Let’s Get to Know Each Other.

Karissa

DJ Karissa

Pronouns: she/her and they/them

Karissa is a polymath--artist, musician, DJ, record label maven, pet parent to Roo Roo the rescue pittie, and all-around human dynamo. Growing up in the verdant hills of west/central Massachusetts, she started collecting albums from age 13 and now has a vast library she loves to share, be it spinning wax at bars and turning folks onto music she's discovered, or crafting the perfect soundtrack for celebrations at Toast and Jam. Karissa’s a literal dyed in the wool artist, with a degree in textile design from the Art Institute of Chicago, where she had a radio show named Turn On Tune In Drop Out that specialized in psychedelic music throughout the ages. All this makes a lot of sense when you learn Karissa has the unusual and very cool gift of synesthesia. She can see music and taste colors! Rad! When she's not rocking the dancefloor, you can catch her rocking behind the drums in the band Les Strychnine.
