On March 24, 2018 Womxn F*ck Shit Up DC will be shaking the patriarchy and the walls of Songbyrd, 2475 18th St NW, Washington, D.C. Doors open at 5pm and womxn movers, shakers and music-makers will be f*cking up privilege until 12am. Pre-sale tickets are $20.
WFSU DC is an extension of the LA-based music and art event Women Fuck Shit Up Fest, founded by a collective of womxn in the music industry on the west coast. Their mission is to use music and art to bridge communities and raise awareness around social justice issues, aiming to create a community of womxn to hone their power and defy the feminine stereotype of “softness.”
On March 24, we at WFSU DC aim to amplify the voices of people of color, the LGBTQIA2S+ community, and all womxn-identifying humans through a night of art, music and solidarity. We want to empower and honor the fortitude of our community. We aim to bring together diverse people, ideas, identities, and works of art in order to foster the collective empowerment of all womxnkind. Being located in the nation’s capital, we have the privilege of existing in the heart of the patriarchy and by extension, oppression. We are witnesses to how toxic masculinity wraps itself in bureaucracy to routinely oppress “otherness.” This fest is a joyful act of resistance to bring the community together.
WFSU DC’s inaugural fest lineup includes: Santa Librada, BOOMscat, The CooLots, Aurora Lloyd, Chelsea Shorte, More Than FM, Sheila, and Lauren Ileana Sotolongo to name a few – and handful of national gems – such as Militia Vox, Michi, WASI, Julia Weldon, and The Txlips. The full lineup can be found here.
