Last night (11 May) at the Hope & Anchor was a splendid reminder why LOUD WOMEN gigs are so vital. Four very awesome woman-powered bands from up and down the country, and across the Atlantic (Miss Eaves, TV Face, Feral Five and I, Doris) ; a fun raffle full of awesome prizes (original Bikini Kill poster! records! golden pineapple ornament!); filming for Gaptooth‘s new music video (Post-Patriarchy Disco!); plus the friendliest, most up-for-a-good time crowd you could wish to hang out with on a Saturday night. More of this sort of thing please!

In fact … not long at all to wait until the next LOUD WOMEN supported gig – this Thursday at Paper Dress Vintage you can catch HAVVK, Charmpit, Scrounge and I, Doris

Oosterbanger – Loud Womxn AUS

oosterOosterbanger are a four piece band from Perth in Western Australia. What started off as a solo venture for singer and guitarist Ellen Oosterbaan has become a full band with dirty poetic grit, ready to take you on your next adventure. Songs like “Odysseus” mix Greek mythology with feminism and screaming guitars. As well as being fronted by Ellen the band features Indigo Foster-Turke, Jane Azzopardi and drummer Jordan Shakespeare who are all veterans of the Perth indie rock scene. They will be playing the first Aussie Loud Womxn show in Australia, in Perth on the 8th of June at the Bird.

LOUD WOMEN at the Royal Albert Hall: ILL, Nun Habit, Lilith Ai and I, Doris – 17 March 2019

ILL at the RAH

Join us on 17 March for a LOUD WOMEN takeover at London’s Royal Albert Hall! Headliners ILL will be performing a one-off “witchy queer cabaret”, with a collage of dealing with the topic of identity (with added bits from ILL videos) on a loop as a backdrop to their killer set. Here’s a sneak preview of the video:

Support on the night will come from:

* Nun Habit – London-based five-piece, whose fuzzy garage rock sound places a heavy emphasis on loud noises, pop-y tunes and having a good time.

* Lilith Ai – a DIY singer-songwriter, who performs poignant tales of modern city life. Born in northeast London Ai grew up streetwise. In her early teens with only £70 in her pocket, she ran away to America and spent the next few years living on the streets Queens New York which has heavily influenced her music.

* I, Doris – Mummycore riotpop kitchenpunx. “One of the most radical and fun bands we’ve ever seen … they take a glittering disco punk meat cleaver to the gender challenges that no-one else is talking about. Armed with a keytar, a wealth of wit, and a communal I, Doris pledge, you can imagine these Londoners going down a storm at any kind of event.” – Kitmonsters

The event is part of the Royal Albert Hall’s Unstoppable Voices series of events, in partnership with LOUD WOMEN and The Quietus.

Tickets £13.50 / £5 concessions

LOUD WOMEN NYC is GO!

Friday 1st February 2019 saw the launch night of LOUD WOMEN NYC – a new chapter of our beloved organisation, putting musical women in the spotlight.

Cady Siregar is the goddesslike-genius behind the new chapter, and despite being relatively new to the Brooklyn neighbourhood, she expertly organised a hugely successful and well-attended show at the frankly gorgeous venue The Well.

Two UK bands flew over especially for the show – T-Bitch and I, Doris – joining New Yorkers Slut Magic and Basic Bitches for a beautifully transatlantic sisterly punk evening.

More good things are in the pipeline for LOUD WOMEN NYC – join the Facebook group to get involved, and watch this space …
