Small Victories invites you to party into the night, like never before, on the Friday of Spring Weekend. Join us at our biggest production yet, split into two stages, featuring live bands Clyde Lawrence and Butter, DJ A2Z, Alexander Norocea, S.A.S.H.A. and a very special headliner, Anna Lunoe.
As a DJ Anna continued to support the ideas of crossover dancefloors by spinning sets where rap was blended into Baltimore Club and future bass was mixed with house. She looks to rule-breaker DJs like Jackmaster, Diplo and Para One for inspiration and guidance. As a songwriter, she looks to the emotive personas behind danceable acts like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Sampha, Tom Vek, Romanthony and The Rapture. She cites Outkast, Beck, Spank Rock and French electro-rap group TTC as examples of genre innovation.

Aaron Zhang joined the Small Victories team in the spring of 2014, and has quickly become an integral part of the organization. Although only a sophomore, he has become a prevalent part of the Brown University music scene. Appealing to a diverse, eclectic audience and sharing his passion for thumping bass and deeper house in a variety of contexts, A2Z always finds a way to toe the line between precise technicality and wide appeal.
Sasha has been with Small Victories since fall of 2014. Having studied at Scratch Academy in NYC, his mixing style encompasses a broad range of genres--deep house, hip/hop, reggae, trap, disco, to name a few-- and he prides himself on being able to explore and weave different genres together into one cohesive narrative.

Fourscore and seven centuries ago, a forgetful friend accidentally left out the milk in some long-forgotten, nary-traveled cave. Over the hours, days, and months, this milk developed a stanky, mind-numbing funk. And quite the historic funk it grew to be. Turns out this is the story of cheese, but something similar probably happened with butter, because damn, Butter brings the funk.
