As far as hip-hop origin stories go, Kitty Pryde’s “Claire’s clerk from Daytona Beach posts sung-rap on YouTube that becomes popular first on Tumblr, then in The New York Times” was certainly a new one. Since she uploaded her song “Okay Cupid” back in May of 2012, the music video has received more than 1 million hits, and Kitty has toured the country with artists like Danny Brown and Anamanaguchi. Tonight, in her adopted home, she headlines this week’s installment of the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a warehouse after-hours flea market featuring vendors (both culinary and commercial), mini-golf, ping-pong, and opening act Party Supplies, a Fool’s Gold DJ-producer whose live sets unfortunately do not live up to the mixtapes he has made alongside Action Bronson.
