A night of top drawer pop/punk from some of London's leading female-lead bands. Part of the We Shall Overcome weekend of events taking place all over the country (and beyond!) in solidarity with all those at the sharp end of the austerity cuts. All gig-goers to bring donations to a local foodbank, and there will be collections, cake sales and, of course, A RAFFLE!
It's The Local Girls' AGM. Fun for all the family.
London's funnest feminist dance party returns for their first Summer All Dayer at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen. Join the Clitterati as we celebrate women who rock and put the FUN in fundraising! Live Bands, DJs, Artists, Speakers, Visionaries. Funds raised at this event go to Agnes Pareyio (as seen on BBC 3 Stop Cutting Our Girls) via Daughters Of Eve. Oh and put on your dancing shoes, there will be dancing at this revolution! #EndFGM
Come and celebrate the launch of our album, Wrapped In Plastic, which is being released on 24th July. Joining us is the awesome Cauldronated - A punky, drum-centric, techno adventure featuring Eva Menon, Italian extrasolar poetess and Dave Barbarossa, drummer with Adam and The Ants, Bow Wow Wow, Republica, Chicane... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7x-UubU6do And The brilliance of deux furieuses who have just released yet another great single, Are We Sexy Enough, to "prove you can be poetically political without sacrificing a massive tune". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiUub4wQ7PA Don't miss this.
Headlining are Modernless (& friends!) who are basically a three piece based in London that makes noisy indy/underground/no wave/nu wave/synths/guitar music. Influences are Iggy/Suicide/No Wave/ESG/sonic white noise/space/black n white film. Expect mayhem, raucous activity, a few covers and just riotous rock'n'roll shenanigans! Opening proceedings is the superb London based 3 piece Blindness. With more than a nod to Curve (Debbie Smith is their guitarist!) and using their powerful guitar sounds with the enigmatic stage presence of lead singer Beth, this is a band that will leave you needing to hear more! With Modernless and their friends taking turns on DJ duties, this will be a memorable night!
