MAYDA Album & Video Release Party with 5ifth House and Diane

We all know the unbearable symptoms and the dangerous funky side effects. You are not alone. We love you. Join us for a night of immunity by celebration of MAYDA’s new album “Infected”. Better come to get VacciMAYDA’d with MAYDA, Diane, and 5ifth House. Live videos and visuals produced by Nanotako Studios in collaboration with MAYDA.

“Her (Mayda) R&B-infused pop is undeniably fresh, as she swings between pared-down acoustic struts, full-band funkadelic blasts, and electronic drumbeats and synth flourishes that would make the Purple One proud…. it’s hard not to anticipate big things from the petite yet larger-than-life pop songstress.” -Andrea Swensson

Mayda’s music has been featured locally as well as internationally. Numerous of Mayda’s songs have been on Rachael Ray show, Good Morning America, KFC youtube, Reebok Seoul commercials, Jersey Shore, and cable networks such as Showtime and MTV.

5ifth House is a duo consisting of Yawa Glen on electric guitar and SoulFlower on bass. Sharing and exchanging vocals, their lyrics are evoking, introspective – usually coming from a place of personal experience or contemplation. A grungy-soft psychedelic sound emanates from their instruments. Pulling in the focus of the audience and letting it go in thrashing release. The name is pulled by the astrological symbolism of creativity, self expression and exploration known as the field of experience as the ‘5th House’.

Diane is a St. Paul-based musician and radio host/producer of The Local Show on MPR’s The Current. Primarily a vocalist and guitarist, Diane plays and writes an eclectic variety of music including hip-hop, folk, rock ‘n’ roll, experimental improv and jazz.

Also a journalist, Diane has served as radio host/producer of The Local Show since August 2021. Every Sunday from 6-8pm, she presents a variety of some of the best music Minnesota has to offer, as well as interviews some of the most influential voices in the state. Prior to her role at The Current, Diane worked as the talent booker for the Minneapolis-based venue/restaurant Icehouse. Diane first gained notoriety in her hometown of Fargo-Moorhead.
