DJ based in Charlotte, NC.
#thatdjspider Primarily a goth/industrial DJ with a healthy dose of 80s, 90s, dance, EDM and electro, DJ Spider has spun a variety of formats over the years, which means anything is bound to show up in her sets, described as “vibrant”, “surprising”, “kick-ass”, and “Omigod, is she really that tall?”
Club work began accidentally as she filled in for vacationing DJs. Eventually she was offered a full-time position with the Greenhouse, a very successful bar and restaurant which maintained several of the hottest nights on the island. Everything from party pop, techno, retro, reggae, latin and happy hour classics became part of her repertoire, and she was able to create and promote a number of successful events with the USO, the Temptations, Jimmy Thackery, Hawaiian Tropic, and the Sinbad Soul Music Festival.
Finally deciding that there was more to the world than the Caribbean could offer, Spider moved to Atlanta, where she rediscovered her love of the darker, harder side of music. She returned to the decks in 2001, and it has been non-stop ever since. Now based in Charlotte, NC, her reputation as a both a DJ and an entertainer has been highly rated, as is her commitment to maintaining a Drama-Free Zone. She has opened for the Cruxshadows, the Last Dance, Voltaire, Anders Manga, Bella Morte, and the Crystal Method. Past tours have had her appearing across the country, including recurring appearances across the Midwest, the Eccentrik Festival in Raleigh, Convergence 14 in Tampa, Spellbound and Freaks United in DC, Skin Two in Atlanta, and Dracula’s Ball in Philadelphia. She is no stranger to conventions either, having appeared at Chattanooga’s ConNooga, Minneapolis’ CONvergence, and her beloved DragonCon in Atlanta. Current and past residencies in Charlotte include the fetish event Purgatory, RetroActive 80’s Thursdays, Return of the Bats, Big Mamma’s House of Burlesque, and the Charlotte Roller Girls. She is ridiculously honored to have been voted “Charlotte’s Best Party DJ” for the last 6 years (2006-2011) by the readers of Creative Loafing. Regardless of the size, Spider’s goal is always to make any night the best experience possible for everyone there.
