"Before you go and judge me just know that I am skin, bones, blood, flesh & energy. I am a constant work in progress. I believe that is all I could truly know about myself for certain." -Annakickarse
Annakickarse, the outgoing rebel, is a 21-year-old DJ, event coordinator, and artistic phenomenon from New York City who has worked her way from nothing to something.
In the year 2011, at age 18, Anna went to her first NYC night club and was employed as a go-go dancer. At that club, she met New York City's number one DJ, Jess Marquis. While dancing, she had become Jess' assistant for NYC's longest running weekly party, 'Trash'. This infamous, cooky and sexy Club-Kid event was held every Friday night in The Studio of Webster Hall. As his assistant, she learned the mechanics of booking events, and spent countless hours looking over the shoulder of Jess as he DJ'ed.
After only four months of practice under Jess and spinning some local shows, Jess gave Anna her first shot as a DJ at Webster Hall in December of 2012. It was a huge success, and in May of 2013, she was ordained as a Resident DJ of the 'Trash' party. In the following months, Anna would go on to release many mashups, as well as establish several of her own weekly on-going events in the Big Apple.
In addition to Webster Hall, Anna has played various venues such as Pacha, Highline Ballroom, Bar 13, Grace Hotel, a private New Years Eve event located in the heart of Times Square, is involved with the Zombie Rave, and maintains a monthly residency for the 'SFX Party’ that she throws with one of her partners in crime. Anna has shared the bill with various DJ's such as Monikkr, R13ZA, Gosteffects, Fat & EZ, and has closed for Otto Knows in the Grand Ballroom of Webster Hall. Her first colossal progressive house track “Reborn" can be found on Soundcloud. She is currently involved in a few collaborations, and is open to working with other established producers. Anna (Annakickarse) is now a nightlife sensation, an extremely talented DJ, actress, dancer, event coordinator & so much more….
She's not the girl everyone picks on anymore.
"The energy, vibe, and excitement within it is so unreal so why not share it? I will put 110% into something you only asked 90% for. It's not about the money or fame unless you make it out to be. It's about having yourself feel like you did something incredible at the end of the day, and to be in that special mindset when you go on stage and share your happiness with everyone else." - Annakickarse
