Join the Urbana Public Arts Program and Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center for the next installment of Open Scene Open Mic, a downtown showcase of poetry, spoken word, music, and artistic expression designed to promote community, creativity, and connection! Bring your latest!
Ja’Naea Modest/DJ Silkee has been deejaying for four years in the Central Illinois area. She has been able to open up for local artists as well as some well-known artists (Mystikal, Young Dolph, Tink, Tweet, D Low, DJ Self), does private parties and residencies at clubs and bars in the Champaign area. Silkee has always had a love for music and the fascination of deejaying. Her mother introduced her to music at a young age. Due to her mother being ill a good portion of her life, she decided to put that passion on the back burner to take care of her until recently. She also promotes and organizes different events in the community, and is an instructor for C-U Girls Rock.
Open Scene Open Mic is a multigenerational event! Bring the whole family for activities and a chance to showcase talents!
