THE HEADLINER : MARK REDITO
Producer/DJ Mark Redito (fka Spazzkid) has one of the most positively charged and energetic live sets of any electronic artist hailing from Los Angeles right now. Focusing in on hyper dance, J-pop inspired bangers, Redito grabs influence from a wide assortment of genres to create an ever evolving world of intimacy, intensity, and playfulness that's rarely seen in dance music.

EMW Bookstore is the community space of the 21st century, at the frontiers of creative placemaking. Located between Central and Harvard Square, EMW Bookstore is an organizing center, community library, event space, and arts and tech hub for cross-disciplinary community programming.
In 1998, EMW Bookstore was originally opened as the Chinese-language bookstore East Meets West. East Meets West served as a hub of art and activism and the home of Boston Progress Arts Collective, which organized what is now the longest running APIA open mic on the east coast, East Meets Words.
EMW’s mission is to empower individuals and communities to realize their creative potential through artistic expression. We provide innovative programming and a dynamic creative community space at the intersection of art, technology and social justice. Our activities are rooted in values of sharing, trust, respect, and mutual support. By using our space as a launchpad for community innovation, we strive to expand the concept of family to our immediate community and the world.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for business inquiries, collaborations, or to just say hi!
Villa Victoria is chair accessible. We will prioritize chair access. Please find or contact an EMW Staff member for assistance with entry through front door (we will be wearing red lanyards!).
Wellness Squad members will be present at the event to facilitate emotional and community safety.
Code of Conduct
We strive to foster a space of inclusivity and respect, and in doing so, we seek to give a platform to people from marginalized identities and/or communities to speak their truths. We ask everyone to leave (in no particular order): ableism, ageism, classism, fatphobia, homophobia, misogyny, racism, transphobia, and all oppressive language, attitudes, and actions at the door. We ask that we hold ourselves and one another accountable to creating a culture in which we treat each other with consent and respect. This looks like and is not limited to respecting people's physical and emotional boundaries and receiving explicit verbal consent before touching someone or crossing other personal boundaries. If you observe a breach of code of conduct during the event, please notify a EMW personnel and/or contact this number to reach a EMW Bookstore at (857) 600 1244.
