Winter Warmer – – Patrick Barry / Jen Barnes

Feeling chilly this winter? Come feel the heat on Flask’s dance floor with 2 incredible djs playing amazing house music all night long!

**This is also a birthday party for 4 friends- Kathryn Haigh, Allyson Nicholson, Kait Pressey, and Hillary Winslow

Jen will be staying up way past her bedtime to help celebrate Hillary, Kait, Allyson, and Kathryn’s birthdays! For those that don’t know, Jen mixed sets under the DJ name “popgirl23” for almost 2 decades. First playing out around 1998 or 1999, she gained her first of many residencies in about a year’s time. Her ass-whooping deep funky house sets were heard at Una Wine Bar, Lava Lounge, The Mercury, Bubba’s Sulky Lounge, The Roxy, and too many to even remember. She was voted “Portland’s Best DJ” in various local magazines and other media for the better part of the 2000’s. She has played in more than two dozen cities across the US, including both coasts and the south, plus the UK and the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Jen was also known as a champion of the underground rave and house music scenes in Maine and New England going back since the beginning of the 90s. She threw her first events way back in 1992 and helped bring Beltek Festival from what it was, to what it became. She has been there, done that, and bought the lunchbox. Jen will be playing some sexy a$$ $hit!

With a dedication and desire to grow that is rarely seen in some new DJ’s, Patrick honed his skills playing for Boston’s eclectic musical community at different house parties, sharing deck time and gaining tips from Boston djs. In October of 2006, Patrick launched himself into the club scene with his first club gig at the infamous Venu nightclub, a notorious spot to launch and introduce new talent into the scene. It was here that Patrick’s sound began to evolve and his love for techno grew to compliment his love for house music. His technical skills improving each time he stepped behind the decks, Patrick’s undying desire to obtain every track he could to help polish his sound, grew and grew landing club and warehouse gigs regularly at throughout Boston as well as New York, Montreal, Miami, Philadelphia, Montego Bay (Jamaica), Ottawa, Portland (ME), Washington (D.C.), Providence, Portsmouth (NH), and Burlington (VT) alongside djs such as Danny Howells, Lee Burridge, Rødhad, Mr. C, Paul Woolford, Dj Three, YokoO, Matt Tolfrey, Culoe De Song, Till Von Sein, Ian Pooley, John Tejada, Chloe Harris, Will Saul, La Fleur, Funk D’Void, Juan MacLean, Ejeca, Phonique, Dance Spirit, Lazare Hoche, Jimpster, Pleasurekraft, John Debo, Francis Harris (Adultnapper), Blond:ish, Oliver $, Naveen G, David Scuba, Ejeca, Pete Moss, Jay Tripwire, Urulu, Pezzner, Fred Everything, Adam Shelton, Clive Henry, and Justin Martin.

In 2010, Patrick was named a resident at the famous Cambridge Wednesday night (now called Re:Set) @ The Phoenix Landing as well as Portsmouth’s Red Door, regularly playing sets and helping to bring in top notch talent to the venues. In 2012, Patrick and fellow Boston dj Tom Bartlett formed the duo “SITH” bringing their brand of deep and funky tech and house to dance floors everywhere. 2013 saw the creation of Dusk Till Done, an underground events company, which hosted numerous forward thinking artists in the Boston area at clubs and other locations.
