerezza and Ginger Snapp perform three short group numbers to warm things up and kick off the show.

AJA (pronouns: they/them) is a Bedstuy, Brooklyn born-and-raised rapper whose “Nicki Minaj-level wordplay” (Rolling Stone) and vicious flow continue to break barriers within the mass-dominated world of hip-hop as a genderqueer Black and Arab artist who’s unapologetically authentic with their craft. 

Known for their “flawless execution” (Vibe Magazine) AJA has amassed a global fanbase following the 2018 release of their first EP, In My Feelings, and breakout on RuPaul’s Drag Race. With their debut album BOX OFFICE (Feb. 2019) AJA’s songwriting, flow and production soars to new and impressive heights, featuring iconic collaborations with CupcakKe, Rico Nasty, Shilow, Shea Coulee and Lady Luck, proving AJA is not simply a reality TV star, but an artist all on their own. AJA is supporting during this show by Shilow.

Will you join us to see AJA perform in Kelowna?

FruitCake: Offstage

Event Title: FruitCake: Offstage

 

You can never have too much FruitCake in your life… It’s true! With that in mind, we’re bringing FruitCake back for one very special night this coming long weekend. This is FruitCake: Offstage (AKA the unofficial afterparty for DIVA).

If you’re attending the DIVA show, present your ticket at FruitCake and you’ll get VIP access (jump ahead of the line). However, capacity is limited so you’ll want to arrive as soon as possible.

We’re holding the event on the 3rd floor of the club previously known as Level – the same space where we had so much fun at FruitCake: Pride – and Slim Tyme will be spinning tracks (Slim Tyme also performed at the Kelowna Pride Festival).

Admission is $10 at the door (no pre-sales). Please enter via the back alley. Unfortunately, the venue is not accessible as there are steep stairs to gain access.

Don’t let those post-Pride blues get you down, come on down for an evening of great fun at FruitCake: Offstage! See you on Saturday.

Please note that there will not be a drag performance at this FruitCake. This event has no affiliation with the Diva drag show.

This is a 19+ event.
