What a great weekend for LOUD WOMEN … first of all, our awesome new t-shirts arrived on Friday and they look spectacular!
Then we kicked it off at a new-to-us venue, The Unicorn Camden Live on Friday with four stonking bands: Ghum, WITCH FEVER, Ghum, Think Pretty, The Noise & the Naive and Witch Fever and Think Pretty. It was a really fun and friendly night, with all the bands supporting each other – exactly what LW is all about!
Saturday afternoon we headed to The Lexington for an all-ages matinee, which went down a treat with a massive crowd of parents and kids! Huge thanks to Argonaut, Thee Dinnerladies, Militant Girlfriend and Rabies Babiesfor coming and playing such fun sets! It was just gorgeous to see tiny kids dancing about with their arms in the air, loving the music, and climbing up on stage to have a bash on the drums and a shout down the mic – some future punkrock stars in the making there I’m sure. Special thanks to Kate Whaite for being Great and keeping the kids entertained with stories and games between bands – she made lots of new fans, small and big 🙂
We’ve got more, very exciting gigs coming up this Autumn, starting with our 2nd Birthday Party! On 13th October we’ll be celebrating at the Fiddler’s Elbow – Camden, with 4 of our favourite bands – Foxcunt, GUTTFULL, MX Tyrants and Layzervag. There’s going to be partybags full of records and goodies, yummy cake, and LOUD WOMEN karaoke … your chance to take to the stage! https://www.facebook.com/events/154554368414307/

THE BABY SEALS
THE MENSTRUAL CRAMPS
Everybody’s favourite gig people Loud Women are teaming up with some of the best radical women artists to raise money for organisations fighting and dealing with domestic violence. Do join us for what will be a very special night with Grace Petrie, Dream Nails, Nia Wyn and Efa Supertramp on 14th May at the wonderful Fiddler’s Elbow in Camden. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
Grace Petrie’s and Dream Nails’ London shows have a habit of selling our so advanced booking is definitely recommended.
Combining folk punk with dextrous finger picking, Grace Petrie is now quite widely known as one of the best radical songcrafters around. If by some misfortune you’ve not yet heard her, check her out here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ue47ENmNhjc
Dream Nails describe themselves as ‘Feminist punk witches from hell’ – what’s not to love? The all-loud-women band have blown the roof off every time they’ve played, and their new EP ‘DIY’ is a must-buy
“The motto is: Stay angry. Anger is energy. Dream Nails are the Ramones meets Bikini Kill, kid you not” – The Girls Are
Nia Wyn’s performances are searing and powerful. A blues influenced singer backed by a steel resonator guitar, and words that you won’t easily forget. Check her out her amazing song I Can’t Breathe https://youtu.be/vPPF0xJ4IOo
Efa Supertramp is Cardiff’s finest menywod swnllyd, and all-round top protest punk folkster. Check out her awesome zine too
Jordan Le Fay is a truly unforgettable songcrafter. Backed by an acoustic guitar and an ever evolving band of assistant-bards her words are often dark and raw, and her sound is always a massive pleasure to listen to.
