27 Nov 2015: The Wimmins’ Institute | Grace Petrie @ Bread and Roses, Clapham

LW4_271115_flyer

A night of top notch badass riot wmmmn and protest indie pop celebration, in Clapham’s premier worker-run venue, The Bread and Roses.

Line-up for FRIDAY 27 November:

8.30pm – THE WIMMINS’ INSTITUTE
The WI are proud to be launching their debut album, ‘BADASS LADY POWER PICNIC’ at this event, and will begin the evening with an acoustic set, which may perhaps include some top secret surprise special guest collaboration, which fans of Grace Petrie would do well not to miss. (Spoiler: Grace Petrie will be joining The Wimmins’ Institute for a punk rendition of a locationally-apt traditional folk song. You’ll want to see it.)

“a ‘super group’ packed with individual talent … post-post-riot grrrl, post-feminist, post-Marxist, post-punk rock new wave” – The Morning Star
“AMAZEBALLS! I like Mansplaining best” – BBC London
“Expect much pearl-clutching” – Evening Standard
“Bit of a cracker, actually … Bloody catchy” – Podrophenia
“Ferociously wry and tuneful” – Everett True

10pm – THE WIMMINS’ INSTITUTE
The Wimmins’ Institute will be topping their Grace Petrie sandwich with a 6-wimmins line-up electric punk set, and a few brand new songs because they are all about the second album now …

Doors 8.00 pm
£10 entry (£8 in advance) includes a copy of The WI’s CD.

(The unwaged or those who could afford as cheaper entry, without the CD, should message Cassandra Fox in advance and she’ll make sure you don’t miss out on this brilliant night out.)

Advance tickets from http://badassladypowerpicnic.eventbrite.com/

All welcome!
