Feb 1st 2019 sees the launch of LOUD WOMEN NYC at Brooklyn’s The Well – a new live music night celebrating punk rock music powered by women (and gender non-conforming) musicians.
The original LOUD WOMEN chapter began in London, England, in 2015, since which time they’ve put on hundreds of events around the UK, launched an annual festival attracting musicians and music lovers from around the globe, and helped showcase and boost the profile of hundreds of budding punkrockstars. London riot grrrl scenesters Dream Nails describe LOUD WOMEN as “our fairy punk mothers”, and pop legends Bugeye describe “Awesome crowds, amazing bands and one of the most supportive promoters you’re likely to meet”.
Founder of the New York City chapter Cady Siregar hopes to replicate this success here in Brooklyn. The launch gig on Feb 1st will showcase three bands from Brooklyn, and two of London’s finest flying in especially for the show:
Basic Bitches – Garage rock riot grrrl duo
Slut Magic – An angsty, aural make-out session
TBC – LWNYC’s Cady’s own new band
I, Doris – Mummycore art pop (featuring LOUD WOMEN’s founder, Cassie Fox)
T-Bitch – Trans, queer, Riot Grrrl punk
Friday Feb 1st 2019, at The Well, 272 Meserole Street, New York 11206
doors open 8pm, $8 on the door
