The word plush may be employed as a noun (a "rich fabric") or an adjective ("luxurious"). In both instances, the term signifies smooth sensuality and delicious comfort.
Which is exactly what Miami native and Palm Beach County resident, Christina Farrah (known to many of her friends and acquaintances as "Kiwi") was hoping to invoke when she named her new monthly musically-inclined getty at Lake Worthy's Coastars Coffee Bar.
"I called it 'Plush Lounge' because I wanted it to be lounge-y," Farrah confirms. She is quick to add, "It's not really a dance night, but we'll see how it goes." She continues, with an honest chuckle, "Resisting bass tracks might be difficult."
Although Kiwi -- who, BTW, DJs as "Theda Gla$$" -- admits that, as a bad bitch born and raised in the County of Dade, she likes "to get down 305 Style." And as a collaborator of Miami-based art collective the end/SPRING BREAK, as well as an avid participant in the local music scene, Farrah's informal party-tunes selection has led her to refine her chops relative to strategically dropping massive bangers.
However, Plush Lounge will deviate from sloppy drunk booty-dancing and sweaty selfies. Kiwi explains that each edition will function as sort of "an experimental lab night" where the impetus is more exploratory than wild 'n' crazy. Farrah adds, "I have no idea what I'm doing honestly, but I figure I'll learn along the way and share some good tunes with people as I do it."
Sounds chill to us. Or maybe the world is plush.
