Before ushering in 2013, we asked members of Kansas City's music community to reflect on some of their favorite local moments of 2012. Today: DJ Sheppa.
Best show: Big Freedia at the Riot Room, July 22. "From start to finish, Big Freedia - the queen diva of New Orleans bounce - had the crowd eating out of her hands. I've never seen the Riot Room so packed with sweaty bodies jumping around like crazy."
Runner-up: Lemonade, with Le1f (with Sheppa and Norrit) at FOKL, June 9. "There were amazing atmospheric projections over a haze of fog at the Lemonade/Le1f show. I walked away wanting more. I also was glad that I got to experience it in a venue that does so much to help foster and give a platform for local creative talent."
