LIINES / Chorusgirl / Art Trip and the Static Sound – live review and photos by Keira Cullinane

Art Trip & The Static Sound

I never feel so passive aggressive, confident or direct about my vagina as I do when watching Art Trip! Watching Melodie stare the crowd down and groove out society’s flaws isn’t the only star of the show; the band are incredible together live and make you feel part of them, too.

Chorusgirl

This was the first time I’ve seen this band who are label mates with LIINES. I was smiling throughout their set (as were they!) Indie pop with melodies, bounce and beat, I have vowed to buy an album when I’m paid.

LIINES

Fuuuuuuck. I’m no writer and am trying to write about the set, but, fuck. They were great and I (me!) danced throughout. You must go see them.

An awesome WitchFest last night at The Unicorn, Camden! We packed the pub with goths, punks, witches, bitches and all kinds of awesome music-lovers!

23261843_10214329949582329_1942102674_o

First up was the fearsome The Creeping Terrors, who treated us to some terrifyingly-good crypt rock.

My favourite song was the ‘La Ragazza Zombificata’ – an Italian language song about a female zombie taking her revenge on catcallers.

“pensavi fossi la vittima ideale
ma ora il tuo cervello mi voglio mangiare!”

23313066_10214329961702632_1199400781_o

Next up was W*llstonekraft, performing their ‘vindication of the rights of undead women’: what a treat! A truly mesmerising performance from this stunning new band. We can’t wait to see them again.

Winnie and the Rockettes joined us then for a raucous and soulful set. We’ve been longing to see this band for a while now and they were gloriously satisfying! Looking forward to seeing more from them.

 

 

23312976_10214329961462626_1578019744_oThen then perfect headliner for our WitchFest – the stunning Art Trip and the Static Sound – led by punk Queen, Melodie Holiday. A rabble-rousing set was a fitting close to the night.

 

 

 

Our collection for the evening raised £49.91 (let’s just call it £50) for the Solidarity Not Silence Campaign, supporting a group of women facing legal action for speaking up about an abusive man.

All in all, a brilliant LOUD WOMEN night – full of awesome music, dancing, laughing, solidarity and giggles! Some very brave folk even let Cassie paint their faces with spooky “designs”. Top fun!

Next gig: 18 November at the Bird’s Nest, Deptford – Vulpynes, Duck, Militant Girlfriend and Basic Dicks.
