Ten years ago Resistance dropped the needle and plugged in Topeka for a four-year epic dance party that would have resounding vibrations. More than a celebration of music; Resistance was a movement for dub step, trap and trance changing stigmas in Topeka. Headquartered at the Boobie Trap Bar and born by local DJs Jeremy Gaston and Joshua Luttrell, the dub step subculture foundation exploded. Resistance lifted the needle and pulled the cord at their last live dance party on July 24, 2014. Celebrate the movement, music and artists tonight. Resistance! is hosting a celebration (virtual) from 8p – 2a and seveneightfive + ArtsConnect House Concert will be dropping by around 9:30p to get in on the action.
