About An Evening Celebrating SOPHIE

“She is waiting for us in the beating, pounding joys and the inebriated exultations of the dancefloor, where we will meet her again and again.” Shon Faye on the late SOPHIE, Frieze Magazine 2021.

Last year, the world lost one of its greatest contemporary musical pioneers, Scottish musician, DJ & producer SOPHIE. Her impact and influence on the musical landscape is undeniable and lasting: her production credits include household names including Charli XCX, Vince Staples, Kim Petras and Madonna, and her debut album Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides (2018) was released to near-universal acclaim.

Things will kick off with a screening of a short and fascinating documentary on SOPHIE’s legacy. Panelists El Buckley Reid (they/them) (Sociology PhD Student, UL/Volunteer, Trans Writers Union), Greta Jursys (she/her) (DJ, Member of Small Trans Library Dublin) & Fiona Leigh (she/her) (Writer & Musician, Member of Trans Writers Union) will be joined by moderator Kelly Earley (she/her) (Freelance Journalist, formerly The Journal/Silicone Republic) to then discuss SOPHIE’s work and its profound legacy.

This will be followed by an audience Q&A as we open up discussions.

We’ll continue into the night to remember her on the dancefloor, dancing to SOPHIE and SOPHIE-inspired tracks with sparkling DJ sets from Wastefellow, darkmavis and Roo Honeychild.
