On July 29, 2022, Madame Lou’s will be transformed into an Alice &Wonderland themed party under the pop-up series, Revel.
Created by Parker Mills, 100% of the proceeds from Revel will go to Treehouse for Kids, a charity focused on supporting youth experiencing foster care. The music will consist of adventurous left-field house and techno via three B2B’s, featuring the psychedelic selections of local Seattle DJs: Austin Robertson b2b Interwave Surfer, Eliogold b2b Simone BG, and park Mills b2b Derek Pavone.
“Revel” means “to enjoy oneself in a lively and noisy way, especially with drinking and dancing.” This pop-up series was created to find another reason to bring nightlife attendees together. Pairing a night out with a charity fundraiser gives the evening a sense of community. Events like Revel also help highlight a broad array of talent.
About the creator
Parker Mills has been organizing events since college at the University of Florida. He later got involved in DJing to continue to expand his involvement in the event space. He has opened for renowned artist QuestLove, played New Year’s Eve at Kremwerk, and has been a regular for opening nights at one of Seattle’s newest nightclubs, Supernova.
We asked Parker what his goals are as a DJ:
“I think a DJ’s goal should always be to make the audience dance. I’ve got a bit of an eclectic taste, and like to play anything from indie dance, disco and electro to more minimal, edgy shades of underground house. Discovering these tracks and listening to music is what fuels my passion for DJ’ing in the first place, and being able to share that with an audience in a way that gets a reaction is incredible.”
Mills has a long-standing passion for supporting non-profit organizations and charities. He became involved with Treehouse for Kids during the pandemic, as they offered a strong and fully remote ambassador program.
About Treehouse for Kids
Treehouse for Kids was founded in 1988 by social workers with the vision to “create a world where every child that has experienced foster care has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams and launch successfully into adulthood.”
Thirty years later, the organization supports more than 7,800 youth in foster care. By 2027, it is their goal that 90% of youth who have experienced foster care in Washington state will complete high school, and plan to transition into independence.
All of the proceeds from Revel will go to Treehouse for Kids. You can purchase tickets to the event here.
