Jaclyn Rachelle Doesn’t Care and Neither Should You

by Malik Hall

Los Angeles’ Jaclyn Rachelle doesn’t care what you think, and I mean literally. Her new single “I Don’t Care” is an anthem for those being held back by a hater’s negativity. Rachelle makes it point to inspire the listener to not give a fuck and liberates them to be exactly who they want to be; the chorus of the 2:33 long track is cutting and to the point. She puts it simply, ”I’m a real bitch, I ain’t taking your shit.” You can visualize those who fueled the track’s creation being left speechless after one listen. Her departure from R&B is a complete contrast from 2019’s “LMK” which conveys a sense of longing for a lover and the message more in line with her single “Get Back”. ᴙozéI produced “I Don’t Care,” so be prepared for accompanying visuals from him within a month or two.

Betty Who, headliner of Kinetic Presents Pride Month event

Zach Renovátes, Kinetic Presents: In the Name of Love For All

As a producer bringing some major events to Capital Pride this year, Zach Renovátes admits that he was keen to get Betty Who on the lineup. After having seen several of her live performances already, Renovátes knew the Australian would make a fine marquee addition to the “Kinetic Presents Candyland” event at Echostage June 10.

Fortunately, she was both available and interested.

“Something that I personally saw was that [Betty Who] is one of the most pro-LGBT singer-songwriters I’ve ever ever seen perform live,” Renovátes said, adding that the D.C. audiences at her concerts come largely from within the gay community. “So she absolutely knows that we as queer people make up a huge percentage of her fan base.”
The June 10 event is the main draw of a weekend of collaborations between Kinetic Presents and the Capital Pride Alliance in celebration of D.C. Pride 2023. Other big names who will play at various venues around the District include DJs Abel and Cindel, Dan Slater, as well as Jerac and Paulo Fragoso. It’ll be a pride-filled musical weekend indeed, with Echostage, Sax, Bunker and Bliss Nightclub hosting the pulsing sounds of revelry. And there’s also the big parade on June 10.
