Bedroom Bops Listening Party + Open Mic Downtown Raleigh

Sept. 6, 2022

Back on Fayetteville Street, Candid Culture Arts invites artists to come from all over North Carolina to The Nest Raleigh for a musical night to remember -- in their PJs!

Bedroom Bops is a four song EP by Essi Sings that centers the subject of carrying evolving vulnerability throughout different stages of life and relearning boundaries. In the spirit of the EP name, this listening party and open mic was pajama party themed!

The show started with the amazing Thalia3000 who blessed the audience with her singing (in English AND Spanish!). She covered Hiatus Kaiyote's "Breathing Underwater".

Kai Anerahs soothed folks with her poetry, taking the people on a sonic journey. She performed her iconic and multidimensional song, "DMT".

Bedroom Bops was played as people took photos with the Bedroom Bops Sculpture, drank Melanated Wine, and connected to one another.

Essi Sings surprised the guests with a special performance of "Pizza Gurl" as the pizza arrived!

Open mic began with rapper, ONECOOLMF. Singer, Kiara followed, Sy the poet, Sarah Hoops, Jen Jus Write, South Rome, and more. This was truly a night of local legends, together, just expressing what they have on their hearts!

The night was full of artist support from North Carolina art lovers, photography support from Vhues, vendor support from Show Don't Tell (crochet artist), and Hei (painter). There were two raffles, one winner got a crystal wrapped ring by Show Don't Tell. The other winner got a customizable manifestation painting by Hei!

Be sure to follow these artists and Candid Culture Arts to be in the know about the next open mic event on Friday, September 30th! Don't miss it!
