p1nkstar & Y2K

Y2K is a performance, music, and installation artist, whose work moves freely through different realms of club theatre, music and multimedia performance art. Their work explores themes of queer stigma and trauma as it relates to technology and the “”online””.

p1nkstar™ (ur fav electr0nic pop superstar!!) creates a world through music and conceptual shows mixing saccharine beats with subversive lyrics, tiaras with ball gags, and body hair with hypnotic ponytails – a realm far removed from this dimension’s binaries. Musically categorized as hyperpop, p1nkstar has been described as early Aughts Paris Hilton on Hello Kitty steroids by The Austin Chronicle. In her live performances p1nkstar affectionately delivers pure pop performance, mixing witty vocals with electronic beats and video interludes with choreographed numbers and back-up dancers.

Y2K is a performance, music, and installation artist, whose work moves freely through different realms of club theatre, music and multimedia performance art. Their work explores themes of queer stigma and trauma as it relates to technology and the “”online””. In their multimedia performances, they embody a personified version of the Y2K Virus/Millennium Bug  spreading queerness through technology (“the desirous virus leading the queer apocalypse”). Additionally, Y2K operates under the name Y2K Technologies to create dynamic, nightlife experiences centering queer and trans creatives in Texas.
