LOUD WOMEN NYC is GO!

START SPREADING THE NEWS!

So so SO excited to announce the launch of the new LOUD WOMEN NYC chapter’s first gig, at Brooklyn’s The Well – with Basic Bitches and I, Doris confirmed so far, more TBA soon! This will be a night to remember – tell all your NYC friends! Event link here!

cadyThe new LOUD WOMEN NYC group has been set up by Cady Siregar, a musician we got to know through her awesome band Spare Rib, and also through a magazine she set up, Girl Fiend. In her own words:

I’m a transplant of the London DIY scene now living in NYC and I’m keen to start a Big Apple leg of LOUD WOMEN, and to build and grow a New York-based community of great female & non-binary musicians. I’m eager to start organising regular LW gig nights in the city with some amazing women-led bands. I’d also love some help with running the group and putting on events and reaching out to bands so if you’d like to join, please reach out! I’d love to put our first gig on sometime early in the new year.

it’d also be great for this to be a group for women looking to start and join bands, so we can form thousands of bands and then take over the world. 🆒.

***PLEASE ADD PEOPLE*** to the group who you feel would like to be involved, be it anyone who’d like to help organising events / musicians / bands / anybody wanting to start a band but needing that extra push / anyone & everyone who would like to be involved, period!
🤙🏽 peace out xxx

ABOUT THE MATCHWOMEN’S STRIKE
With no union, no money and no job security, they took action to defend one sacked girl, and ended up facing down one of the country’s most powerful employers. Their unexpected victory began a social movement from which the new union movment sprang, eventually leading to the founding of the Labour Party.

For our 6th annual festival we will take inspiration from each other, and from speakers of diverse gifts who have one thing in common: they never, ever give up!

OUR NEW VENUE
We are thrilled this year to be just a stone’s throw from the matchfactory, right where the strike began. This is the Bow Road the matchwomen knew, and promenaded, dressed to kill and arm in arm, on their days off. Here they began the strike which led to an unprecedented, supposedly impossible victory for poor, working class, largely migrant women.

Our festival will take place in the courtyard of Bow Arts, an organisation that supports art at the heart of the local community, and celebrates its history.

WOMEN, MEN AND CHILDREN WELCOME!
