Event Details

SubSpace Sessions take the live music experiences of the Charles Hayden Planetarium to new dimensions, bringing the innovative and groundbreaking work to you virtually. Don’t miss these premier virtual events that fuse together the music of some of Boston’s best artists and bands with cutting-edge Planetarium visuals. Each installment is inspired by the music of acts like Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys, Ruby Rose Fox, Dutch ReBelle, Julie Rhodes, and now, Genie Santiago!

Described as spiritual and sensual, Genie Santiago is a musician, poet, visual artist, community collaborator, and healer based out of Boston. Emerging from rough beginnings, her art draws from her experience growing up as a poor, queer Latina and a survivor of sexual abuse.

In 2018, Genie released her debut EP "Know Your Worth" along with a music video for her hit single "2:22am" featuring Red Shaydez. As quoted in Vanyaland, "Santiago’s lyricism [in "Know Your Worth"] is poignant and heart-wrenching; through cautionary storytelling she ruefully illustrates that the journey to self-love typically tends to be a painstaking one."
