The answer, you wookie-boot-wearing, free-love-aspiring, waiting-for-the-drop millennials, is right this very cultural second, the historical point in late summer 2015 AD in which Catfish’s Max Joseph—along with co-writer Meaghan… »8/25/15 5:22pm8/25/15 5:22pm

Krewella Kicked Out Their DJ For Not Partying, Says Lawsuit

Krewella is an EDM supergroup whose sisters, Yasmine and Jahan Yousef, are often two of the only women on the bill at the corporate EDM festivals that have taken over America.
