Riot Chica presents: BAD REPUTATION (1 year Anniversary!!!) Riot Chica is a queer/punk/riot grrrl party in Brooklyn that celebrates feminism and DIY culture. It focuses on sharing empowering underground music made by ladies & queers from the past & present. This month we are back and it's our 1 year anniversary! Oh how time flies! What an awesome year it has been! We have worked with some super amazing bands & having Don Pedro as our home base has been nothing but a blessing. Looking forward to more years of DIY awesomeness. We also want to celebrate the legendary Joan Jett, because she captures what the Riot Chica spirit is all about. Live performances by: ✪ Dirty Excuse ✪ THE VIOLENCE ✪ The Bleed As always Shomi Noise will be playing a bunch of music made by ladies and queers. And Lizxnn Dis Astor will be greeting you at the door. Where: Don Pedro Doors: 8pm Cover: $7 ✪ Don Pedro is wheelchair accessible and provides gender neutral private restrooms ----------------------- RIOT CHICA FEMIFESTO ✪ Riot Chica exists because people need alternatives in the NYC queer underground. ✪ We want to challenge music standards and aesthetics from the mainstream that are driven by capitalism and consumerism. ✪ We don't believe in celebrity culture, fame/popularity contests or any of that bullshit. No one is better than you and you are not better than anyone. We believe everyone is special and unique. ✪ This party is not about the DJ or DJing, it is all about the music. ✪ We will not play music that offends women or queers. ✪ We will not play top 40 or music that you can hear in any other party, club, or bar. ✪ We are committed to playing underground music made by ladies and queers, especially current local artists/bands, but also empowering anti-establishment music from the past like riot grrrl, 90s queercore, and any other music that might have influenced this. ✪ We realize that people want to be heard through the music they make and should be inspired, encouraged, and empowered to do this with whatever resources they have. ✪ Riot Chica wants to be a platform for music you wouldn't hear otherwise. Music that might be coming straight out of someone's bedroom. ✪ We want to question and challenge the notion of cool as cultural currency and how it sometimes operates in oppressive ways. ✪ We want to be a welcoming space for misfits, queers, punks, dorks, geeks, the awkward, the shy, and/or all of the above. ✪ We strongly believe in DIY culture, social justice, self-love, and feminism
