GATA, along with other indie artists, had a hand in helping to establish a new site for musicians called ConcrtMe. The site is for indie acts to get together and book their own shows, and deal directly with club bookers, as well as make the experience easy for fans with purchasing tix and offering incentives for the fans. Over the past few weeks, GATA has had a feature/mini interview on the site's Facebook page; one of the pictures is above. Check out the page and meet all the musicians!
GATA was chosen for the Rude Boy Mixtape Vol. 2! You can hear it here!
GATA was profiled in The Comeback and a Spanish-language blog called XOXO, Richarde. In both interviews, she talks about style, women in mainstream hip-hop, and the ubiquitous Nicki Minaj question. You can read them here and here.
....aaaaaand we're back!
After taking a bit of a hiatus, GATA is currently writing her next project, and promises it will touch on deeper things than what GATA City reflected.
She is also working on shows and a few appearances, TBA.
LAST MINUTE SHOW! ThaGataNegrra will be making a last minute appearance at the Palm Street Annual Block Party! This party is one of GATA's faves to play as it emphasizes community and she is always welcomed warmly there. For more information, check here.
