Mija and her FK A Genre Tour return to LA to once again unite EDM kids and pop queens alike!
If you’ve heard of Los Angeles-based DJ Amber Giles aka Mija, then you’ve probably heard of her notorious genre-defying tour, FK A Genre. And for those of you who haven’t, last year the Phoenix-born DJ mystified audiences with a tour chock-full of special guests who played everything but what they’re known for, hence the name of the tour.
I, like the rest of the world, loved the idea but unfortunately never got a chance to catch one of the shows for myself. Now Mija and her FK A Genre are back with an equally full special guest list and I’ll finally get to experience her genre-mixing talents live this Saturday, December 12 at The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles.
Joining Mija will be Tennyson, Kelli Schaefer, and more so make sure to grab your tickets HERE before they’re gone!
Stream Mija “Bad For U” (feat. Kelli Schaefer) on SoundCloud:
Since moving to Los Angeles, Mija has cultivated and grown her sound to include a little bit of every place she’s been. She named her FK A Genre after her own style, which is known for being a unique synthesis of both electronic and pop stylings. This could be attributed to the professional vocal training she had growing up, in addition to her being a member of her school’s choir before she quit to promote raves in her hometown. Basically, I aspire to be Amber Giles.
Not only is Mija bringing back her FK A Genre tour, she’s also giving back by partnering with Red Bull Sound Select and the charity My Friend’s Place to provide homeless youths shelter in Hollywood. Attendees of the show will be able to purchase T-shirts for a $10 minimum donation, all of which will be donated directly to the organization. Additionally, there will be a sock drive where people will be able to donate any pair of new socks or underwear, so make sure to bring a pair to the show!
Mija’s FK a Genre sound and tour has drawn in people of all musical tastes and preferences, for it discriminates against no genre. Those who attend will be treated to a surprise medley of house, trap, hip-hop, pop, and more, so make sure not to miss this second opportunity to experience it for yourself!
