The Bechdel Sound Test is a collective that is dedicated to celebrating female-fronted music. We put on events for anyone who likes to go dancing in a friendly, non judgemental environment. Unlike other Club nights, all genres are allowed from Indie to Hip Hop, and Disco to Grime. We’re always looking for DJs and to play, as well as volunteers and collaborators so please get in touch if you’d like to be involved – email: thebechdelsoundtest@gmail.com
