What brings you to Boston? I was born and raised in Boston
Tell us about yourself (What are you passionate about? Any side hustles?):
I was born and raised in Boston, the city with a rich history and a relatively small urban community. Growing up, I’ve seen flashes of good, moments of bad, and experienced the “boring Boston”. Its not until recently, my sister and I felt we could counter the “boring” and “bad” reputations and replace it with consistent dopeness and fresh energy through music. Our city doesn’t have an inclusive environment that encourages the convergence of young professionals and influencers in the art, tech, music and fashion industries to commune without barriers of the city’s traditional guard of nightlife. We had a burning desire to create a chill night out in Boston that welcomes and embraces our very own city’s eclectic minds and aesthetics in one curated yet informal space.
So here I introduce to you The KickBack Boston… The mission of The KickBack is to bring together like-minded individuals who are tired of the same-old routine nightclub environment with long lines, overzealous VIP crowds and the monotonous Top-40 Serato-filled play lists. But instead, The KickBack cultivates an organic and unpretentious space where a gathering of trill millennials can eat, socialize, take back a few drinks and vibe-out to a diverse rotation of live DJs. KickBack Boston events are hosted on a Wednesday evening in premier and emerging locales throughout the city of Boston.
What’s one thing we should know about you? I like to think left in a right hand world.
