VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with DJ Gemini Gilly
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks with DJ Gemini Gilly, who’s officially been spinning for about a year now. She’s DJed a number of quarantine events related to Black Lives Matter and social justice. They discussed Gilly’s love for sharing music from a young age, 2000’s nostalgia, getting her first gigs right before quarantine, working with Leaders Igniting Transformation, and how she’s felt as a black woman right now.
