The Black Madonna plays at Boom Boom Room

The first time that The Black Madonna played at the venerable Boom Boom Room she was spinning for the Dust Traxx residency in The Green Room, and completely terrified. Though the night went well, she says that the party didn't last much longer after that in that particular configuration.
