🎤 Live Performance/Hybrid DJ:
Described by fans as “Madonna meets Hey Arnold meets Michael Alig meets Grace Jones meets infinity,” Jennifer Vanilla is the entrepreneurial fantasy vessel and avatar-cultivation experiment LARPed into reality by Becca Kauffman, a performance artist and current MFA grad student at Portland State University. Genre-fluid by design, JV is an all-purpose, ecstatic hypeman who functions as a noun, a verb, and an adjective all at once. After sharing stages with Yaeji, Of Montreal, Carrie Brownstein, YACHT, Cindy Wilson of The B-52's, Dynasty Handbag, Sateen, Helado Negro, Mr. Twin Sister & more, their debut full-length album, Castle in the Sky— a jennifreaky journey into ‘90s dance music and art pop inspired by the likes of Deee-lite and Will Powers— is out now on Sinderlyn Records.
