Rian Archer is the founder of Sugar/Spice, an independent promoter prioritizing artists who identify as women/non-binary/POC/trans* to better increase representation of marginalized identities in a white, cishet, male-dominated music industry. Their events have featured artists from Dark Skies Association, Tiny Engines, Orange Twin Records, Sacred Bones Records, Jagjaguwar and more, as well as plenty of unsigned, unknown, or DIY musicians. Sugar/Spice plans to continue amplifying the voices of the artists at society’s margins and bringing amazing, accessible art to their local communities. When she isn’t booking shows, Rian practices fine art and commercial photography, specializing in analog processes.
