DC synthpop band Loi Loi is a local favorite here at Parklife DC, and we are excited that frontwoman Kristie Di Lascio is releasing Me Dystopia, the first full-length album by Loi Loi, via Blight Records — today, Feb. 15!
In honor of the occasion, Parklife DC chatted with Kristie about how she made the record, what it means to her, and what’s next for Loi Loi. After you read our interview with Kristie, buy Me Dystopia on Bandcamp and grab a ticket for the record release show at Comet Ping Pong on Saturday, March 16.

Loi Loi (frontwoman Kristie Di Lascio and Ron Storhaug) gamely tried to get a dance party started at Union Stage recently. The show began early with Subradio, followed by Loi Loi, but I had the feeling that the audience wasn’t quite loose enough yet to move their feet.
